Weekend Wanderings - New York Poetry Festival

Like all weekends lately, this one went by too quickly. On Friday afternoon, I took a nice walk through Madison Square Park to Trader Joe's, to pick up some wine for a NY staff meeting I was hosting for LNL.

The dinner went really well, I think. I work with some incredible people, both at LNL and at OUP.

On Saturday, I took a nice wander through Brooklyn and then boarded the ferry to Governor's Island for the NYC Poetry Festival. The festival was great, a lot bigger than the first year they had it (the last time I was there), and Governor's Island is much more beautiful than I remember it as well. I hope to head back there with some friends (and maybe some bikes) soon! I also bought a few friends' books, and I can't wait to read them.

Remember this great poet?

I love the contrast of this old-world ship and new-world skyscrapers.

On Sunday, I woke up a little late and immediately went on my long run. I tried to make it to yoga afterward, but ended up being really dehydrated, so I only made it about 5 minutes into the class before leaving. After a little cleaning and reading, I headed to Newark to meet Roger and his multiple bags of textiles. It was so great to see him after three weeks apart! I can't wait to share his photos from the Ivory Coast soon.

And in the meantime, I know at least two girls who are glad to have him back, me and this baby:
