  1. Don,
    So nice of you to mention me in your blog. Looking forward to Sunday at WordSpace. I'be been working on a play for w-a-y too long and am finally presenting the first ten minutes of it with me, Brenda, and actor Chris Young doing the reading. I notice you're a poet. I was just in Minnesota in early August and passed out flyers at the National Poetry Slam for a storytelling show I produced in Mpls. The poets I heard in the parks were great - tons of spoken word of many stripes and styles.
