Couldn’t have been a better time:

Snapped a shot of the crowd from my angle, too (this is after the Q&A, after a few folks had stepped out):

AWP 2023

Such a good time. Hadn’t been in . . . maybe eleven years? Nice being back. And, Seattle’s always cool—caught Between Two Knees AND Scream 6 there, and slouched past the Space Needle Two Moons climbed once upon a story. And? Had one of those Chipotle-for-lunch and Chipotle-for-dinner days, which are pretty much the best days of all (this is my default when I’m not with people, or being chaperoned around).

What pics etc I stumbled upon:

2023 American Indian Festival of Words Writers Award!

Just back. Another whirlwind thirty-six hour turnaround, but, man, got to talk with so many cool and excellent people, got to be part of the coolest awards ceremony—singing, drumming, storytellers, veterans. It was this:

Not really Reaper tour anymore: Missoula!

Such an honor to get to do this event in downtown Missoula, at the museum. Standing room only—there was even a spillover area (I see now):

(not against buns in hair, but mine’s not that: just, wearing some gift-stuff)

And, wow, to be introduced by Lois Welch and Chris La Tray:

And then it was off to the reading races. Hit a couple small pieces, then it was “Attack of the 50 Foot Indian”:

And, most amazing: Lois Welch gifting me this, that hung above James Welch…

Don’t Fear the Reaper tour: Boulder

Wow, ending this whole wild ride right back where I live—where I usually live, anyway. So cool. Have never packed this place either, but, there were people sitting to either side as well. Such a good Q&A, and it’s always the best, speaking with Arsen and Maeve. The radio + podcast version should post . . . in March, I think?

Don’t Fear the Reaper tour: Denver

Have done a lot of events at Tattered Cover over the last dozen or so years, but I’ve never managed to fill the place such that they had to bring out more chairs. Was the best time. Snowy-bad night—really appreciate everybody making the trek.

As for me, once again, I skated in about forty-five seconds before the event was going live. And? They’d whipped up a special drink, even:

And then it was getting to talk into mics with Erika, which is always the best time:

First, it was Brian Asman on the rocking intro:

Then it was getting to talk with RJ Crowther—who’s IN the acknowledgements of Reaper!

Don’t Fear the Reaper tour: Austin

Was in town for this this this:

With these guys:

And we got to introduce, get everybody screaming “We made you!”

And then it was the live recording, and the signing of many-many books, and the B…
