One Spring Break Ends, Another Begins

Saturday was a knock out gorgeous day. Perfect for the St. Patrick Day parade in Rochester. There were throngs of glitter o' green people lining up to see all the fanfare.

St. John Fisher will be returning to classes on Monday and SUNY Brockport is off,which means my usual pace will be a bit less. Maybe not. I have residencies in elementary schools all week too. Spring semester is always so busy. But, this work is something I love best to everything.

Susan Deer Cloud will be reading her poetry at St. John Fisher College on March 18, 2009 at 7 p.m. in Golisano Academic Gateway Midlevel. It's free and open to public. Susan's books will be available for purchase and signing. Looking forward to this reading. especially since I've followed her poetry for over 10 years now. It's been nice getting to know her via phone conversations and emails. She's lovely. I'm sure everyone is going to enjoy her reading and class lectures.

The sky looks very blue today too. This must be a streak of good weather. I'm going to get some work done, then go for a long walk. Maybe make a lemon cake today.

I was jealous reading Radish King's (poet/musician Rebecca Loudon's) gardening adventure. I love reading her blog. She loves many of the things I do and she's brutally honest, which I admire. Rebecca, if you're listening, I think you're wonderful and witty and true. I wish it were warm enough here to start turning over the earth. I "think" I can see your landscape, only because I went to PLU for my MFA. But we're starting to plant our seeds and map out our gardens. I like the fresh veggies best. I mean who doesn't like eating the sun. Sun food makes you feel brighter, yes? Hope your garden is a huge success this year.
