I was very surprised and elated to learn of winning the 2010 Creekwalker Poetry Prize. It was also wonderful to read the poems of the other finalists, Temple Cone and Tom Moore. It was interesting that I was up in Bellingham where Tom Moore lives on Saturday to see the town, visit friends and then go see Ruthie Foster at the beautiful Mt. Baker Theatre.
