Proud, Prouder and Proudest!

So . . . . pride is often looked upon as a way to catch a first class ticket to the land down under (not Australia:), but I think that I can get away with being proud of . . .

 . . . my baby brother Mario and his amazingly creative and wonderful poetry that is featured in-

"Time You Let Me In: 25 poets under 25" selected by Naomi Shihab Nye!  I am so happy and excited that the world will get to read a part of Mario's poetry, which I have loved and admired for ages.  Naomi Shihab Nye is a well known and liked contemporary poet.  She has collected 25 aspiring poets who she thinks have promise for the rising generation!  How cool is it that Mario is one of those!  Congrats Mario!  I love you and I love your work!  

Go and get yourself a copy today on Amazon or Borders or Barnes and Noble - you will not be disappointed!
