This image symbolizes me moving my blog from MySpace, which I just did (mostly)! My life also feels like this picture most of the time. Not because I'm able-bodied enough to hitch up an oxbow (or, in this case, yoga strap) and pull several tons of steel, and not because I'm actually doing the preposterous maneuvers in this picture, but because of ME/CFIDS and the fact that most of the time I feel like I'm lying beneath the steel.

Largehearted Boy!




My Book Notes essay on Pathogenesis was just posted at the fabulous literature and music blog Largehearted Boy.
This blog is worth checking out for a lot of reasons -- free music downloads, musicians talking about books, writers talking about music -- but I think the Book Notes column is such a fantastic, original idea. From the blog: "In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that is in some way relevant to their recently published books."

From Largehearted Boy:
"Pathogenesis is ideal poetry for me, powerfully personal and yet global in its implications. A call to arms, these poems follow Munson's battles against the medical community and her own body as she fights Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)."
