Thanks, Curtis - I should have dropped you a line but I've been swamped lately ... I really appreciate you passing the news along ...

Hi Curtis, I've had the privilege of reading the manuscript of Scott Owens' new book, Paternity. It's one poetry fans won't want to miss. Thanks for spreading the word.

So glad I stopped by to listen to Scott read these poems - what an emotional shared wisdom between daughter and father. Beautiful work.
