Holy cow, where has the summer gone to? Seems like Memorial Day was just a couple days ago.
Wanna know what I’ve done this summer? (I know. I’m sooo self-involved. Many apologies.)
Well, I: Hung out at a literary festival, saw a moose, watched my girls play a lot of awesome tennis, went camping, almost hit a deer while driving, face-planted on a rock while riding, read a lot of poetry (Muldoon, Lowell, Olds, Tretheway Hass), wrote some poems, celebrated a new book, taught a few classes (confessionalism, scenes/passages, art museum writing sessions).
And I’ve been riding a fair amount. Not as much as I would have liked–what else is new–but enough to keep me sane. Relatively sane.
Here are some images. I hope you enjoy them.
Enchanted Forest trail at Apex.
Me and shadow.
Elk! Hiding behind a pole. (You can still see her.)
Poison Spider Trail, Moab. (I crawled on my hands knees at a few points.)
Rainbow. White Ranch.
