I went about a month without writing a blog post, but there was a good reason. Megan and I got married on October 18th, at a beautiful little ceremony in Malibu. Megan O’Reilly, Rattle‘s assistant editor, is now Megan O’Reilly Green, which makes me smile just to see.
I still feel uncomfortable talking about my personal life in this space, and I haven’t decided whether or not I should make an effort to get over it, or keep this blog more professional. But I’ll dip in a toe to test the water, by posting a few pictures from the wedding. Let me know if you want to see more of this kind of thing — do you care about the life of a poetry editor, or should I just stick to the poetry? I can’t help but wonder why you’d care about us. But I suppose that’s the nature of the new century.
Anyway, we’re married now, after almost 5 years together, and happy for good. Here are some photographs (by the amazing, John Li):
