I've Landed!

In San Francisco, a brief stop off before Hawaii. Ah, this is the life.

Oh. And now. I'm one year older.

Unveiling of Sonny & Gwen Tonight at Pete's Candy Store

(pic was here)

Apparently, this show is not top secret any more. It's our first official gig as just the two of us (Mark Evces & I) and well, we're just going to have a lot of fun.

Learn more about Mark (who is Jennifer L. Knox's cousin) as she blogs this week for Best American Poetry.

For Pete's Sake

That was fun. Thanks to all who came out. It was nice to be back at the old stomping grounds. Melissa and Rebecca read beautiful poems and Sommer in the loveliest host. I read a poem that I had never read aloud, in fact, I had never even shown it to anyone. So, that was interesting. Great crowd. Wow, even in a snow storm. Beautiful.

The kind of night that happens once every four years.

I'll be back at Pete's soon making some music with a friend, but I think for now, that's top secret.

So don't tell anyone.
