I went to see Julia Butterfly Hill today at the Watershed Environmental Poetry Festival. Not too crowded. Good weather. Some very moving poetry.

Poetry is usually lost on me. I cannot write, as one non-poet stated about himself today, "..with brevity." He made the observation that poets are able to say with very few words volumes of expressions and emotions. Being brief is not usually how I write. Time to practice maybe, before I bore you readers to death with my poor spelling, run on sentences, and the dreaded sentence fragments.

After the Poetry Festival, I talked briefly with her, bearing in mind she sees hundreds of people and that she is a person, not an event to be mobbed. Maybe I take 'personal space' too seriously? Or maybe I am aware that I have very 'loose bounderies'. And/or that anything can be over analyzed. Not to lose the point, of course, that today was good, real GOOD. Could have been better, but...

Otherwise, I got some good email today. Had a reasonable time at work last night and tonight should be OK, I hope. Well, I have to go to sleep now sometime or another.
