Happy Thanksgiving! We have each learned a lot this year, and probably found gratitude for some unexpected things. Mac and I send you our best wishes for this holiday season.

What Are You Doing This Saturday?
My good friend, and editor, Professor Peter Hoheisel will be a guest on the radio show, Art Connection of East Texas. Peter is a wonderful poet and writer. He’s a mesmerizing storyteller of a beautiful style of lyrical poetry.
His latest book, South to the Rio Grande carries you on his journey as he moves from Michigan to the East Texas town of Jacksonville. Page after page you make the journey with him. If you are in Tyler, Texas, his book is available at Barnes & Noble in Tyler, Texas, and on Amazon.
You may hear his interview, and a few poems this Saturday morning, Thanksgiving weekend, at 8 a.m. on the radio station Tyler KTBB, 97.5 FM or AM 600. If you are not in the area you may stream it HERE.

A poetry book, by Peter Hoheisel.
This is my copy with my favorite poems tagged.
Here’s the blurb I wrote. It’s featured on the back cover.
“…we weep for what was not, because we think we know what could have been” is a line that stops a soul-searcher—dead. Poetry arrives from heart silence, and it good, moves the reader into contemplative silence. Peter Hoheisel shares his journey with fluid words and such lyrical style that you are carried with him. With this work you can taste the Diet Coke, smell the East Texas Pine, and hear the shuddering explosion of Spaceship Colombia as it leaves seven American heroes scattered over the land. This book engages the reader, delivering a journey worth taking—especially into personal, contemplative silence.
