Egrets Reading

Destination: San Diego

I'm taking a weekend away just for poetry.

On Friday night, I'm planning to dine with haiku poet Naia and on Saturday, I'm attending the San Diego Bird Fest.

Why a birdfest? How does this relate to poetry?

I've decided I really need to learn the names of things in the natural world in order to write about them better. I'm starting with birds.

On Saturday night, I'm having dinner with poet Billie Dee.

On Sunday, there's the scifaiku jam at Rebecca's cafe, where I will be joined by poets Terrie Relf, Billie Dee, and Scott Virtes. During the day on Sunday, I'm going to play tourist and see if something inspires me.
