Tomorrow the madness begins--Associated Writing Programs convenes in Denver. Given the size of this monster meeting, I expect to be first thrilled to hear such folks as Gary Snyder, Ann Waldman, Diane Wakoski, Terry Tempest Williams, etc. I expect to read at one of the off-site readings, maybe sign a few books, and drink a gallon of coffee over the next four days. It all begins when I pick up my publisher at the airport. I expect by Saturday night to be spent, wiped out, my house cluttered with the flotsam and jetsam of whatever washes up on the shore of the week. I'll be back here, what's left of me, next week. Till then, keep on keeping on.
