Local friends, please put October 29 on your calendar. It'll be an evening to thank Mark Chilton for his work as mayor, and the proceeds will benefit EmPOWERment, a Chapel Hill-based nonprofit focused on three essential activities: affordable housing, grassroots economic development, and community organizing

I'm planning to join Stephanie Levin for a 100 Thousand Poets for Change (http://www.bigbridge.org/100thousandpoetsforchange) event on the back patio at Open Eye in Carrboro this Saturday (10/29) from 10 am to noon. Stef's calling it "This is Just to Say…" and it's your chance to stop for a moment and jot a quick note of love, gratitude, or longing you’ve meant to write but haven’t. Notecards, pens, poetry, and hopefully a gentle September breeze will be provided. One-on-one critiques will be offered, too.  Bring up to two poems for on-the-spot feedback. Hope to see some of you Saturday.
