The past month has been the Month of Conferences. First, there was UNLV’s Far West Popular Culture conference. Then so much traveling: five days in Seattle for AWP, followed by a 7-hour road trip (with three poets, no less) to Reno for UNR’s On the Brink conference. Y’all know I love to see things I ain’t never seen. Highlights include Seattle’s Space Needle & Chihuly Glass Gardens, the drive down the Loneliest Road in America, and Lake Tahoe.
