...is something I love to do. Today H and I had coffee while we listened to Zachariah Wells read "Overhead Crane," a poem by Peter Trower. I knew H would love the poem. According to Zach's post, he came across Trower in an anthology called Going for Coffee, edited by Tom Wayman. H and I first encountered Wayman back in 2003 at the first Talking Fresh. Wayman gave a great reading. Moving and funny. H laughed and laughed. The next day I attended an excellent workshop by Tom Wayman called "Protest Poetry: Its Cause and Cure." There I met Rhett for the first time. Anyhow, on Thursday March 1, 2007, the day of Zach's post, I met Rob, a blogger, writer and friend of Rhett's, for the first time. Tracy and I met him for coffee. There I mentioned meeting Rhett at Wayman's workshop. After I got back, I checked Zach's blog and saw the post. It's funny how things go.
Speaking of Talking Fresh, it's coming right up! I hope to see you there. I've been to every Talking Fresh and they've all been great. I hope the weather cooperates. I spent over 10 hours on the bus yesterday. The roads were horribly icy in places. I'm sure the other passengers were glad to finally be rid of me and my eeks.
