Unofficial Start to Summer

Memorial Day signifies the unofficial start of summer (summer technically starts sometime in June, right?)

A few pictures to kick it off.

Spring and Travels to Gettysburg

The temps finally rose enough that some outside time with Limonata San Pellegrino was in order. In truth a bit more like summer than spring, but as we bounce around, who knows. Still, seems like a good enough reason to wish everyone Happy Spring, and use this fun sipping lemon I found on one of my outings with Natalie Sypolt. 

I traveled to Gettysburg, PA this week to be the featured reader at the Ragged Edge Coffee shop's First Friday. I love local poetry events, and my hosts, Marty, Jane, Gary (who was a regular until he moved west), and Katy were delightful, as was the whole group in attendance. It's the kind of thing that reminds you that all is alive and well with poetry. 

I tried out some newer poems, and the fun poem composed completely of Prince song titles. Of course purse and outfit matched for the occasion.

Thanks for such a lovely time!

Grier School and Graduation

A BIG THANK YOU to Kara Lawler and the lovely young women at the Grier School for Girls, for an engaging afternoon of poetry and writing discussion in their newly redecorated coffee barn. I forgot to take pictures this go-round, but here is one from a past visit:

It is also graduation weekend at WVU. I just wanted to say congrats to all my students and advisees walking in this weekend's ceremony. Good luck to you all!
