Hometown: Suburb of Chicago
January 12, 2003
Thanks for getting back with me, I'm really excited about this group! I do actually live in Portland, just moved here a month ago! Thanks for giving me a heads up about my outdated profile :) Anyway, I'm excited to join the fun, but wondering if its possible to be late to events... it looks like you all meet up on weeknights, and I work pretty late/commute pretty far... If being late is alright with you and the other poets, let me know, and i'll try and make it to the next meeting!
I would be glad to submit some poems. I have some on word program. Can I have an email to send them to and I can do so as an attatchment.
Thanks for your kind message, I will send you that very soon.
Happy birthday yourself, Shawn! I have his collected poems, so I'm sure it's in there. You're more than welcome to borrow it, if desired. I know you're not able to attend tonight, which is sad, but good luck with your night's work!
Glad I won't miss the first meeting! Looking forward to seeing where the Caravan leads.
Hi Shawn - I thought that image with the bee was really moving, it won't leave my mind. I look forward to the whole poem. I am also very moved by old people, the hidden personal history and wisdom they represent - I have a section with an old lady that just died in my novel "everything" that appears to match the mood of your projected poem. Also, I have to confess that I had not connected you in the meeting with you on this board until just now. :)
