The main branch of the Kansas City Public Library might be a place to stop by. This is the Parking garage. The library itself is a gorgeous building. This is in the Down Town area and not far from the Convention center.
I will be posting other attractions over the next few days.

This is the autumn that forebodes the winter which will surely bring cold nights and days of treacherous winter driving.
The multi colors in yards and hanging preciously from trees will give way and at some point, snow will fully usher in winter. Already the mornings are lighter, and dark become my journey home.
This is the time of introversion — not just being alone, but solace.
By winter the quiet will remind me just how along I am most of the time. Snow can be so beautiful but so stark at the same time.
I like quiet time, but I can get lost in too much of it. My heart and my soul ache at such times. The quiet I sometimes enjoys turns on me and I feel quite small and inconsequential.
Submitted work today after a bit of a pause. I've still been writing, but I did take a break from The Grind for November. Mostly because I have been working the 9-5 slave of late, new semester in school, and having an over abundance of migraine headaches.
Reading has not helped, the headaches I mean. I am one away from my annual goal of books read and I will update those titles at the end of the year. The big change this year has been more non-poetry titles. Even though my favorite reads are still poetry, memoir, and biography. Go figure.
We've lost too many significant people this year. Poets Louise Gluck, Charles Simic, Milan Kundera. Matthew Perry from friends was a really hard one. David Crosby, Tony Bennett, Tina Turner, Harry Belafonte, Suzanne Summers, Diane Feinstein Daniel Ellsberg, Bert Bacharach, Raquel Welch, Cindy Williams, and Lisa Marie Presley, Sir Michael Gambon, Brooks Robinson, Vida Blue, Gordon Lightfoot, Wayne Shorter, Traute Lafrenz, and Bobby Hull. Poets, politicians, baseball stars, actors, actresses, musicians, individuals who stood out in times great human strife. I'm sure nor all, and we've got till the end of the year, yet. Perhaps the good Lord above will spare us more losses.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The only journey is the one within.
