Some August highlights:
ICA Live! at San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art on August 5th
During the August First Friday Art Walk I had the chance to collaborate with visual artist Peter Foucault, poet Yaccaira Salvatierra and musician (and my niece!) Brittany Biala for some spoken word/music/audience-song generated drawing by Peter and his artbot. Thanks to Patricia Cariño and Cathy Kimball at the ICA for having us!

My thanks to Christine and Dennis Richardson, co-hosts of the popular and long running monthly reading at Willow Glen Library, for inviting me to feature on August 18th. Great participation during the Open Mic and for the POETree!
