Sunday, every Sunday, let's have a community picnic. It's probably been a long week, and it's lovely to have a few minutes to sit back and relax and enjoy some good conversation in a less formal space. Feel free to bring something for the Picnic Basket - a poem you liked this week, a thought you had or something you experienced, or even something completely unrelated to poetry whatsoever that you just feel like sharing. Just take a moment to say hello, and maybe have a bite to eat; no one is going anywhere fast, and the shade promises some relief from the everyday heat. Let’s get to know each other a bit better, here under the branches of the poet’s tree.

(Thing I learned today: To be an archer in the SCA, at least in the East Kingdom, one must simply show up and shoot. A zero score still makes one an archer. I didn't declare any Royal Rounds and thus wasn't officially scored, so I don't know as I'm an archer, but. Next time I think I will.)

Try this ...

Diane Severson Mori interviewed me for Amazing Stories. See Part 1; next week Part 2 will appear. In addition to the text, there are sound files of a couple poems I wrote.
