And The Beat Goes On

Gene & I have slid down south to celebrate Anniversary 23. Wow. Twenty-three. We'll be state parking it after today. Hopefully later this week I'll have some good nature photos to post. I love, love, love to see the tobacco drying in those open barns.

In other southern news, I've been really enjoying the clusterflock blog, which has absolutely nothing to do with the south thematically, except there's a link there today to another blog that has Flannery O'Connor giving a lecture at Notre Dame and reading her story "A Good Man Is Hard To Find." Follow the links and you can download the lecture and the story.

And finally, I have a poem up at jmww. A very nice way to end the day.

Where might you be down south? Might you be in the beautiful Smokies? Or perhaps just Brown County?

Your poem looks grand. Congratulations on the publication and moreso, on 23 years.

Charmi said...

Thanks, Talia.

We're in Southern Ohio tonight and tomorrow night, not exactly the deep south, more like the shallow south, or maybe the lip of the south or something. But then it's onward to Kentucky for the rest of the week.

Rachel said...

Yes, congrats on both landmarks, Charmi. I hope you have fun, and bring us back some lovely pics! :) The poem turned out great!

"There was a stolen bicycle chained
to a crucifix..." I like the line very much!

Charmi said...

Thanks, ladies.

We're having an interesting time down here. Gene's thinking about getting my name tattooed to his arm ;-)

Congrats on 23!! Thanks for hangin out on Saturday, the cider was top notch, come back soon!

Charmi said...

Thanks, Jesus. We had a great time.

I'm going to post the cider recipe on the blog, then your sister & mom can just have it!
