I don't know the exact year, but I think this is from 1975 or 1976, when we lived in the East Bay. I seem very determined to blow out each candle on my birthday cake. Dig the shirt.
Early in 2008, I was at the Loft Literary Center in one of my favorite cities, Minneapolis, for a poetry reading with Sun Yung Shin and Bryan Thao Worra. Pictured from left to right: Bao Phi, Lee Herrick, Bryan Thao Worra, and Ed Bok Lee.
In May 2008, in Seoul, Korea before a poetry reading, we met a nice woman making kimchi, and she insisted I try some and proceeded to feed me a huge mouthful. I had no choice but to devour it--much to my delight. This is one of my favorite pictures.
