As of this time a year ago I'd never heard of the Robinson Jeffers Association, but this year I actually presented on fire in Robinson Jeffers's poetry (not exactly on topic, but I'd been obsessing over the topic so I submitted a summary and it was accepted). It was a truly eye-opening experience, and yes, in a great way. The family, complete with dog, came by on Sunday afternoon, and we stayed Sunday night in Carmel, then on Monday we got in a tour of Tor House and Hawk Tower, and we also paid a visit to Trethaway Cottage. Not a bad weekend!
