Crossing Lines event

A launch for a new anthology, Crossing Lines, took place on Friday night. But hey, it's been too beautiful a weekend to post any info about it.

The man in the photo is Hal Wake, who did a wonderful job as emcee, while twelve writers read (or sang!) their work from the book. One of the best performances of all came from Vancouver's poet laureate, George McWhirter.

A reading at the Semiahmoo Library

Tonight was a reading by a number of writers who've been working with the library's Writer in Residence, Mansel Robinson. What a treat to hear such a range of styles and genres -- everything from accounts of planes involved in war games, both staged and historic, to a children's story, poems, and a wonderfully gritty presentation for two voices.

Here's a picture of two of tonight's stars -- from left to right, Char and Cristy -- two of the lovely women who were part of the poetry class I led this spring.

Lucky me

What a splendid Mother's Day!

How's this look for a feast? And I didn't have to do anything but lift my fork and knife and enjoy.
