Imagine my shock when I picked up a copy of the Star Tribune in the teacher's lounge to see a photograph of my friend (and bridesmaid!) peer up at me. Tell us, Chris, "Why are the bees disappearing?"

Bees, among other insects (and other flying things--birds, mostly), have been cropping up in my poetry (Chris and her dynamic personality often crop up in my work, whether she likes it or not--hope she doesn't mind so much!) and have been a topic of major national discussion as well.

Congratulations, Chris, for appearing on the front page of the newspaper! What a great experience for you, so thrilling. I am going to frame my copy. :)
