I *heart* Dan Savage!
His new YouTube site "It Gets Better" sounds like a much-welcome affirming and encouraging spot for gay youth. (PS: it's true. Being a gay teen sucks. But life does get better! Mos def.)
Dean and I went to the opening night of the Picasso Exhibit at SAM last night. It's a huge show, taking a chronological approach to his work. The early pieces are amazing: you see the genius. He seemed to have become a caricature of himself in middle to late life though (or maybe I was just saturated by the show at that time). I also like the Dora Maar group. Wow.
Great news from a dear poetry friend, that her second book was just accepted. So exciting! More on that later.
