El Rejectionâ

Got a nice rejection from Shenandoah today, via a handwritten note from R.T. Smith.

I've sent to Shenandoah since the very beginning, and I've never gotten a handwritten note like this before from them until today, so that was welcoming. It seems like a very tough journal to crack.

Usually I like these notes not to necessarily hope to get into the journal next time, but to hope that someone else takes a poem or two, if not more, who also currently has them for consideration.


Leaving for Pennsylvania tomorrow for a week or so.

Jess and I have to do some marriage license thing at the courthouse on Friday morning, and then we're meeting with the Father who's marrying us in the afternoon.

Then I'll be kicking it at the homestead, with family and friends, before the real insanity of summer starts.


Yesterday was the official "Two Months Until We Get Married" mark...
