Hey, Diane! Where have you been?

September 25, 2014

Obviously not blogging.

I was down with pneumonia for a while and it’s just taken time to get my act (and breath) back together.

Then it was off to Salt Lake City. The Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation


gave me a mini-grant to get me to town and to the Sunnyvale Neighborhood Center for writing workshops with refugee youth. A LOT of them. Ages 5-17. Some recent arrivals just learning English. We’re publishing a little book of their work and I’m posting IF YOU REALLY KNEW ME, the PDF version of it here so anyone who’s interested can download it.

It wasn’t all work. Visits with friends, exhilarating hikes in Bryce Canyon…and now I’m exhausted. I’ll post a few photos and then take a nap!
