Today we wrap up another poetry workshop at The Barn. As always happens the poets who came here to meet and work together and share their work formed a bond that undoubtedly will last. Laying bare one’s personal hopes and dreams is not an easy thing to do. Reading one’s poetry before a group of strangers takes courage. Those of you who have attended workshops know this well.
I’m impressed, not only by the people who participated in this year’s event but by the Highlights Foundation folks who make each workshop seem so natural and inviting. My thanks to everyone.
I’ve read a lot of good poems over the past few days. Made new friends, visited old ones. I leave with a full heart and several pounds of satisfaction.
