I'm sitting in the living room at Spring Street Centre in Seattle, surrounded by poets. If I could be happier, I'm not sure how. This is Day 2 of the 2nd Cascadia Poetry Festival. Here are some pictures from Day 1. There was a reading by several poets, many of whom are published in the Mother Tongue Publishing anthology Force Field. I'm rushing to get this posted before my battery dies on this thing, hence the terseness. More pictures tomorrow!
