August 19: Come to The Works on Lighthouse Avenue, Pacific Grove, across from the Post Office with the fantastic WPA mural! The brew is for Happy Hour, 5-6 pm. We are launching a series of poetic noetic Happy Hours featuring PG poets. Come join me for the first program, Insisting on Happiness, original poems and poems you love by W.B. Yeats, Shakespeare, John Muir, Mary Oliver,e.e. cummings (of course), Emily Dickinson, and more. Stay tuned for Quantum Happiness at Charlie’s Boat House, Washing the Lake, Bones and Flesh, and others of your radio host of the Poetry Slow Down, KRXA 540AM. See you there! And look here for news about Restore Hetch Hetchy and what poetry has to do with it, the LeConte Memorial Lodge, Oxford University and Emily Dickinson International Society, and Paris’s very own Cafe Lapin Agile, all in the name of poetry out and about, in your neighborhood of your mind.
