My book came yesterday. I'm proud to be in it with you, Nancy, along with some other fine writers. Such a good cause too.

It's good to hear from you Karen. I agree it is for a good cause and I hope many readers will buy and help the ongoing relief effort in Japan. At first, my poem was accepted by Pirene's Fountain on line, but when I realized that there was a forthcoming anthology to aid in the recovery effort for the earthquake and Tsunami victims in Japan, I asked if I could switch my poem. I've been a poet who insists on getting at least one free copy of the book that takes my poem, but this time my old heart melted and I have a strong understanding of how we are all connected. We are literally here to help those who need our help. I hope we can get together with Janice and Maren and celebrate the anthology to hopefully get some more copies sold to help in the recovery effort.
