Wyatt Townley named Poet Laureate of Kansas

The Kansas Humanities Council (KHC) recently announced that UCOP's very own Wyatt Townley has been named the 2013-2015 Poet Laureate of Kansas. As Poet Laureate of Kansas, Wyatt will promote the humanities as a public resource for all Kansans through public readings, presentations, and discussions about poetry in communities across the state. Wyatt Townley is a widely published, nationally known poet and a fourth-generation Kansan. Her work has been featured on National Public Radio's "The Writer's Almanac" with Garrison Keillor, as well as in numerous prestigous literary journals. She has published three collections of poetry: "The Breathing Field," "Perfectly Normal" and "The Afterlives of Trees," a Kansas Notable Book and winner of the Nelson Poetry Book Award, all of which can be found in our UCOP bookstore. Wyatt has said, "The notion of 'home' is a long-held Kansas value, and I'd like to start a conversation around the state about coming home to poetry. Poetry is a place we can return to in all kinds of weather, with its innate power to heal and comfort, transform and inspire. Its porch light is always on."

Colors and Gemstones:

Positive Thoughts for Successful Living



Remember when you were a youngster and the get-to-know you question was, "what is your favorite color?" Your favorite color and the colors you are most drawn to reveal a lot about you, your life, your needs and desires. Join this award winning author as she shares how colors influence the way we feel, act and react to others. Learn how the gemstones you are drawn to wear as well as the colors of the foods you ingest show you if you need more comfort and love, or if you need to be heard. Learn which stones or colors to use to help you get motivated and take action or to motivate you to take more time for contemplation and prayer. Learn to match colors and gemstones with positive thoughts to transform your life! Margaret Ann is extremely intuitive and she will give everyone a message from the Angel Gemstone Oracle!
