Q: What is one of your favorite hobbies?
A: Oh, well that’s an easy one. I love to golf – if you can call it that – and every summer, we have the Author Open, or the Poet Pro-Am, I guess, with Thom Thammaro and Mark Vinz and Terry Rude, all of the English department, and then me. Although they can kick my butt in poetry, I can hold my own on the course. It’s great fun, and I think it’s really surreal to know that I go home, and I have their books on my shelves. I read them, truly love them and admire what they do as poets. They’re just great, great people. To sit in the golf cart just talking – it’s just the best. I play guitar a lot, so that’s my other one. I’m big into music. My buddy and I play a lot of music together. It’s been awhile since we’ve done live shows, but we still get together and think we’re rock stars. Read the rest of this entry →
