Thank you/Salamat for supporting the “Pagbabalik” work-in-progress last Sunday! The house was packed…the spirits were definitely with us…and I’ve really appreciated the feedback that folks have given (if you haven’t, please send in your evaluation!)

If you missed it, or even if you were there – PHOTOS will be posted very soon on the yahoogroups site, here on and! And keep an eye out for an article that is being written by a local journalist.

As you know…the “Pagbabalik” journey is not over. We are going to work on the next phase of the show, for early 2007. So keep posted. And to CONTRIBUTE towards the show (venue, technical, artist fees, promotion), please go to and click on “Pagbabalik.”

Next – please come to my next POETRY READING at San Francisco’s LITQUAKE/Litcrawl, NEXT SATURDAY the 14th. I’m joined by fantastic poets/artists Leticia Hernandez , Ise Lyfe, Ruperto Estanislao, and the Dalva host and local poetess Elz Cuya! Details below.
See you soon!


Lit Crawl
October 14, 6 PM
Various Locations in the Mission

The Lit Crawl is for those who like their literature served neat, on the rocks, or with a water back. It is a bona fide night out on the town. Instead of being confined to night tables, Oprah, or book club discussion groups, books take to the streets as folks gather up their friends and head out the door for their serving of authors and literature.

Thirty-one venues will host over 150 writers in genres as varied as travel, poetry, noir & mystery, literary fiction, music, erotica, science fiction, spirituality, Latino, queer, young adult, and more will clamber onto bar counters in cocktail lounges, recline in chaise lounges, or, in one case, take over a Laundromat in order to read.

All Lit Crawl events are FREE; see specific venue for any age restrictions.
