  1. Congratulations, Joel! Catapult is lucky to have that poem—a beautiful piece. I wonder if anyone’s ever done an anthology of poems about mirrors….? Yours would be in it!

  2. Thanks, Joe! I appreciate your help and guidance–I guess it was only last year that I worked on my capstone…seems like ages.

  3. Congratulations! Like Joe said, “Catapult is lucky to have that poem,” and it IS one of my favorites from your chapbook. I had favorites that made me smile, cry, or marvel at the beauty and/or truth your words created. “Poolside” made me cry last year and brought tears again this year. It generates an accurate, fascinating picture of your growth in stature and in wisdom – those boys in the mirror are all still there looking right back at you! May you always find time to write…

  4. Joe–Yes, I’m still writing as much as I can. John, Rachel, and I still get together every month to workshop so that really helps. I’m submitting quite a bit, and getting rejected quite a bit. Part of the process eh? Our baby boy is due any day now so we’ll see what kind of whacked out sleep-deprived stuff I can come up with next!

    Mom–the more you can babysit the more I can write! 🙂

  5. congrats Joel! Like your mom said those boys are still there, looking back at you! I hope they will always be a part of you, one that you remember and access as your boys grow up. You may even see more reflections of those boys as you watch/help and guide your boys.
