Tip of the Quill: A Journal
Bear with me — life is nuts.

This last week has been, and the next week will be, absolutely and utterly insane. Today, for instance, I’m driving from Chicago to New York, and then from New York to Boston on Monday. There’s an open house at a grad school program I really like up there, and things have worked out so that I can spend my birthday with three of my closest family – my folks and one of my oldest, dearest friends. Also, in a bizarre twist of fate, this will be the second year in a row that I’ll be spending my birthday in New York City. The world, it conspires against me sometimes.
I have all sorts of things in the queue, all in various stages of launch. For instance, I’ve been reworking the ‘poetry’ section of geoffreylong.com to reflect two new ideas, include seven or more new poems, and include mp3s of me reading each poem. I’m also updating the site to include my involvement with Tohubohu and CollaborationTown, and two new concept essays. Parts of this are live (updated ‘about’ section, concept essays, a handful of poems), and all of it should be ready to roll sometime this week, as well as a couple of sizable client projects. Right now, though, I have to hit the highway. Wish me luck!
