The following week we jetted off with friends to the British Virgin Islands, and I have some nice photos of our sailing and snorkeling there. While there, we spent most of our nights at Cooper Island, where they have a Beach Club resort that is almost off-the-grid, and we took a tour of their solar, water treatment, and waste treatment operations, and had a glimpse of their microbrewery.
This past weekend we attended a Worcester March for Science. The local congressman, Jim McGovern spoke as well as others. It was not as big as Boston or DC, but it was well-attended.
Also, I had the opportunity to hear poet Marie Howe read at the Robert Creeley Poetry awards,
You will also see here some photos of meals, my trip to NYC to read a poem at a journal launch, and friends.

NYC at Night
I had the chance to read my poem, Asparagus, at the journal launch for The Mom Egg, Volume 15, in NYC on April 2. I took my Brompton bike onto the LIRR and road around the city beforehand. These are my photos of the night time, just before I hopped on the LIRR back to my car.
