I spent this evening finding potential magazine homes for two short stories and five poems. It's always a difficult task, metaphorically like finding a couple to adopt your baby. You want them to be accepting, nurturing, and to cherish the beauty in the baby. Tomorrow I'll make my ceremonial visit to the Pacific Beach post office. I'm sending the short story Boxes to the Threepenny Review, the short story Threes to the Idaho Review, the two poems Air Hole and Where We Are to the Crab Orchard Review, and the three poems The Cost of an Electric Toothbrush, Words, and Two Beds to Purdue's Sycamore Review. Let's wish them each luck and a happy journey.
