Pictures from my Pacific Northwest Tour

I got back from tour a little more than a week ago, and I'm moving apartments this week (I'm an Artist in Residence! -- more about this later). Therefore, in lieu of a detailed recap of my Pacific Northwest Tour, here are some pictures from my iPhone.

Wreck Beach in Vancouver. It was about 65 degrees. That did not preclude the obligatory three 60+ white male hippies from taking full advantage of the beach's clothing optional policy.

You never see these old cars on the East Coast. They were all over in the PNW.

View from the bus from Seattle to Spokane

Seattle microbrews. Stout fest was happening while I was in town. This did not help my god complex. (Other hand is my friend Kat from college, who now lives in Seattle and was awesome enough to take me out on my night off.)

Rise and shine. Another 8AM bus ride.

An incredible piece in a museum in Seattle. A series of rustic ceramic mugs, each one a relief of a war scene.

Ladies' Room PSA

It needed to be said. In Limerick form.

I'm back in Boston! Proper Pacific North West Tour recap coming soon.

Help Jade get published with one click!

Hello friends. As I've mentioned, I'm a finalist in the Write Bloody Book Contest. If I win I'll get a full-length book of poetry published with this awesome press.

The contest is mainly judged on the manuscript, of course, but there is also a video/performance aspect based on a YouTube video and how many likes your video gets. This part is somewhat confusing and awkward, but it's 2012 and we're all trying to navigate the cah-RAYzee way the teh INTERNET is throwing our concepts of life and art in a blender.

Therefore, you can help me get published with one click! You need to like the video on YouTube, which means you need to sign in. If you don't have an account, you can make on for free or log in with your Google account.

Here is the video. If you like it, please click "like." If you want to pass it along via email, social media, etc., and let others know they can help by liking, that would also be awesome.

Thank you so much. I appreciate it more than you can know.
