Well, we are taking a school bus down to Intiman Theater in Seattle for the 18th Annual Golden Apple Award Ceremony today. It seems like an appropriate mode of transportation for an award that honors teachers and exceptional school programs! And the Skagit River Poetry Project is honored to be one of the recipients this year. It is pouring down rain and I’m nervous about the dang high heels I’m wearing. I haven’t worn heels since my niece’s wedding three years ago! Won’t do to have a broken leg! Too much to do!

There are lots happening with poetry at the center. Tomorrow, Village Books in Bellingham is hosting a free poetry reading from 7-8:30 with five poets. Should be a an inspiring evening. There is a fund raiser for the Festival after the reading, but I’m told that it’s sold out. YAHOO!

More later.
