summer & fall 2015

Will I ever find time to update regularly? Probably not! But I am having a great time running around in the meantime. I've been living out of a suitcase since May, traveling across the country and across the world, which has made for a whirlwind of a 25th year. I'm pretty satisfied with this new nomadic lifestyle of mine. Next up is Ireland on Monday!

I recently developed a bunch of photos from summer and fall of last year. I was living in Saint-Martin in the South of France, but I also spent time in Tunisia, Paris, a quick stop in Michigan, and Sweden. I spent most of my time writing, but these photos prove I did actually get out and about as well (not a total hermit). There's something really special about getting to see your photos long after the adventure itself―it allows for a breath of space to better appreciate the memories.

Anyways, here are a couple rolls!

send me on my way

Hi, alive, and busy! Realistically, I will continue to be busy until my move to France in two weeks. (yep, I'm going to be living in the south of France for a few months, that's news!) Since I last posted, I've been hopping around―writing conferences at the Kenyon Review in Ohio and Quest in Vancouver, BC, my cousin's wedding in Montreal, and now Tunisia with my family―and I'm writing and reading like crazy. I've been wrangling poems together for my first book, which has taken pretty much all of my attention. 


I'll be living in tiny Saint-Martin for the next three months, and I will surely be posting more frequently as I document our life in the village! I don't know how wicked awesome my outfits are about to be (spoiler: I packed almost only black, white, and denim items, and half the suitcase is taken up by books), but there will be lots of European mini-adventures and cooking and painting and pictures. 

So, until then, some film photographs from my last hurrah in Raleigh before my move, and a couple from Michigan (and Ohio and Florida and Vancouver) too. I'm already missing everyone back home.

end of it

I'm alive, and what a semester it's been.


It's unreal to me how much can squeeze into just three months. I feel a little dizzy on the other side of it, like I'd been swimming laps as fast as I could and hadn't come up for air, and now I have, and everything's bright and shining and spinning. Anyways, yeah, a few days ago I graduated with my MFA in poetry from North Carolina State University (yay!). I have tons and tons and tons of pictures, and many more stories, of what I've been up to, but I think I'll just stick with the pictures. They're supposed to say a thousand words, right? I'll let them talk for me. 

Here are some film snapshots from my running around with the best people (and poets) around:
