Book launch tomorrow night, and all is in place. The bookstore has the books, the local paper and tv stations have promoted the event, and so has the University of Tennessee.
What can go wrong? (Isn't that a Jewish frame of mind?)
Snow is predicted for late in the evening. Let's hope they're wrong!
I have new shoes (broke down and went to the sale today at Dillard's), three inch heels, sturdy, but high. Lots of people have said, "Break a leg!"
And of course the cd that we're going to play ("My Favorite Penis Poems, " by Del Tredici, to go with my poem, "Trout")--that could backfire, as technology often does!
I could go on--but as you can see, I'm feeling pretting good about the poems themselves. I've memorized the suckers! I've rehearsed endlessly and will do a full-scale set tonight, with no alcohol. I need my brain cells.
Deep breathing now.
Wish you were here, I really do! Best to you in your work, Mairlyn
