Fans vs Friends

It’s puzzling to me how many poets I’ve met and even publicized (gratis) over the years, who can’t understand my efforts to build friendship and community. By their actions, these poets seem to regard me as some nameless, faceless fan. I’m disappointed by these buffoons. Worse, they make me cynical—always deadly for a poet. When I’ve found poets who know that poetry is not just about articulating surprising connections between people and things, but connecting in camaraderie with other artists, I feel deeply grateful. I feel my innocence returning, and inspiration is not far behind.

Oh hai! The awesome world of science just got a whole lot cuter. Biologist and blogger Sofía Gabriela recently shared this outrageously cute photo of a newly discovered species of velvet worm that scientists have named Eoperipatus totoro because of its delightful resemblance to the Catbus in My Neighbor Totoro.

It makes sense that the boneless Catbus would actually be an invertebrate.
