What a fantastic time in Austin with dottirs Heather and Holly, and with favorite po-friends, Hoa Nguyen and Dale Smith and their children, as well as so many good po folk. With Dottirs Heather and then Holly (joining us on the last night, Tuesday)--so much good food, good fun, lots of laughs and good talk about poetry, in shops and in parks, just lots of good times all around. Especially wonderful time at lunch and walking around in the sun of the park area at the Central Market with Hoa and lovely boys, Keaton, Waylon and with Austin artist Phillip Trussell and Sharon Roos, so glad for the warm afternoon sunny vibe!--the big live oak tree, the rock and cement bridgeway, the minnows, the blue sky. Oh, Y'all: many thanks for one of the best days I've ever had. Then, too, for the lovely dinners (Hoa, the food!!--bless you!!) and the long talks about poetry now, and the interaction with such congenial, sharp po folk in Hoa's poetry workshops. Everyone, Thanks so much!!! Y'all, I just want to say this to ya: xoxo--I'm so happy!
