Pictures Now, Words Later

38 degrees with fog, a dreary mist all day

Exhaustion are a FEW of the many photos.  The narrative will arrive later.  I saw several great panels about creating literary community at a community college, so I'm super psyched to bring those ideas back to my peers.  Also, got to catch up with lots and lots of folks within the poetry world.

Jim May & Chelsea Rathburn (Chelsea, fellow U of A grad)

I'm actually excited to hear about building a literary community at a community college. It would be great if you could write a post about this (in all your free time) when you get back!

Looks like a spectacular time! Can't wait to read about the adventures.

Exhaustion won out for me too, this year, I posted less because I was just too tired. Wonder what that was about. Of course, I was also sharing the netbook with my husband, who was also blogging. Next year I'm gonna suggest we each bring computers.

Still it was a great conference!

Stephanie, I was jealous of all the mated pairs of writers as I was missing my husband dearly. Now, I see the shared computer could be a downside...still I think y'all win!

Hope to see you soon. I'm trying to make some of the readings at UCA and Hendrix this semester, but so far the weather is not encouraging.
