Trickster Ridge: A Confluence on the Western Slope

In Celebration of the Arts, the Sciences, and Human Ingenuity
Sept 10-12, taking place in various outdoor venues from Palisade to Fruita in the Grand Valley

Rosemerry joins on Friday (family obligations the rest of the weekend)

Escaping into the Moment, a writing workshop
with Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer
When: Fri, Sept 10, 4:15 – 5:30
Where:  Talbott’s Tap Room, (patio seating)
3800 F 1/4 Rd, East Orchard Mesa
(at the top of 38 Rd, aka the Fruit and Wine
Scenic Byway) in Palisade

The act of writing a poem can bring us closer to the essence of the moment, can help us exist in immediacy. In this session, both practical and playful, we’ll sharpen our observational skills to engage with the poetry in everything—objects, locations, situations, conversations. We’ll practice meeting what Hopkins calls “thisness.” As Mary Oliver writes, “the world offers itself to your attention, over and over.” Let’s meet it, pen in hand.


When: Fri, Sept 10, 7 pm-11 pm
Where: Trickster Ridge in Palisade
(address provided on registration)

Late Night Friday on the Edge:
Reaching for The Continent: a dance-party with Uche Ogbuji

Uche will be spinning music from his native Africa, ranging from the 60s to the present year. Come dance with the tumba, djembe and talking drum, while you groove with the griot, jive with the djali, find the urge in the oja, or just nod your noggin.
