Yay Helio! I think the best dancer/entertainer won.


I had a great time reading at Highline yesterday. A fairly large number of students showed up (I think there may have been some "extra credit" involved? *wink*). But they really seemed to get into the reading. I called it my "poetry-prose sandwich." I read a few poems, then a short story, then a few more poems. The short story seemed so long! It was only 6 pages, but compared to reading poems, it seemed endless, a marathon. But the few people I talked to said it was good, didn't seem overly long at all.


Looking forward to a week off next week. We're gonna get away to someplace sunny. Like this:

Er, is that Cancun? I'm not much of a traveler, but I've been there.

Pamela: Yes. I've never been, and I can hardly wait! Any recommendations?

We're definitely going to try to see Chichen Itza and Tulum.

Those are my recommendations. It's been so long since I've been there that I'm sure the restaurants and hotels have been blown down by hurricanes and rebuilt--probably twice. I loved the beaches and the blue blue water. Even though I am usually pale as Casper, I tanned very fast there. Take your sunblock.

Also, don't eat the lettuce. I've been to Mexico multiple times and even have drunk the water--with tequila as sterilizer--but the lettuce is where the bugs are (both kinds of bugs).

Let me know what you think about the ruins. That would be a shape poem opportunity for sure.
