A week in October

A week in October
October 12, 2009 Jennifer Boylan

mass_bay_comm_college Well, with the Red Sox collapse complete, it’s time to head out on the road for two short talks this week. I hope anyone who’s interested in hearing me tell the same old jokes will consider coming on out. I’ll be doing a mix of new and old material at these two events, reading from my work and talking about civil rights for trans people– and everybody.

Richmond_Virginia-751407First one’s at Mass Bay Community College, tomorrow (Tuesday), from 11-12. Mass Bay’s in Wellesley Hills, Mass. The second one, on Thursday night, is in Richmond, VA, from 7 to 8, for the Richmond Human Resources Council. I’m not certain that the VA one is open to the public, so if you’re interested in this one, email me and I’ll see if I can make provisions for you with my sponsors.

IMG_0198Then home for dinner with Colby trustees, and dinner with friends on Saturday featuring a lord-of-the-rings trivia game. Plus, on Wed. night, during the 5 minutes I’m back between Mass. and Va., I’ll be in the audience watching my older son strut around the stage at his school for opening night of his play. Another action packed week.

Fall is peaking up here, the skies blue, the trees orange and yellow and red.  (Photo above is of Long Pond, just in front of the summer place, now pretty much sealed up unitl spring.) I spent part of the weekend splitting wood, and the smell of wood smoke is heavy in the air. Took out the screens from the windows. Walked the dogs up a mountain and looked down on all the colors of the world.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed your books, She’s Not There and I’m Looking Through You. Very enlightening for me! It would be great to attend one of your presentations – or better yet, meet you in person. My bestestest girlfriend would love to meet Grace and visit with her too. Thanks for sharing small details about your life in these blogs. It would be terrific to be in Maine right now enjoying the fall colors, wood smoke, etc.

    Now that’s an autumn scene I’d love….walking in the heart of it with a loved one – animal or human. Some things you do really tell me we are kindred spirits….in some ways! I”m not a writer, but I do love good writing. Carry on, intrepid traveler.
