Tulip Red Umbrella

In case you missed it, Carol Muske Dukes has an appreciation of Adrienne Rich right here, in the Sunday, 4/16/12 edition of the LA Times. There you will find reference to a tulip red umbrella and its owner.

Speaking of Carol, if you weren’t at the 2001 AWP conference in Palm Springs, you missed The Pink Tuxedos and experiencing Rita Dove’s gorgeous singing voice. Don’t despair. Here is a  link, right here. Thanks for the link, Carol—I finally watched the video after all these brief, whipsnapping years.

Quote For The Weekend will come early this week as I prepare to depart (road trip style w/husband, preschooler and Kindle Fire) for the Spring Spirit conference in Rocklin. Apparently the conference is sold out. I’m quite excited to attend. The YA Muses will be there and you can bet their panel will be informative and interesting. Hopefully Beth Hull will be there, too–although she might skip it in order to bring new life into this world. It’s supposed to be 85 degrees in Rocklin. Gah! For a year and a half now each month has had a heatwave tucked into it. It’s only April. Where’s the sunblock.
