Itinerary, wildlife, and wild life

This will probably be a short post, followed by a couple of days of being offline.

I’m off to Seaside tomorrow for the winter MFA residency. I graduated in June, but I’ve been lucky enough to be invited back as a guest emcee for the evening readings.

Today’s workshop and reading with Lawson Inada were terrific. Got the start, I think, of another Big Elk poem. It’s been a rather good week with the wildlife here. Brenda and I saw a very large bald eagle, the winter wrens have been hopping up on the porch in the mornings to play and talk with me, and our varied thrush flock has multiplied into about a dozen or so. Tonight there were three deer in the orchard again.

At any rate, I’m starting to get in the pensee poetique frame of mind, so going off to hang with a bunch of writers for a couple of days sounds terrific.

Catch you Wednesday evening.
