Macomb Poetry Festival (Macomb, Illinois)

yes, so this is good morning from the Meredosia Boat Dock, admiring the Magical Jeep from mom’s front porch, getting schooled on organic tea by BroFlo (confirmed hippie NRA-member), rolling on 67, over the bridge at Beardstown then on to West Central Illinois Arts Center on the square in Macomb, Illinois for the “Midwest Contemporary Voices” reading during the Macomb Poetry Festival with featured readers David Wright & Michele McDannold (Magical Jeep Lending Library in tow), presented by Barbara Harroun, Western Illinois University English Professor…. then around the square a bit and magical jeep wandering along backroads (the greatest) of McDonough County. & a little cemetery visit

i hereby resolve to get lost with much purpose #thisispoetry

finishing up the new year’s day meandering.. first three shots are back down the road from the cemetery from the previous post. then there’s my shoes wherever they are.. the final four pics along a country road somewhere in McDonough County, Illinois. Nothing like getting some miles down, first thing in the year
