I managed to navigate across the river in Opryland (yes, there is a river and a river boat there under the biodome) and had a lovely dinner with Naomi Shihab Nye courtesy of HarperCollins and the lovely Patty Rosati. What a fabulous group of women assembled for dinner among the cascading waterfalls. Naomi is one of the women I most admire as a poet and as a person. She regaled us with stories and listened to ours as well. Now, it is off to bed for an early ALAN Breakfast where Naomi will awaken us with her words. Peace.
