oh i wish i could be there...but no worries, i'm sure you'll do great. i'm sure it will be better than great--there is something very encouraging, and affirming, in speaking our own words aloud.

break a leg!

Thanks, for the encouragement, Jennifer! I love reading poems, and have done it so much that it seems more natural--it will be different to read prose for the first time.
