Billy Collins has been posting a poem a day on Facebook. I think it might be my favorite part of FB right now. His poems work like this: witty observation about everyday life...going somewhere with it...where?...oh TRANSCENDANCE.

Maybe I should aim to be the Billy Collins of art jewelry. Except I think that person who works with photographs might be. Bettina Speckner. I had that idea before, working with photographs, remember?

I just love the exercise. To be the X, Y, or Z or art jewelry. Figuring out what that would mean really does bring new possibilities to light.
