Couple cool updates:
1.)  The Missourian, a local newspaper, did a cool student-veteran issue for this year's Memorial Day: http://www.voxmagazine.com/media/multimedia/2011/veterans/mena.html
 
It was my first "real" photo shoot involving professional lighting and backdrops and the likes , and my first time recording audio for other people, which I had to do twice because of technical difficulties, which was interesting because I had to delve into these sensitive issues surrounding Iraq, several times.  But it was a great experience for a great cause.
 
2.)  I had a non-fiction essay accepted for publication next year at Chautaqua, a lit journal out of North Carolina.  This is a huge milestone in my career, because now I'm not just "pigeon-holed" as a poet, I feel like I'm a real writer, and that this memoir project is really possible.  I just have to keep my nose to the grindstone and keep plugging along. 
 
Thanks to everyone for all their support.  I appreciate it so much.  Hope to see you all at the "finish line" someday with a book in hand :)
