Before now poetry has taken notice
Of wars, and what are wars but politics
Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
from "Build Soil"

New News

For those of you who didn't hear it on the radio:

I am going back.

I am not going back with the Army, this time, though that may still occur at some point in the future. I am going back of my own free will- I am becoming a participant in this great experiment of independent, citizen journalism. I am going back to Iraq as a photojournalist, accredited by the recently developed Public Multimedia, Inc.

If you would like to donate towards the purchase of equipment for my trip and receive some return on your investment (besides quality journalism, of course!), there is a new photo album up. Viewing is free- the photos are also available for purchase as high-quality prints. All proceeds will go directly to benefit citizen journalism.

It's too soon yet to talk about where I'm headed and when- I'll fill in those details once we're done working out paperwork and red tape and I actually head for the sandbox again.

    It will be wonderful to have your voice back from Iraq, but I am awed at the sacrifice that you and your family are making.

    May you have a good and productive term in Iraq, and a safe and happy return!
