Hey Alan,
I hope writing has been treating you well and that y'all had fun at the Bop-A-Que. I wanted to invite you personally since Mahogany Books DC is hosting a party with me on Monday, September 20, 6:30 p.m.– 8:30 p.m. at Utopia, 1418 U Street.

Rich and I are cool. We love our apartment, and we're staying busy. I have a lot of writing to do this summer. I'm trying to find a teaching position for the fall and send out the manuscript. Thanks for asking. Feel free to update or check in when you have the time.

Alan! Thanks so much for responding. I was actually just about to message you about a blog you wrote on Moammed Ali N. (I'm not even about to try to spell his last name). I tried to leave a comment, but it said the blog was closed for comments. You made me really want to read his chapbook.

I dont think I've seen you since we met last year at the EOR thing Gabriel had at the Banana Cafe...are you still writing for EOR? If you see Inez, tell her said what-up! She made me laugh out loud for real.
