Congratulations to all who played Market Street with us this morning! What a lovely day and what lovely music! It wasn’t too hot nor too windy. Everyone did a great job, and it’s so nice to see a big group of younger players in the Group Violins. If you have pictures, send them to us so we can post a few here.
I am a poet, translator, and professor of literature and creative writing at Mississippi University for Women, where I direct the Low-Res MFA in Creative Writing, the undergraduate concentration in creative writing, and the Eudora Welty Writers' Symposium. I have published three books of poetry, Barrier Island Suite, Time Capsules, and Landscapes and Architectures, as well as a collection of translations of the Belgian poet Paul Snoek, Hercules, Richelieu, and Nostradamus. I live in Columbus with my wife, Kim Whitehead; son, Aidan; and dog, Aleida.
