Stone Telling Issue 1 is out!  
EEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Linky:











(...why are you still here?)

Okay mostly I am speechless today (though not squeechless) but I must note that the picture accompanying my poem Nagapadam is of my friend Kalpana Raghuraman, who is an absolutely wonderful dancer. She's also, coincidentally, friends with Mohan and Sangeetha Ayyar, who did the wonderful music (and tech help for the music) on the audio for The Bone Harp Sings Nine Moods. Small world!

I like what you said in your bio about how learning Tamil script, and dreams and magic. (And, of course, loved the poem, the issue, the whole thing :-)

Congratulations!

I just finished reading the entire issue. Though a few of the poems didn't do much for me, I thought the issue as a whole was extremely impressive. The articles were great as well. I can't wait until the next issue comes out.

Yay!

And yeah, poetry is so personal -- I tend to assume that it's never going to be a 100% hit rate for me. Still! Things to enjoy & bend our brains around.

(As it happens this issue of ST is a 100% hit rate for me, and some issues of GF have been too. But that's the exception not the rule).

She is awesome isn't she?

PS I had her dancing in mind when I wrote Bone Harp.

Oh, man. Breathtaking.
