Countdown time for me

A week from today I will be in Montreal.

As I frantically prepare for the Canada trip and the different presentations I'm doing at two completely separate events (Haiku North America in Ottawa, and World Con in Montreal), I find that my online time is a bit limited right now.

So, I'm unfortunately unable to be as active in the current online discussions about the SFPA as I would like.

I guess what I do want to state, as I did in a comment in my previous post:

"I do not want the SFPA to be an organization for SF poets only. I want it to be a vibrant community of poets who celebrate a combined interest in fantastical poetry of all types, whether it be sf poetry, fantasy poetry, horror poetry, surreal poetry, astronomical haiku, or anything I've neglected to mention that has a speculative bent of any type."

I think discussion is healthy because it means the members care about this organization as much as I do. In the brief bursts of online time I will have in the next few weeks, I will try to check in and see how it's going, and perhaps chime in a bit when I can. However, if I only have time to post a photo or a brief haiku from Canada, please understand.
