Surprising Tapestry of Sessions at SXSW – South By Southwest…

SXSW is a 3-part festival, with Interactive going the first 5 days, Music the last 5, and Film stretched through the full festival.

Denver for Writers

I just spent 4 days in Denver – first visit ( & the beginning of my winding down the Sabbatical year tour) – and while I found myself a bit afflicted by the altitude, it was a beautiful, walkable city with a lot to offer a writer passing through in the way of writing spaces & writing surfaces & writing snacks and other refreshments.
