Lester and I have returned from an early evening walk to the ocean. He did quite well, and bravely peeped at the pelicans and beach squirrels while eating millet. It felt a bit like summer today. Warm enough to sit outside even as the sun goes down. I've been freezing since I arrived, so I'm glad to learn that it actually does get warm and sunny here, as they claim. A few days ago, I updated my list of publications, readings, performances, and other poetry stuff. It is a long list. I am encouraged.
