I am pleased to be able to let you all know some truly capital-albeit-personal news–I have just published my first poem in the online MADISON REVIEW. The poem is one I wrote this spring, titled “‘Oh, Mrs. Miller!'”. This is my first time in the pages of Madison Review, and, to celebrate, I am sharing the link above and below some photos taken during about a year and a half ago, on my last trip to Wisconsin’s capitol city, home of my alma mater, the University of Wisconsin. On that trip, I made my first climb to the ‘dome walk’ around the top of the Capitol Building, and I even got a distance shot of the Helen C. White English Department windows, where I spent many happy hours–and participated in my first public reading. (I can still recall how my heart raced!)
This is the view of State Street, looking west to the University.
The long, flat pale building with oblong dark windows, near the lake shore, is Helen C. White. Below are a few other images from inside and outside the Capitol.
