Shamefully, I realized that I have no updated this blog since May! And worse yet, the last time I updated it, I was asking for funds to help me get to the Lambda Literary Writers Retreat. Well, thanks to everyone's generosity, I made my funding goal and also some extra to help with travel expenses. I am thoroughly excited to head to Los Angeles at the end of the month and work with other writers from across the U.S., Canada, and the UK.
I find myself back in Bellingham, WA where this blog started so many years ago. My life is nothing bus cyclical.
Last night I read at Poetry Night. It is the first time I have read any poems publicly since my thesis defense way back in March. It was good to be among people who love writing, reading, and listening to poetry and spoken word. I look forward to attending again.
I don't have too much to add to the poetry news of the world tonight, but I wanted to let you know that I was still out there, writing and reading, and thinking of all of you.
