With April just around the corner, National Poetry Month is upon us. I will be posting selections from writers I have been influenced by over the years, including John Haines of course, to this blog and over at Stone Path Review. If anyone has suggested writers and personal favorites please share here as I would love to expand my library and keep poetry alive and relevant.
“Slant, Wichita’s new art and culture magazine, is here! I have 100 copies, and the rest will be delivered Monday or Tuesday. I will be talking with different businesses as to where it will be sold, and will let you know when it is on the newsstands (hopefully Watermark, Barnes & Noble, etc.) The magazine will retail for $7.99 and will be published twice per year. If you live out of town and would like a copy, send me a message, and I will mail one to you for $10. Thank you for your support–I am proud of this magazine and hope it is something the community will embrace…”
The following newsletter was sent out today regarding Stone Path Review, our artistic journal and our publishing company, Enso Press, LLC.
As we close out 2014 having completed our 3rd year with 12 issues, we have been looking back and of course looking forward. After hard and honest thinking about Stone Path Review specifically and in general the Enso Press, LLC business, we have decided to not publish the quarterly journal in 2015. The time and dedication it requires and deserves to craft a quarterly journal is becoming a bit much, and we would like to step back and refocus our creativity.
The Stone Path Review website will remain and be active as new artwork will be posted there from time to time. We will still conduct interviews that are important and timely, but the quarterly journal will be on-hold.
For Enso Press, LLC, the other projects will keep moving forward as more time will be dedicated to them. This includes film production (Around Here) and collections of poetry (Beyond the Border Kingdom, Students Guide to Zen) among other things we have under wraps.
Additionally the better half of Stone Path Review, Patricia, will be concentrating on her studio and photography. News and exciting updates will be posted to http://www.twistedrootstudios.com
To the artists who have trusted your work with us, we cannot thank you enough. You are why we started Stone Path Review in the first place, and have made the past 3-years a memorable journey and an experience we will take with to our next projects.
We have quite a few open submissions and I will be gracefully rejecting them with a summary of the above and our gratitude.
Future updates and communications will also come through this newsletter as well as the Stone Path Review website and our Facebook page. All links are included below.

I am reposting this with additional information from Culture.pl, the online magazine promoting Polish Culture abroad, run by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and funded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland. They have a more complete bio and information about Polish artist Zdzisław Beksiński.
Please visit their website and learn more about Polish culture and the arts.
Some of the recent music I downloaded. The latest Deadmau5 is quite the departure from previous in your face electronic with fast, changing, heavy beats. This one is more relaxed and smooth with deep textures.
Startle the Heavens, aka Ben Leopard, continues to make sweeping music that immerses the listener in vibrant landscapes. He is also providing the soundtrack for the upcoming film “Around Here“.
