We got back from Viet Nam yesterday--excellent trip.
Here are a few things I missed while away:
1) "12 Things I Know About the Life of Poetry" by Tony Hoagland, over at Gulf Coast. You want to read this. You do.
2) Japanese miniaturist Tanaka Tatsuya has made a teeny tiny diorama every day for five years, using regular household items originally with 28 mm human figurines. Check it out at deMilked here and here, and if you are as captivated as I am, go to Tanaka's website.
