Celebrating with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. and linking with others who share their celebrations, too. I am grateful to Ruth for helping us celebrate together!
In the midst of the furor over the election, there were good moments, too. I am not "moving on", but will continue to read and watch and fight against those who are trying to change the good in our country. You can look at the recent actions that tell so much of how this new presidency will be. And you can support organizations that will fight for people and freedoms in jeopardy. I celebrate that I am free to do this.
|On a building downtown. I celebrate the small things this week and watch carefully over the big things.|
"Poetry presents the thing
in order to convey the feeling.
It should be precise about the thing
and reticent about the feeling, for
as soon as the mind connects with the thing
the feeling shows in the words;
this is how poetry enters deeply into
W'ei T'ai - 11th century poet
More wonderful times with the grand-girls: Imogene wore her bunny ears all day and into the evening and I took Ingrid to Starbucks before her conference with her teacher and her mom. I'm excited to have two of my poems in this just published book. And, it snowed! It was a heavy, wet snow and I'm sure all of nature is celebrating with me.
I'm taking a break from blogging next week. There are too many things to do before the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
