We Owned the Road: Southern Writers/Southern Writing Conference - Oxford, MS

What a time. I just made it back home. I am exhausted. Please check back in the next few days for pictures and videos. I want to specially thank my family for making the trip to see me read. Also, it was wonderful sharing a panel with friend and fellow McNeese poet, J. Bruce Fuller. Also I am happy to announce that a poem from the reading was picked up to be published in a forthcoming issue of You Must Be This Tall To Ride. More info: TBA. Stay tuned for updates, videos, and pictures.

Here are a few to tide you all over

This was a random occurrence. A sunflower field in full bloom. Somewhere on HWY 6.

After getting back to the Delta, we headed straight to the Jim Henson Museum in Leland, MS. Every time we bring guest to the Delta, this is a must see location. It is the birthplace of Henson and Deer Creek served as the "ideal" home for Kermit.
The Crossroads. According to J, "Ralph Macchio was full of crap."
Our panel. The reading went better than I could have expected. We recorded videos of Both J's and my reading. Hopefully those will be posted this week.
