Confession Tuesday: The Catching Up Edition
It's been way to long since my last confession or even my last blog post, but I've been working, editing, and writing a lot.
I confess I have many new poems, but need more time and space to sort through them.
I have many things I want to do with my next manuscript, but need the headspace to see the full vision. Sometimes that comes in summer. Sometimes that comes in fall when I leave normal life for a writing residency...which I am doing this year.
I confess I ate cake for breakfast yesterday. Citrus Sunshine, which is lemon cake with orange buttercream frosting.
I confess I don't feel bad about it. In fact, I feel as if I live in a magical world that sells Citrus Sunshine.
I confess many things have been pulling me in lately.
I am distracted by birds, by seals, by the outdoor world and all its inhabitants.
I am distracted by the shapes of clouds, the color of the sunset and how light is happening earlier and the world is sunnier.
And when I think I can't find something else to fall in love with, I do.
And here's another thing that pulled me in--
It's a video by Doug Gautraud. You can vote for it here. I'm assuming it's based on biography, but I haven't been able to be sure. But he seems trustworthy, and I believe the Truth (with a capital T) behind the story, authenticity, and giving instead of getting.
It's less than 5 minutes and will add a spot of beauty to your day.
