are not going to AWP in atlanta. we've decided. we are a little sad, but, really... we need to save money to move away & i've had to fly too many times this year [ruining all the work i've been doing on my ecological footprint reduction]....

& so we've opted out. & hope all those that we made consider the idea, still consider the idea.

but, hey... we'll probably be living closer to all the people we've yet to meet but somehow know very soon. like. in june.

back from MN but uninterested in the Blog world at this time.

i can tell you that i did, in fact, vote Green. & this is because when i tried to vote Democrat, & i tried really hard, & i even did in a few instances [Diane!]... i felt a wave a disgust overcome my entire body & just couldn't bring myself to do it.

i believe that one day there will be a Green Party candidate that can win everyone over. the Dems are too much like the Reps...

i am disappointed that the new energy bill didn't pass... i don't know WHY but maybe the news can explain it to me.

i find the discussion over at philly sound to be enlightening & a signal of how divided our country has become. it is inevitable. the democrats are not the same democrats they were 15 years ago. the world has changed. & yes, i'm happier w/ a balance of power.

but i still believe in voting Green if that's what you truly want.

just in case you were wondering.

i just did.

& i think you should vote for the people you believe in.

as far as the props, though...

please remember that you get to vote on Abortion Rights [another BS Parental Notification law], New Energy possibilities, &, in SF, whether or not we should Impeach Bush & Cheney.

those are the most important ones to me. although, others are important.

so even if you hate everyone running, or can't tell the difference between them, realize that there are important measures remaining to vote on & go vote!


another strange google search

spt last night & after

a real shame that there was such low attendance for Prageeta Sharma & Douglas Kearney last night. it was a really great reading. lots of good energy & thoughts provoked. where were you all?


i am sad to report that this is what i heard from a brand new Poet at San Francisco State University last night:

that he wanted to work more with multimedia poetry & didn't feel like the environment at State would be very receptive to this work. that SFSU is more "mainstream poetry" and all the experimental folks are few & far between.


seeing as how i just graduated last May from SFSU i find this to be not only BAFFLING but absolutely TRAGIC. i tried to explain that we USED to be very receptive to such work... that most of my peers from SFSU have at least dabbled in multimedia work... & then he was surprised.

the end of an era?

what are all the left-over "experimental" writers at state doing? is Bob Gluck teaching 8 classes a semester now? do they all need to transfer to Bard in order to meet & have a community? are Stacy & Chet ever coming back?

is this even true or just one person's experience?

was this a purposeful move on the part of the CW Dept????

whatever the case... it is truly heartbreaking & infuriating to hear.


my grandmother died & now i am going back to MN next week.


i really did fall off my bike going Green & am pretty well bruised. [Green bruises, though.]
