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)."
