More photos from Rosemary Beach
Meanwhile, I have a few more photos to share.
First is the wonderful Malayne DeMars, (at right) and a conference goer setting up morning coffee and snacks in the Town Hall. I loved the way the light played against the walls. This is a beautiful space, and the perfect location for writers and storytellers to gather.
Laura Lee Smith; and (background, center) author and FIU prof John Dufresne holding up the column with his wife, the poet Cindy Chinelly talking to author and editor Leonard Nash (eclipsed by the fountain). Seated at the table to the left is poet Rick Campbell.
Actually, I'm not sorry.
Miles DeMott, Leonard Nash, Lynne Barrett (whose collection "Magpies" recently won a gold medal in the Florida Book Awards), Laura Lee Smith, and John Dufresne.
A fountain. Because it's my blog and I can post pictures of fountains if I want. Also because it drew me out of the hall and into the courtyard, water rippling down the stone and recaptured, as John might say, the very way water enters stone.
Thursday, then. If not before. Impressions and thoughts.
