A Quickie

I'm playing catch-up this weekend. It's a flat-out battle between resting and getting organized for the week. I'm never sure if it's better to focus on one task until it's completed, or to spend about an hour on each big task to keep the trains on track.


Yesterday, I was part of the 100 Thousand Poets for Change reading. I heard that we were simulcast worldwide sometime between 1:30 and 2:30. It was possibly the largest single poetry event in the world. We had a nice turnout. Special thanks to R. Jefferys for putting it together. It was a lot of fun and I was honored to be a part of the reading. The readings will be archived at Stanford University.

Wonder if anyone heard our event on simulcast.


Looking forward to tomorrow night's Improbable Places Poetry reading.

Monday, Oct. 1, 7 – 9 pm
Wayne’s World of Automotive Services

126 Park Street, Beverly

The cars might be up on the lift, but the humming engine will come from the poets. A Pinto persona poem, an ode to an mechanic, hydraulic suspension or safety child locks – all makes and models welcome. Think of words as vehicles and poems as spark plugs.

Poets, start your engines!


Good lord, it's almost October. Time waits for no one.

Hey Jan,
Kelli and I read at the Seattle 100K Poets for Change event and our Improbable Places Poetry Tour + 1 is happening this coming Saturday evening. We're reading at a local hotel in our pajamas! I hope we'll make Colleen and you all proud! See you in March!
