Janan Platt's Birdhouse Visit

Janan Platt spent the summer daydreaming about the moon.

She finds herself driving the car or taking aerobics classes just to listen to music. She never craves a particular food and has no pets.

In another life she earned a painfully conservative degree in accounting from Chico State, worked in the performing arts center taping concerts, took ballet lessons in the basement from Harold Lang and moonlit in a computer sales store.

She's worked for human and animal rights organizations, an interior plant maintenance shop and a failed savings and loan.

Best off-hand description: "You know, everything's a wonder to Janan."

She's hosted the AlienFlower poetry workshop since June, 1995 - a collaborative Web site where poetry lovers practice poetry.
