A healthy number of people showed up on Monday to participate in Julia Connor's poet laureate Think Postcard project. Indigo Moor was Mr. Conviviality as he got everybody involved with scissors, magazines, pens, glue, and glitter. He assured everyone that their efforts would be acceptable whatever they did. Becca Costello from Sacramento News & Review showed up and took part while she grilled the participants (knowing that they might be on the record) with light-hearted conversation. The pressure to say something appropriate was excruciating. I'm afraid several participants may have failed in that regard.
