memorial for a brilliant woman

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Yes, I have not posted for two weeks!

But that is going to change. I am (once again, foolishly, because I have a masochistic streak) writing a poem-a-day for the month of June.

Frankly, I've been floundering since April, writing little to nothing for the month, doing some revising but I need a place to drop off new ideas, ya know?

I have been doing cross stitch, which no one much does anymore. Just finished a monocolor tree/heart motif, now I'm working on a lovely 'stained-glass look" art deco rose. Think Charles Rennie MacIntosh and you have the idea. It's my first full coverage piece, and I've been doing this a long time (30 plus years).

My 30th wedding anniversary is this month. I've been an employee of (some) Episcopal Church for 40 years. I moved to Richmond 40 years ago this month. Lot's of major things here.

I want to like this poem, but I don't

Read it HERE

more on Tracy HERE

and HERE

maybe she just didn't see the same movie I did, or dream about that scene, or want to be there.

Guess I'll see what the rest of the book is like.

Young people. Sigh.

Ya missed em- until they appear elsewhere

All those poems, thirty of them, are gone from here and are being scrubbed and rethought to make them better.

Ya missed 'em. Oh well.

next year.
