My Blue Muse


December 2003          

Message from PJ:
"Whew! What a year! Very loud on the physical plane, very quiet on the spiritual one, where all creativity springs from. I won't go into particulars, but two surgeries later and I'm finally on the mend. I "hear" poetry in my head once in awhile and jot what I hear down, but it's not very good. It gives me faith, though, that my creativity is just dormant for now, while I focus on healing. That said, I've been submitting my stuff everywhere and hope to cull a few credits, or at least one or two. Editors are tough nuts. There is so much work out there. I had one day of sifting through incoming subs and it was very eye-opening. Alas, I hope to maintain and even expand this website this year, so keep an eye out."

Big news! P. J.'s recent poem in The DMQ Review won their Muses Award. This prize is for the best poem of the year to first appear in The DMQ Review. In addition DMQ nominated this poem for a Pushcart Prize. Double whammy! Of course, P. J. is thrilled by both the prize and nomination and thanks DMQ for their support.
