A week in bliss, with three incredible masters and teachers of poetry. Aaahhh. This Friday I embark on my 2013 journey to San Francisco and points south, to study for another week, in paradise. My teachers this year are Ellen Bass and Dorianne Laux, and Joe Millar. I am nervous, but more excited than anything else. I will see some dear friends, and spend time in a city I revere, and with a little grace, and help from friends, and the bowl of nirvana enveloping us, some writing will emerge. Happy week to you all, and HUMP it up!  ]]>
