Weekend in South Bend

I am thankful for the people I spent time with last weekend. I know that it is cheesy to suddenly be a thankful person before Thanksgiving, but I would just like to say 'thank you' to Charmi and her husband who welcomed me into their house and fed me very well. It was my very first experience sleeping with their daughter's big turtles. They watched me until I felt sleep. Then I had a wonderful breakfast with POETS! I am really looking forward to seeing Amy & Ryan's own online poetry magazine. I can clearly see that they are going to be great editors. And of course, thank you to DDL, who read a poem with me and was always a great mentor for my poetic experiences. The reading at the Fiddler's Hearth was full of energy. Clayton was a great producer and he gave me an opportunity to read again about 30 poems in May, 2012. I loved the performance of the featured reader, Alessandra Simmons. I hope I can meet her again sometime!

I was really thankful that my hubby's mother was waiting for me with dinner! I was pretty hungry after the poetry reading and the long driving back home.
