I am currently writing a poetry book on the themes of awakenings, scenes of enlightenment, and/or dreams about what gets in the way of spiritual awakening. I am also working on a memoir, parts of which have been published. I became the senior poetry editor, publisher etc. of Many Mountains Moving Press and Many Mountains Moving: a literary journal of diverse contemporary voices by accident; after the founder in Colorado resigned for health reasons at the end of 2004, which was six months after she had published my first book, it appeared that the press would die, the journal would die, and my book would, too. So a few friends and I volunteered to save it and keep it going. Today, the press and the journal are doing pretty well.
