Carolyn Forche reads tonight at Seattle Arts & Lectures. I work late, so will have to scoot on over as soon as I get out of clinic. Maybe stop at Ten Mercer for a bite beforehand. Rebecca: are you going? I just know CF is going to read from some of that 24 page abecedarian from Blue Hour.
Yay Georgetown! Little John, Little Pat, it was like a Waltons episode, wasn't it? And MJ wouldn't take Father Pat's cell call to rub it in. Ahhh.
I am pulling for UCLA to represent.
After several weeks, months, years of hinting that I wanted one, Dean and I finally went out to City People's Garden and got a Star Magnolia. It's only about three feet tall right now, with just a few blossoms, but I am hoping it fills out nicely. I love Star Magnolias. They are often one of the first things to bloom around here. And the white flowers are just breathtaking. Especially amid a dusting of spring snow or frost.
