    2022-11-01 Latest and Greatest Austin Adventure Wrap-Up

    It’s 10:34 on a Monday night… but not any Monday night. It’s Halloween Night and just also happens to be my last night in Austin. I’ve been here longer than I usually stay. Normally, I would leave on Sunday or Monday at the latest, but I wanted to ride out the holiday down here and […]

    2022-09-12 A Play-By-Play of My Own Personal Inferno

    The days come and go. Things happen that feel *noteworthy* but I’m not taking notes. In my head, a dozen times, I’ve thought about posting those pictures I took at UNL last week. I got invited by my darling daughter to read poems in the sound booth for an assignment. I’d never been in a […]

    2022-09-03 The One About Pleasing People

    Historically, I finish things I start. Unfinished business really tugs at my brain (and heart) and even worse if that involves tarnishing my reputation in someone else’s eyes. For all the times I’ve tried to throw my hands up and say “I don’t give a fuck what other people think” I should have learned that […]

    Today’s craft talk newsletter was inspiring. The guest writer waxed on about another writer who wrote with joy for writing and, as it seems, a zest for life itself. Its aim was to remind us that we sometimes have to get away from the notion that writing is grueling work. Let’s be honest, it can […]

    2022-05-08 A Million Little Things…

    Lately I’ve been wasting time watching more shows than I normally do. When I say “normally” I mean that normally I don’t watch shows at all unless Jim and I are sitting down for a chill hour of TV in the evening. And when I say “lately” I suppose I mean for the past nine […]

    2022-04-19 Two-fer Tuesday…

    Recently I had the opportunity to spend a few days with Kate Gale. I wrote about this, of course, and you can read that here. Part of that experience was watching her reading in Lincoln and then participating in another reading and hearing her read the same poems in Omaha.  She’s touring to promote her […]

    2022-04-13 Who Cares?

    Today I’m raging about my missing iris plants and asking myself who the fuck in my life will actually care about how I feel about this or anything else. Really.  I’m upset that I haven’t written anything decent in months and who cares. I’m angry that I’m the only one in my household that pays […]
