Q&A …

… A.M. Juster on Writers Using Twitter and Poetry He's Reading. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Family always came first, public service a close second, and writing, as much as I have loved it, a distant third. I wrote a lot in my head during slow commutes and idiotic mandatory meetings, and sometimes I could put pen to paper in airport terminals and hotel rooms. It’s an increasingly disdained model, but it worked for T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams.
Non-academics shouldn’t be embarrassed about their work—I think their jobs often provide better experience to support good poems than an academic career does.

    Hello, and welcome to our website for the best hand raised macaw parrots for sale.
    We pride ourselves in the best taming practices of macaws among aviaries.
    All of our macaws are bred in a disease-free Biosecure breeding sanctuary.
    They are well socialized, having been raised in our home as members of our
    own family in order for them to become ready to be a member of yours.
    They are quite comfortable around all ages, including the elderly and young children.
    When you purchase a bird from Us, we are committed to offering lifetime support and guidance to you and your family.

    Macaws are playful and active and they have excited personalities to go along with their sizes.
    But this also makes them very challenging pets. They do have the ability to say words and mimic
    our speech but it is not as clear as some other pet bird species.
    Because they are so intelligent, macaws can be trained. You can start when your pet bird is young,
    and work on hand-feeding, teaching your bird to talk or sing, and training your macaw not to nip, bite, or scream.

    1. Are MaCaw parrots Scottish, from what I am accustomed to spell "Macau", or neither?

  2. Trollope wrote in the intervals of a busy career in the Post Office, and such writers as Hawthorne and Ford Madox Ford thought highly of his novels. He was not a poet, but one would expect fiction to require as much concentration as poetry.
