Springtime in Alberta

First there was snow, then hot weather, now it's back to snow, & then later on it will be back to hot weather. Springtime in Alberta is always kooky, but nice.

Anyhow not a lot is going on right now for me. I have been appointed Director for a group of poets called Most Vocal which operates here in Lethbridge. The challenge I face now is to keep the group going & growing. Lately at the open mikes & events with featured readers from the Canada Council the turn out has been rather low. I can't figure out exactly why, perhaps Lethbridge has grown tired of poetry, or maybe I just need to change things up a bit & how that will be done is anybody's guess. There are a lot of choices I could make & I'm not sure how the older members of the group will react. For those of you who know my background in the arts you have an idea of what I am capable of, & those that don't will sooner or later find out. Anyways that's it for now. I was going to write a poem, but I just don't feel inspired.
