a glowing review of my debut poetry collection, Weathervane, has appeared in Arc Poetry magazine. Poet and reviewer Peter Richardson has many kind things to say about several poems and the book as a whole, touching on such pieces as "Daylight Saving," "Dressing in Layers," "Choosing a Mattress," "A Millisecond of Gravitas" and others.
Richardson closes the review with this great line: "This is a spirited debut by a poet who combines keen observation with the metaphoric chops of a serious funnyman." Much thanks to him and to Arc for this piece.

My wife Rebecca Rosenblum has brought countless wonderful things into my life, but probably the best is her insistence that we pause and recognize great things when they happen in our lives. I'm still getting used to doing that.
