Punch bowl

Went out to Wilder Ave yesterday for my first sit-in with Bamboo Ridge’s (bambooridge.com) event planning committee.  The small press has been dedicated for 30 years to showcasing and publishing local Hawaiian literature including the work of wonderful writers like Lois Ann Yamanaka and my friend Wing Tek Lum.  This coming December will be their first big birthday bash and fundraiser honoring over 30 of the unsung  contributors and volunteers who have helped Bamboo Ridge thrive.  The people that were there were so nice.  I really enjoyed myself and I’m looking forward to helping them plan.

Tomorrow I’m attending the HIFF staff meeting.  K is working and has to use the car so I’m going to try to take the bus for the first time (thebus.org).  I’ve heard bad things about it.  Like that it never comes when it’s meant to.  And I have to take three different routes and it will take over an hour for a normally 20 minute car ride.  Egad.  We’ll see how it goes.
