And the heat goes on. In the sun it has been 95-100 degrees. Hot, hot, hot. We made it through work this weekend, but not too easily. For anyone who thought I was being rude by not speaking to them, I wasn’t. I have laryngitis and have since last Thursday. Hopefully by the time you read this I will be speaking again. It is hard on David because he has to make all my calls and cancel all my appointments, etc. He’s not real happy about it, but neither am I. It is like being trapped in an unresponsive body. Not fun. Add that to the feeling that an elephant is sitting on my chest and that is how my week has gone.
Poets on the Porch X, the start to the Norway Arts Festival 2012 was very successful. Fortunately, Norway Library had a mic and John knew how to set it up. That was the only way I could be heard. Everyone else used just their voices. The library has very good acoustics. In any case, we all read a poem based on Barbara ’s picture of the marsh. It was quite fun. We also each read a poem by a local poet from yesterday. Then we also read several of our own poems. It was a great night.
