This is going to be a lumpy, bumpy slice of life because I’m not sure how to tell you about my adventure last week at the Highlights Foundation with 17 other poets (including our leader, David L. Harrison and skyping with Renee La Tulippe and J. Patrick Lewis); sometimes a few editors, like Rebecca Davis, Sr. Editor for Boyd's Mill Press; a kitchen staff (thank you chef Joe); and time, time, time. Oh wait, I guess I just gave you a summary. And my hope is that you can fill in the rest, with words like marvelous, comforting, supportive, filling, inspiring, exhilarating, friendly, informative and a.very.good.time! Here is a sketch of my little cabin from my notebook:
Here are some photos to fill in even more.
|view when I walked out of my cabin each morning|
|my cabin no. 8, in the middle|
|a place I sat to write, a stream flowing by below|
|an old log I thought looked like a creature about to move through the leaves|
|the outdoor patio where we had evening entertainment from each other!|
|a space to sit and write while being inspired-rocks with words-see next pic|
|a close-up of words on one rock-a special place|
|oh wouldn't everyone love this swing?|
|beautiful starry flowers still blooming large|
|my desk where I wrote too|
Among so many good words of advice, from David L. Harrison, our wise leader: “YOU CAN’T IMPROVE A BLANK PIECE OF PAPER!” No more need be said! Write, write and write some more!
Here’s something I wrote to the tune of “dirt”, and it may change, I hope improved, but thought I had to show you that I did write, and write some more!
Little Janie adores the taste
of the tasty pies she makes for lunch.
With dirt and water, pebbles and grass,
she also loves the way they crunch!
