I left poor Clovis alone for most of the day. Terrible. I was at the Poetry and Politics Conference in New Hampshire where I met an amazing list of poets laureate of states from Texas to Maine. It was wonderful (aside from being apart from Clovis)! Interesting discussions and lots of great poetry. State arts organizations are under siege all across the country, and no one knows it better than these poets. We should all do more to support our state and local arts organizations and tell our government officials how much we value them.
But in the meantime, we can appreciate a few pictures of Clovis I took the other very sunny day just before our nap. If Clovis could talk, he would definitely be a vocal supporter of poetry and the other arts! :)
