…impatient I’m passionate. I was reminded of that tonight as I stood patiently waiting to speak to Leona Theis (she was popular, and rightly so), as my child yanked my arm several times, telling me to give up, asking me why we couldn’t just leave, demanding to know why we had to stay and chat if the reading was over.
Of course, all this was after a hectic day of two exams, back to back, a few hours of work, and a wonderful book launch. Joining Leona in launching were our future poet laureate, Robert Currie, Marie Elyse St. George, and Gail Robinson. Unfortunately Martha Blum was ill and couldn’t be there. There was an awesome crowd, the readers were terrific, the food was spectacular, and I was able to sneak away before 9pm.
Wish I could’ve been there.
I miss my SK friends.
Ok. Let’s circulate a petition demanding that Alberta return Rhett at once.
Return to sender!
Rhett, you should really come home for Talking Fresh. And Christmas. And Remembrance Day. And groundhog day. And…
Oh, and did I say, we miss displaced Saskatchewan friends?
I wish I could’ve been at the reading, too! Too much going on in my life, I can’t get to everything.
I’ll sign the petition, B. Will it be online at The Petition Site?
Okay, Christmas for sure. Talking Fresh is in the spring? I couldn’t see dates on the Luther site? I think that would be a fun road trip.
End of March– I think. Don’t quote me though.
March 23-24 – I think. Don’t quote me though.
