  1. Ha! Just now saw this. Funny thing about my dog Motzie. We had to do a few takes. I wish my wife had kept recording on a few. Before the last take, my dog went between my legs while I was standing and I almost busted my ass in the water. Not easy to balance on a slimy river rock.

    I need many more poetry-read-in-rivers videos in my life.

    Lovely words, concept, reader and day.
