Nine days until Halloween! I'm taking Max to find a costume today. He wants to be Elvis this year.
Tuesday I think Daneen and I are going to see Barbara Ras read at PSU. But the Poetry Bus is in town, and Richard Ford is reading at Powell's. I like Richard Ford, and I'm looking forward to reading his new novel. I did see him read once many years ago, with Tobias Wolff. But I think I will probably go see Barbara Ras. Although I'd like to hear Joshua Beckman and Christian Hawkey. It's a tough call.
I am grading Marylhurst papers this weekend. I still have those bulbs to plant.
