A free workshop on writing love poetry at the DeWitt Community Library brings quirky and touching moments from community members.

Love can be an erupting volcano, purring, the emotional trajectory of a yo-yo or even an aardvark. These were just some of the thoughts shouted out by eager participants in a free love poetry workshop held at the DeWitt Community Library. Local poet and retired librarian Martin Willitts Jr., 65, had invited the dozen or so members of the crowd to expand their definition of love through free association, while he scrawled their responses on a large sheet of paper.

Sunday, April 21: Day Three

11 a.m.: I sleep in for the longest on Day 3, probably because I’ve been overexposed to the sun for the last 48 hours, jet-lagged, and finally adjusted to the desert nighttime and camping lifestyle conditions… too bad it’s all going to be over soon.

2 p.m.: Coachella Art Studio sponsored by The Coachella Valley Art Scene During the day I managed to check out the Coachella Art Studio on the camping grounds, about a five-minute walk from our campsite.
