I regret to report that this coming Sunday’s poetry reading at the Bannockburn community center has been cancelled. With the entire Washington, D.C., metropolitan area hunkering down in anticipation of a mega-snowstorm arriving later today, the sponsors of the event made the eminently sensible decision to cancel the reading and to attempt to reschedule it for a time when the audience will not have to trudge through 18 to 24 inches of snow in order to attend. If and when the event is rescheduled, I’ll announce it here.
One visual arts item: I’m taking a class in abstract acrylic painting at the Yellow Barn Studio in Glen Echo, Maryland, starting this coming Monday, January 25. I’m very much looking forward to it, and I’m hoping that the snowstorm will not require the cancelation of this class as well as the poetry reading. In the meantime, the work of some of the other painters I’ll be working with is available online at outloudartists.org. Take a look.
