A gap in The House of Words + Travels

North Carolina Arboretum
April 23, 2011
I've had a little difficulty with managing out-of-town wireless, family events, and the need to be off for further adventures, so I am going to take a break in The House of Words. I am sorry to break in the middle of Dave Bonta's interesting responses and hope he will forgive me when I meet him on the 3rd of May! 

Tomorrow I will be off to Wales via Asheville, Atlanta, Paris, and Birmingham, and I have a dire need right now to work on publicity for events on the 12th  (City Lights, Sylva, North Carolina) and 26th (The Green Toad, Oneonta, New York.)

Thanks for understanding, and we'll have more of The House of Words after Wales! In the meantime, adventure is singing her siren song...

  4. Hannah and marja-leena--

    Thank you for the good travel-wishes!

    Susanna,

    That is indeed a thought, but no, alas, I am not going to be in Alabama any time soon. But I could, some day when I am in western North Carolina, and perhaps I shall.

    I am going to fly to Birmingham, England, and then I am taking the train to Aberystwyth, Wales. I'll post something more then!

  6. Have a wonderful trip! Just now, I'm wishing I could crawl into your suitcase and go along. Perhaps virtually? In spirit, anyhow.

  8. Thanks, everybody--

    Hugs have been given, pictures and walks taken, etc. Have some images of the show in process that will be very interesting I hope. I would post them now except that I only took along an iPad...

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
