My Block Island reading, rescheduled because of Hurricane Irene, is happening tonight! Hope you can join me.
Soup and Song coffeehouse
Block Island, RI, 7 p.m.
Soup and Song is located in the Harbor Church just up the hill from the Point Judith-Block Island ferry in Old Harbor. Free soup and sandwiches are offered at 6:30 p.m. Coffee and baked goods, also free, are available through the performances. Donations are received which go to the artists. Soup and Song is sponsored by the Block Island Prevention Task Force and Harbor Church.
On Sunday, I've been invited to read a poem or two at the Harbor Church. Admittedly, I'm a little nervous about reading a poem--my or anyone else's--on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. But I am honored to do so.
Bringing the kids with me. They are so excited to go a ferry. Let's see what they say when I tell them there are no McDonald's on the island. No Happy Meals, kids! (Insert evil laugh here.)
TGI Starbucks! Happy to have the day off. And the sun is out, which makes it all the better.
Was invited to submit a batch of poems to the Journal of the Motherhood Initiative. What a terrific publication. Fingers crossed.
There's been lots of activity happening with upcoming readings. I need to update the blog, post new information, make a to-do list. Have not had time to write but planning on doing so, starting today.
Will post pictures from our island getaway!
