Getting Older and Other Miscellenae

Filed under: General — Neil Aitken @ 6:33 am

As of today, I’m now the ripe old age of 31 — an age which most of us never dreamt about as kids. Self-included — 31 felt a long way off and suddenly its on the doorstep proclaiming itself. The good thing at least is that I can still pass for 25 :)

In other news, I’ll be attending both the Kundiman Asian American Poetry Retreat and the Idyllwild Summer Poetry Program. It will be a busy but rewarding July. I may simply stash a second suitcase at my door in preparation for my return — I’ll barely get back from Kundiman before I’ll be in the car driving to Idyllwild.

And lastly, this quarter is already half-way done! I’m getting a little worn out from classes and definitely ready for a summer of reading and writing on my own pace. I also need to sit down and make my revisions for my paper on Hillman’s “Cascadia” — a number of people have been pushing for me to get it out and published. Now if I could just manage a decent block of uninterrupted time.

Anyway, back to last minute writing for my classes this morning.

    “I can still pass for 25.” Well, that’s something. Not everyone can say that, I’, sure!
