Here are some photos from the reading at Works/San Jose on August 14th. I enjoyed being featured with David Denny. There were lots of poems, a great open mic, yummy munchies and a poetry-loving audience. And we were surrounded by the exhibit Infinite Memes at Works/San Jose. Thanks to Poetry Center San Jose for a fun evening!
I’m looking forward to reading this evening with David Denny at Works/San Jose

I’ve been spending some time during this long weekend reading articles, posts, Tweets and varied forms of artists’ writing about why and how they do what they do.
It has always been interesting to me to read or hear about the process through which individuals come to their art, or through which their art comes to them.
My other weekend activities: long walks, weeding out the things I don’t need or use from closets, drawers, hiding places, etc. and donating them. I”m also furiously writing bits and pieces of anything and everything in my notebook. And I’ve started a list of ideas for future writing.
All of this is providing me with more internal and external space. Aaaaah….
How do you create space for your art? I’d love to hear what works for you.
