I have so much to post today that I've had to make two separate posts. (See below.) I'm still left with two unrelated topics, so I did what I could with a subject yoking the two. Poor young writers---I don't mean to cast aspersions on your wonderful selves.
On Wednesday, my lovely friend Jeffery Beam and I took our duet act on the road again. He reads his poems to creative writing classes, I make drawings. This time we went to the Duke Young Writers' Camp, where he performed in his usual vivid and engaging way. Also this week, I finished another water and rocks painting.
