Where in the World are January and Susan?

January, Jeff, me, Elizabeth, and Kathleen at Kabul


The past four days have been a whirlwind of readings, eatings and sightseeing.
Picnic lunch of ceviche and cioppino
Lucky for me January O'Neil is a fabulous photographer as well as an award winning poet.
Here are some of the places we have been over the last few days. January's Seattle postings tell it all. I will just add in a few of my favorite photos of Jan's and one more of my own.


The gold man takes a lunch break
After twelve years living in this lyrical city, I feel I can claim it as my home. And so seeing the gold man, picnicing outside Pike Place Market, reading at Elliott Bay Book Company, and eating our way through High 5 PIE and Poppy, Easy Street and Kabul -- feels like I've been able to show January a window onto a full life. It was a true pleasure to hear Jan read, write together, and share poems. Here's to poetry friends that first meet in the blogosphere and then transfer out to the physical world as well. Such magic when the keyboards and coffee shops align. Thank you Jan for a wonderful time. Come back to Seattle soon.


Friday's sunset from my house. A hopeful omen.

  1. Oooh, I miss the gold man. And you, too, Susan!

    Thanks for showing me your rich, full life in Seattle. I'll have to return the favor on your next visit to Boston. XO

  2. I'm hoping we can see each other in April for the Massachusetts Poetry Festival. The PEM has a few wonderful shows up then and surely there are more good foodie places to try in Salem. Hope the jet lag isn't too bad!
    Much love, S
