Poetry Friday

Last Friday was a complete blur! As part of Babson's inauguration, I was honored to read a poem of my choosing, Mary Oliver's "Sunrise."






That's new president Len Schlesinger and Jack Welsh, former CEO of General Electric Company.
As if the day couldn't get any better, I was accompanied to inauguration by Joseph Legaspi made it up from NYC. Coincidental, he had a reading in Boston and was able to join me for the big event.

Here he is, reading at the Fresh Press Cafe in Brighton, as a part of Boston College's Filipino American Writers’ Night.

Also reading was Sarah Gambito, pictured below, along with Bino Realuyo and Lara Stapleton.

Even I had a chance to read two of my own poems at the open mic--icing on my very, big cake.

Ananda, you've been busy doing a few things, too, I'm sure. I've been MIA as well but I should be more active in the blogosphere starting today!
