I lost my camera (hopefully only temporarily), so I can't post the pictures, but this cool woman, Maya Stein, stopped by MagPo headquarters for a beer, brats and apples lunch yesterday. She's touring the country in a car festooned with Magnetic Poetry tiles, meeting with folks she's connected with on her most-excellent poetic blog. I invited her to join my friend, Hans and I for an open house at the world-renowned Minnesota Center For Victims of Torture. Chilling, horrific, enraging, sad, poignant, uplifting and inspiring are a few adjectives I'd use in describing that place/experience. I'm still processing it, though; maybe I'll talk more about it in the future.
