    2021-12-09 Random This and That Thursday ✍🏻💊📖🤷‍♀️…

    Today I’ve been working on a variety of things and it’s mostly good and I haven’t even had to leave my couch and that’s fine with me.  It’s mostly been communications related but I did take a wee break in the middle of the day to join a creative writing session. That was nice though […]

    2021-05-18 Music as Inspiration and Other Rando Crafty Thoughts…

    I’ve had my new phone for over a week and finally.. FINALLY.. got my music library loaded. So now I’m officially down to using one device daily. 💃💃💃 This morning, instead of picking a playlist, I’m listening to the ultimate shuffle—all the songs that are in my library. Another advantage of my new phone is […]

    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 […]

    2018-09-21 On Inspiration and Nostalgia

    Some days I think about writing poetry and I’m all like “I got nothin”. Other days I start thinking about life and my history and the music in my ears and everything seems like a poem begging to be born. I’ve been around the block and I’ve experienced a lot of shit. Some of it […]

  • 2018-06-29 Part 2 (the Rest of the Story)

    Where oh where did I leave off? Oh yes faithful happy-hour goers at the Railcar catching up over delicious cheeseburgers and glasses of wine… …Soon after the second glass Sam and I parted ways. I was on a tight schedule to get to my next event by 7PM. I scooted my booty downtown so I […]

  • 2018-03-03 Uninspired

    Last night I could not even get through like five pages of my new text without 1). Having my mind go off in several different tangent directions about the subject matter (Poetry as Discourse) more I want to consider as it relates to the text and 2). Wanting to fall asleep. Because that’s what reading […]

  • 2018-02-10 Finding Inspiration and Motivation

    So far today I’m pretty uninspired. I was awake by 6am and did a little gathering of statistics for Work and then got my daughter up for drivers ed this morning. The class is 5 hours in the classroom today followed by 2 hours behind the wheel with an instructor this afternoon. That’s a full […]

  • 2017-10-20 Inspiration On the Path

    I’m walking on this path of life and declared my purpose to be the search for inspiration. Sometimes the road is long and boring and sometimes there are waves of wonderful things to see and touch and hear and taste. So much that I can’t possibly consume it all and not miss something. Yesterday was […]

  • 2017-10-09 Another Look at a Familiar Book

    Over a year ago I was given a book called “Madness, Rack, and Honey”. It’s a collection of lectures from a famous poet who now teaches for an MFA program at Vermont College, Mary Ruefle’s. I started reading the book and then stopped. I then dumped the guy who gave it to me. In return, […]

  • 2017-09-27 Answers From Within

    I was left to my own devices for most of the day yesterday. I was left alone to choose what I wanted to do without any influence from the outside world. It was a day of following my internal compass and I followed in that direction both physically and mentally. As I sit here now, […]
