    2021-01-02 Flip the Day… 🤸

    If you flip the script on this day.. this date… the palindrome enthusiasts find a different day just over 10 years ago. 2010-12-02.  Where was I early in December in the year 2010?  I know this was shortly after I met a person who would change the trajectory of my life. By that time I […]

    2021-01-01 Hurry Up and Wait ⏰

    Or.. It’s About Time. Two days ago I started writing about something that dissolved into a rant about titles and hierarchy and how disgruntled I felt after not being recognized for my contribution in an effort I’ve worked on and care deeply about. I ran out of time while writing and was subsequently told to […]

    2020-12-24 A Perfect 4

    I haven’t put on a dress in a while, but I’m pretty sure size 4 is still what would fit best. On a scale from 0-10, pretty sure my poetry is a 4 too. At least based on all these rejections. Another one popped into my in-box this morning. Like hello… merry fucking Christmas to […]

    2020-12-12 Poetic Rejection

    I woke up at 4:30. Wrote a reply to Mr. SCC, feeling enough time had passed and some response was the best course. If only I could say what I want without giving the wrong impression. And why I worry about that is mysterious to me. I’m my own worst conundrum. I went back to […]

    2020-11-30 Bow for November

    My second full month in my new job is coming to a close. This morning I’m tasked with making breakfasts and lunches for my people and will of course get doing dishes and scooping litter boxes. And I’ll be working on the lit mag some. And hopefully finding time to read and write outside of […]

    2020-11-29 Rounding Up and Rounding Out

    Every morning I get at least two new-to-me poems in my email in-box. About a week ago I decided that since I’m tired of writing about The same-old-same-old AND seem to be Most inspired to write Creatively after reading new material that I would use these little nuggets as a jumping off points for new […]

    2020-11-09 Advantages of Overcast Day

    Today I’m going to wear lounge clothes all day. Enjoy the darkness a rainy day brings. Sit on my couch doing all that needs done nestled with my favorite blanket and pillows. I’ve got plenty to do there, until 3PM when I need to leave to pick my son up from school. The weekend was […]

    2020-11-07 Schedules, Steps, and Submissions

    I woke this morning just after 5am like damn. My email in-box had a message from my husband, sent after I could literally not stay awake at 10pm and had gone to bed. In the email was an itinerary for our day today. Yes.. time slots filled in with activities so we can get the […]
