Will's most recent book of poems, Unsettled accounts, won the 2009 Hollis Summers Poetry Prize and was published in February of 2010 by Ohio University/Swallow Press. On its basis, he was chosen as a Walter E. Dakin Fellow in Poetry for the 2010 Sewanee Writer's Conference and as 2010 Ohio Poet of the year (selected by the State Library of Ohio). He has previously won an Individual Endowment for the Humanities, most of which have involved translation of various Italian poets. Most recently, this involved translating the sonnets of Sara Coppia Sullam during the NEH Summer Institute of "Venice, The Jews and Italian Culture" in 2006. Subsequent presentations and articles have focused upon the translation of Sullam's sonnets. Other N.E.H experiences included a summer Institute on Literary Translation at the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1988. His previous volume of poems, Conversing with the Light, was chosen by Henry Taylor for the 1987 Anhinga Prize and published by Anhinga press of Tallahassee. He has also translated Umberto Saba's first volume of poems, Trieste and a Lady, and that volume is currently in circulation with publishers. His current poetry manuscript, tentatively, titled Scraps and Damaged Lots, is nearly finished. He serves as Professor of English and Dean of Arts & Sciences at Rhodes State College in Ohio.

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Gratitude—For Each New Morning With its Light

The full moon of Wednesday brings light to Thanksgiving (Thursday) under the Sagittarius Sun and Mercury. Mercury in Sag offers humanity the message (Mercury) of thankfulness and joy (Jupiter). No other sign represents food, music and joy better than Sagittarius (only Pisces, when not in despair). Beginning on Thanksgiving, we can list what we’re grateful for. Then we can continue the list, creating a daily Gratitude Journal. What we are grateful for always increases in our lives. On Thanksgiving Saturn/Neptune square (challenging) is in full effect. This can manifest as traditions not being honored, disappearing, falling away. It can also create a sense of sadness, confusion, of things not working out as planned. It’s best to be as simple as possible. And to focus on gratitude instead. Gratitude is a service to others. It is scientifically and occultly a releasing agent. Releasing us from the past, allowing our future—the new culture and civilization, the new Aquarian laws and principles, the rising light of Aquarius, the Age of Friendship and Equality—to come forth. Gratitude and goodwill create the “thought-form of solution for humanity and the world’s problems.” The hierarchy lays great emphasis upon expressing gratitude. Gratitude illuminates all that is in darkness. Let us be grateful during this season together. Being, for others, the light that illuminates the darkness. A Poem by R.W. Emerson: We are grateful … “For each new morning with its light/For rest and shelter of the night/For health and food/For love and friends/For everything thy goodness sends.” (poem by R.W. Emerson). I am grateful for my family of readers.
