Whirlwind. Landing in some miserable rain in Boston, driving through that rain, nearly accidentally sideswiping someone! Which was unnerving. Walking through Northampton after said rain running into Holly and then Kelly quite accidentally. At first reading of the night, ran into Kelli from my MFA program, who I hadn’t seen in 10+ years. Experienced readings throughout from such books as Travel in the Mouth of the Wolf and Structure of the Embryonic Rat Brain and Everyday Psychokillers, etc. etc. Was part of a panel at the Emily Dickinson homestead in a very tiny room. Encountered secret libraries behind secret doors (not in Emily Dickinson’s house, btw). Spent time, along with good hosts/publishers, with Matt and Meghan. Read from “Home of the”. After reception, went to Holly and Theo’s house, where some a******e was consumed. And heard, perhaps, the greatest drinking song bequeathed to humankind by drunkards. Had Swedish pancakes in the morning and departed back to the Loon State without incident. Whirlwind, but definitely worth it.

    Don’t be so ashamed of drinking assjuice. In some countries it’s considered a delicacy.
