Hello from Denver!

I'm going to write this update in bullet points; I'm tired and about to take a nap!

  • Denver, baby! Just wanted to say that.
  • I'm in the Mountain time zone but my body still runs on East Coast time. Ugh. I'm feeling it today.
  • I slept two hours last night, which means I've slept about seven hours in the past three days.
  • Easy flight out. Wrote two poems on the plane, so I'm all caught up with my NaPoWriMo poems.
  • Had a nice lunch with a friend from college. Haven't see much of the city but I really want to take pictures of the beautiful vistas. Will make a point of getting out and surveying the area later this week.
  • This is the set-up day for the conference. Vendor are unpacking their wares for the book fair, which looks massive. I checked in, got my badge and schedule for the sessions. Not much else to report.
  • I hope to get caught up on your blog comments and visiting blogs this weekend.

Tonight, I'm going to the Cave Canem/Kunidman reading. Here's the info. Stop by and listen to some terrific poetry.
