    I'm excited to meet our international guest from Istanbul tonight. Talked with Craig Czury, who invited Tugrul Tanyol to read at this event, and he will introduce the poet. I hope there will be time for Q&A as well, since there is lots to talk about, with protests in Turkey in the news. I'm thinking of the beautiful architecture in Istanbul, and the way the culture imagines beauty and spirit.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
