Every Possible Blue is here! A box of books was waiting by the front door one night this week. I opened it slowly, carefully, with the same mix of excitement and worry I felt when Subject to Change was published, back in 2004. But then I saw it, and held it in my hands, and flipped through it: my book.
There are more powerful feelings in the world, to be sure -- more meaningful moments, other things I might wish for even more -- but for a writer this one ranks very high on the list.
This book has been a long time in the making -- from writing the first of these poems, to figuring out how they could fit together as a manuscript, to finding a publisher, to seeing the actual book into print. And now, at last, it's here.
