Kibbles and Bits

Happy Fathers' Day, dad! Love you.


What pops up in rotation on iTunes? John Mayer's "Daughters." Seems appropriate for Fathers' Day.


Now that kids are out of school, we've been busy with lots of year-end parties and play dates. I'm at Starbucks for a few hours while the kids are hanging out with friends. Happy for a low-key day. Happy to read a little, write a little.


I have been thinking for a while that I need to get away to a writers' retreat or artists' colony. Would like to go for a week, but a weekend in the summer will do. Any suggestions on an East Coast retreat that doesn't have a big application process? I'm looking for someplace I can go on short notice. Would like some interaction with other writers, but not complete isolation.

Also, are there any kid-friendly writers' retreats? This has come up again and again in conversation with other poet moms. Does such a place exist?


Just found out that Rodney King died this morning. So much pain in his life. Hope he's at peace now.


Now playing on iPod: Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)."
