Cold Fest, February 7
One way to get me out on a cold, snowy night, in a string of cold, snowy days & nights, was to have a party, sponsored by Rootdrinker Institute at the home of Alan Casline & Jennifer Pearce. There were drinks, enough hors d’oeuvres for dinner, & dinner -- & a table full of desserts. Poets galore with a few non-poet spouses dragged along as well.
After dinner we gathered at the fireplace for a poetry “round robin” but first a brief drum circle instigated by drummer Sue Spencer who had accompanied the peripatetic Michael Czarnecki, publisher of Foothills Press, from Western New York State.
A few pictures will have to suffice for the documentation of this event. Thank you Alan & Jennifer, & all the poets who attended & read, for a wonderful evening.
