Go Democrats.

A full day writing workshop in the garden Sunday - 9 writers, 4 from my classes, 5 complete strangers, gathering in the morning, writing through the day with prompts from me and a very big lunch midday. The day could not have been nicer - after two boiling muggy days, it was mild with some blessed cloud. At the end, we sat on the deck with a glass of wine, eating bread and cheese and talking about our writing, our lives, the day. They stayed an extra hour and by the end, felt like old friends.

And I fell over with fatigue. It's a wonderful event and very tiring. Onward.

I'm watching the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia. Oh these Americans with their jazzy, absurd show biz. But the fate of the world depends on this one.
