Hello, there is an exhibition on Lucille Clifton that is on view through December 30 at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture in Baltimore, MD. http://www.africanamericanculture.org.
Thank you. I will share this with the group who are taking this class and reading her poetry.
Hey, I love reading your blog and have nominated you for The Super Sweetness Blogging Award Award! Please check out my blog for details, post the award on your sidebar and spread the love to some of your favorite bloggers!
Raising horses – coming from a city, I find this interesting and fulfilling.
All good wishes Juliana,
I enjoyed your last blog post–made me smile. Generally, I am so a-religious that some of your interests/concerns are far afield from mine. Nevertheless, I am always interested in how others see things which perhaps explains why I have been married to an Iranian, a Nigerian, etc. I am very flattered that you find my poems, essays, etc. to your liking and are following my blog. Juliana
My o my! You raise horses? Wow! Love, love, them! I don’t get the chance to ride them that much around here, but I dream of having one or two of mine someday.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Will be following yours from now on 🙂
I am pleased to nominate you for the Versatile Blogger Award. The rules are here: http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/vba-rules/ Congratulations! — Jen
Thank you Jen. Now if I can just figure out how to do all this and post the icon on my blog, we are good to go. I never did figure out how to place my icon for being a SCN Star Blogger on my blog so wondering…
“She teaches high school math, but taught English and literature before the administration discovered she was good at math and science.” I found this very cute I actually giggled 😉
I should update this because currently they switched me back to English–seniors no less. A lot easier than teaching freshmen algebra.
I’m really glad I stumble on you blog. Warm regards!
Since you like to travel, go to my blog and start about last August or so and you can follow my three week trip through Ethiopia–I travelled with friends from there which made a huge different.
Will do as soon as I get back from Mexico.
I am really looking forward to following this blog.
Hi, this is Cornelia, I find your posts and thoughts most interesting. Where can I see more of your trips?
If you go to the blog and type in Costa Rica, there are photos, etc. of that. If you type in Ethiopia, there are numerous posts about my trip there and some in Dubai. My book has poems about some of them. All the trip posts have photos of numerous places where I was on these trips.
Thank you so much Juliana
