This afternoon

I'm going to a poetry reading by this woman, who is presently teaching a one-week course at Regent College, and has written this poem and this and this.

Catch you later...

**************

The reading was wonderful! She read mostly from her last book, A Deed to the Light, as well as a few new and as yet unpublished poems. I liked the way she introduced each poem telling us the circumstance of its writing, sometimes giving anecdotes about the people in it. The 40-minute reading was over too soon. (And of course I came away with the goods!)



A walk along the beach at Spanish Banks with hubby and a stop at White Spot for a burger on the way home rounded out a perfect afternoon.



TRIPLE O SAUCE. NOW THERE'S SOMETHING TO POEMIFY!
