Late this afternoon, two friends from my haiku group (Wendy and Janis) and I are driving up to San Jose for the Yuki Teikei Tea House Reading. Jerry Ball, who founded our group, is one of the featured three readers.
Wendy and I went last year and had such a good time that we wanted to go again.
It takes about 5-6 hours to drive to San Jose. I'm bringing a lumbar cushion for my back. I'm looking at it as a sort of test case to see if I'm really up to driving to Yellowstone next month.
