Slowly but surely getting there

Hi everyone,

Another week has flown by. I’m down to the last two poems in the first two quarters of a school year for “the project.” When I finish early next week, I’d like to take a few days off before tackling quarters three and four. That will give me a little time to push forward on a trade book I have in mind. I can’t pull off for long though. This first half has 30 poems in it; the second, 45. I’ll need to review the work-days I can count on between now and November 15 and judge from that.

Next week, on September 1, I’ll have a lot of fun presenting a program at Springfield’s main library, The Library Center, at 7:00 p.m.. To help me talk about THE DIRT BOOK and the importance of dirt, representatives from the Nature Center and Dickerson Park Zoo will bring some live animals to show the kids in the audience. Some of the exhibits are in my book. Additionally, the well-known folk singer Judy Domeny will perform songs based on poems in the book. I can’t wait to hear her.

  1. You, my former student, current goat-farmer, and always fine singer Judy Domeny Bowen, and the Springfield Library — a gathering of my favorites!. My heart is with you!

    • Thank you, Sandy. I wish you could be here. We always have a good time doing these library programs so I hope we have a good turnout. Attendance can be uncertain these days as we all know.

  2. This event will be awesome! I wish I could be there for the fun, cuz! Animals, songs and poems, oh my! I love this!
