I’m reading at Isabella’s tonight at the Dubuque Area Writers Guild “Final Farewell to Isabella’s” event. I’m nervous, but also excited. It has been so long since I’ve read anything. I think my desire to create is finally taking over my fear of rejection. I will miss that place. Drinking there is like drinking in your friend’s basement in high school. I love it. I am reading a piece of microfiction and a eulogy to the bar.
