  1. Welcome to my side of the country. I’ll be out of town, sadly, and won’t be able to attend, but do enjoy Victoria. Look for killer whales!

  2. Quite an inspiring experience, to hear “Incessant Barking” live, with all the layers of mastery coming to life: the humor, resonance of story cycles, range of diction. Thanks for making the journey, and sharing your art and personable self. 🙂
