Jorie Graham: Selected Poems | 92Y Readings

Your rainbow is intensely shaded indigo, blue, and violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate cities, technology, and other great things people have created. Friends count on you for being honest and insightful. You share hobbies with friends and like trying to fit into their routines.

Singing Nurses of Harborview

This is a post from 2008 upon which I apparently never pushed the "publish" button!  Who are these women? Nurses!!!  Nurses rock.  They do what needs to be done!

Low News Day

I swear I wrote a post yesterday on the Blogger app on my iPhone but it did not show up here.  I guess not everything works.  I'm having a great time here in Texas.  I visited with my cousins, aunts, uncles, and others at the family July 4th gathering.  It was fun, and quite amazing to be with people who have known me for 57 years, through all my phases, changes, trials, tribulations, successes.  It's mind boggling to think about.

Interesting thing today is Nona Faustine.  Check it out.

How Writers Write Fiction 2014

I was working too much to do this program, but plan to go through it once the course is archived.

Modern Poetry (ENGL 310) with Langdon Hammer

What have I been up to?  I've been watching these poetry classes from Yale Open Course. They are so meaty that I can watch them over and over and pick up something new every time.  I've never actually studied poetry, so it has been a real treat.  I stream these videos on my laptop (macbook pro) and use Google Chrome to get them up on the the TV.  I bought myself a SmartTV for an early birthday present and should check and see if I can get right to YouTube from there.  I love this guy Hammer!  There are lots of videos in this class.  The handouts and whatever the class is seeing on the overhead is not available which is annoying but probably has to do with copyright.
