. . . a few stragglers might still be at the Desmond Koi Pond marveling that the bright colors are a lot like the beautiful foliage we saw on the bus to and from the Clark Art Museum. Someone will point us toward the Town Hall, where we'll enjoy a read-around and hear Jim Kacian explain why "Realism is Dead." It is a little daunting, but quite exciting, that Haiku North America 2015 will be unfolding at the Desmond in seven days, and spread quickly to Union College in Schenectady.
Our local committee co-chairs Hilary Tann and John Stevenson have been going non-stop for many weeks, to make this a great Conference, and I [David Giacalone] want to thank them, and the folks in the Administration at Union College, as well as staff at the Desmond, for putting an optimistic smile on my face as the Conference is upon us.
- Downtown Interactive Map Browse Downtown Schenectady's shops, restaurants, services, lodging, cultural attractions, transportation and parking.

No matter the weather on any one day, Union Campus will be beautiful on the outside, as well as inside, in Hale House, the Everest and Milano and Lounges, Old Chapel, Emerson Auditorium, etc. etc. See you soon.
