scenes from a poetry reading






It's amazing to me to see his whole process. To see all the little slips of paper, random napkins or envelopes, lying around the house on which he'll jot down one or two lines that came to him in the car or some other random time. To see him turn those random lines into a poem. To see him spend free moments, or work into the night after working a "real job" all day, to turn those poems into a book of poetry. To see him sitting up in front of a group of people reading those poems from those books. To see people buying his books. It's amazing to me. And I'm amazingly proud.
It was a good day today.
