Don’t Think Twice

Not much time for reflection–been zooming around the state, meeting wonderful poets and fans of poetry and readers of poetry and people who are just kind of curious what a Washington State Poet Laureate (and a poem) might look like.  From glorious apples in Chelan and the great fun of being part of a poetry pole celebration in Cle Elum to the honor of reading with Charles Johnson and Bridget Foley at Bedtime Stories, it’s been a busy few weeks.

Coming up next week:  a journey to Mineral, WA (to read with Nicole Hardy), and several events at schools and libraries in surrounding communities!

And how does it feel?  Bob Dylan, Nobel Laureate!  His words have been a part of my life since childhood; I can vividly remember my father singing Dylan songs while strumming his guitar:  a bold and wonderful choice by the Nobel Committee.
