Michelle H. Barnes, at Today's Little Ditty sometimes asks for five words in response to something. Last spring, the question was what does poetry mean to you. I replied with
A poet’s words linger longer…
|the cabins where I'll stay|
Poetry does mean much to me, and today I'm celebrating taking the next week off, from work, mostly from online things (I'll have my computer.) in order to go to a poetry workshop with David L. Harrison, poet extraordinaire, website here, at the Highlights Foundation retreat near Honesdale, Pennsylvania. It's my second time, and I plan to write and write and enjoy the beautiful autumn that I know is waiting. I leave Sunday and am so, so excited. I'm celebrating that I am able to go, that my school supports this, and that I have the beautiful chance to work with David and the rest of the writers who will be there, from all over the US and Canada.
More to come next time! It was a good week all the way through, ending with Ingrid coming home with me after school on Friday, ever a joy.
I hope you all have a terrific week next week!
