Optimistic October

Hello, and happy beautiful fall colors to you!

I have a busy month ahead of me. On October 10th, from 4:00 - 7:30 p.m. I will be at the Ye Olde Bookshoppe in Wenatchee for their weekly open mic poetry session. I will have all 3 of my books available, and would love to sign one for you. There will be others reading their work as well. Come join the fun!


To follow this event, is the official launch of my third book Simplistic Beauty, Japanese PoetryThis will be held at our beautiful local winery Rockwall Cellars, on November 4th. Again, I will have all 3 of my books available to you, but the focus will be on Simplistic Beauty. I will talk a little bit about Japanese poetry, and its structure, as well, as read, and sign for you. Come have a glass of wine and enjoy the culture, and art of poetry.

Did you know that September 15 - October 15, is Hispanic Heritage Month? In honor of this poets.org has showcased a selection of essays and poems, including videos of the first Latino poet laureate of the United States, Juan Felipe Herrera. Beautiful reads.

That's it for now, I hope to see you at both, if not one of my events.

Until next time, grab a book, blanket, and a cup of cocoa and settle in.
