I am a recipient of a Puffin Foundation 2007 grant award for She: Bike/Spoke/Love !!

hella busy this month and the last.

just got another grant, yesterday, from the Puffin Foundation, in support of my upcoming spoken word bicycle theater play SHE: BIKE/SPOKE/LOVE. (that's my big focus for the next 6 to 12 months.)

i'm incredibly surprised that i'm typing this at 7:35 a.m. damn phone rang, and woke me. gonna mess w/ my schedule and biorhythms today, it is.

tomorrow i fly out to Kingsville (TX A&M) for a 3-day artist/writer residency at the university. will be lecturing, performing, and leading 2 workshops with high school students in the nearby community.

over the weekend, i'll roadtrip to McAllen for my first ever visit to the Valley. such a mythical, legendary place, it seems. will be there to promote and celebrate HECHO EN TEJAS with a reading at a Barnes & Noble and a workshop for high school teachers in La Joya ISD--to give 'em ideas for how to use our book in their classrooms. of course, bbq and other social events are pegged for all the visiting writers (Dagoberto Gilb, Macarena Hernandez, David Garza, Erasmo Guerra, Christine Granados, Roberto Ontiveros, and several others).
