My Long Weekend: A Camera Phone Essay


First, I read at the gorgeous new Tempe Center for the Arts as the second event in the Tempe Poetry in April series.


I dropped Arden off at my parents’ house for the weekend and left for California right after my reading!


Then I went to Magic Mountain–twice!


After a long day of roller coastering, we hit the hot tub.


We drove back to AZ at 5 am…and after a busy day, we hit the bars to celebrate Phoenix Pride.


On Sunday, I enjoyed a slight headache and a contemplative moment in the grass.


Then, there was Panic. But you knew that already.
