Back From the West

photo credit: Cindy Cheung Whew, four readings in four different cities in four days. How’d it go? Only one word can describe it: superawesome!

While I was reading I broke into a sweat and my glasses kept slipping off my nose, but, hell, nothing would stop me from reading for and poisoning the minds...
