Two nights at Cottage Bistro this week for poetry. Mmm. Terrific way to finish National Poetry Month. The other night, it was 8 area poets for the Vancouver Literary Press Group NPM readings, and tonight, the Brick Books spring launch line-up, with Arleen Paré, Jane Munro, Joanna Lilley & Karen Enns. Good also to catch up with the fabulous Kitty Lewis, whom I’ve known since before I published my first Brick book in I think ’91. Thanks, peeps, for writing (and reading) so very well. We can all go to sleep tonight knowing that many things, indeed, are right with the world.
