is the name of the game. Between work and writing and studying, I find time has gone by so quickly.
This was my small stone today on a poetry site I belong...
Busy with studies of poetry and writers revisions, writing new drafts, and laughs because old memories took me down roads long forgotten. I give you something my father used to share, more than his loose change-- don' t take any wooden nickels from strangers. (made it into a poem today)
Packing to go to my MFA school a journey in Cap Cod maybe no internet, just a good ole notebook and pencil they said.
I also met with my poetry mentor Monday. I had taken a class with him and his wife and they ask if I wanted to do some one on ones. They found my writing to be worth a focus, for me to aim at getting writing full of things I know. I have tried to write outside of that, but it just doesn' t work. I don' t have that Jessie Carty touch. She can make lines form in a way I just can' t figure out. But I can cook and she can' t nah nah nah. Oh, she and I laugh about that.
Getting some of that magic in the kitchen into my poems is also a goal. My fifth project is a recipe poem book. Collaboration of many poets. Then I have some other sights in mind.
Hope you are all fine and happy. If not, then work on a goal. It worked for me. And there is a poem over on my elizabethakinstelling.com site, if you're interested...
