One-year anniversary

Rowers in an eight.One year ago today was the official launch of Into the Rumored Spring. What a wonderful afternoon at Open Books! The store was packed–and so many thanks to everyone who came. John Burgess read his Graffito poems. Raul Sanchez read Spanish translations of some of John’s poems. Jed Myers played a musical accompaniment. And I read from Into the Rumored Spring, started to share that story–cancer, survival, thriving, my gift to a friend.

Thanks to the sales of Into the Rumored Spring, I’ve written checks for $500 to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (and another $108 , or more, added at the end of this quarter).

And as I’ve shared this story, other people have shared their stories with me. I deeply appreciate their stories and their willingness to share them. They inspire me.

So here’s to another year!
