So it's Friday morning and I'm off to Seattle for a lovely day of friendship and poetry, but I wanted to check in with you here because I've been feeling a bit off-kilter, not just behind the eight-ball, but the eightball spinning in circles.
I have been quite behind since returning from DC. And since I see quite a few of you show up here to read what is hopefully an interesting blog on living & writing creatively, I just want to share my plans so you know what to expect in the upcoming months and seasons.
1) Blog requests - #1 on my list! I have quite a few-- some on contest & open submissions, one on putting a manuscript together, one on FB vs. Twitter & the social networking aspect of the writer's life, one on retreats and what to take, "genre poetry" and a couple other things.
Please know, I haven't forgotten about any of your requests, but realized that my January (and not February) ended up a bit busier than I expected and I didn't get to as many as I hoped (thought) I would.
A lot of my busyness was not related to poetry. And no worries, it's all good things, mostly mom/volunteer/editor/person-in-the-world stuff, just things that have pulled me from my blogging AND writing time. So I'm working to reestablish some time for myself.
But because I'm a Capricorn and someone who tries her best to stay on schedule, I wanted to send my apologies for being the slow responder, the snailmailer in the time of internet, but as you know, life steps in occasionally and does the bugaloo on time, the watusi on my calendar. But, I'm a list maker, so as the song says, "there's always something there to remind me." And the other song says, "All you need is love..."
2) Confession Tuesday - Yes, a fav, I've learned. ;-) I will promise that even if I'm behind in my other blogging goals, I will be here on Tuesday with bells (or St. Cecilia) on. I enjoy it too and it's a nice way to make sure I'm here once a week and sharing interesting stuff.
3) Thankful Thursday: A time to promote another person, website or thing that I have fallen head-over-heels with. Yes, there is so much in this world to love, I expect this to continue to be a GO as well.
So there you are. During these days of time hula-dancing while I'm eating poi distracted by the palm trees and new scenery, I will try my best to make this place, this blog of Book of Kells, interesting.
Anyway, I just wanted to share what is in my brain (coffee, homemade granola, chocolate) with you in case you were curious. Jane's getting curious.
Thank you as always for reading, for stopping by and for the comments (I'm behind on responding to them as well), but they come right to my email box so I love seeing your names pop up.
And to the new people I met at the OWOH (One World, One HeArt) event for artists, hello! Such inspiring artists in this world.
So off again into the world. Thank you all for reading. And sending love, love, love...
There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung. Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game It's easy.
All you need is love (everybody!)...
