Random Photos

This is an incredibly busy time, and I'm just trying to keep it together. April proved not to be the cruelest month this year, but Inter/National Poetry Month went by like a bullet train and my postings were admittedly spotty. There are still a few more weeks in the semester, and then I hope to post a bit more consistently and frequently. Until then, a few photos of recent events.
