This is Alys, your PSI Events & Programs Coordinator and amateur tech guru (as PSI President Deborah Petersen likes to call me!). As the grayed gloom of late Winter is replaced with the colors, scents, and sounds of Spring here in Indiana, we've been busy at PSI getting ready for our annual Spring Fling conference and of course celebrating National Poetry Month!
Part of my service to PSI includes updating the website and our public Facebook page with information about this year's Spring Fling and things like the conversational National Poetry Month Daily Prompts that Deborah's sharing with you. I hope you are enjoying the prompts, and I hope you'll attend our Spring Fling on 24 April via Zoom! It's going to so much fun! In the meantime, I hope you're enjoying the warmer weather as much as I am!
On a personal note, I also hope that President Biden's COVID-19 vaccination [program is going smoothly for you. I'm scheduled to receive my second vaccination shot this Friday, and I can't wait! With my pre-existing health conditions putting me at elevated risk for COVID-19, I've been isolated for over a year and it was really hard waiting for Indiana to open up vaccinations to my age group (Indiana's vaccination plan went by age not at-risk categories, and moved very slowly until just a few weeks ago). Having the full vaccine means that I'll be able to hug my loved ones for the first time in 404 days ~ my "Hug Day" is 24 April, our Spring Fling date! I hope all of you have your own long-awaited "Hug Day" coming soon, too!
