January (and Beyond) Sneak Peek

Christmas on a Monday really shortened the last week of the month. All those things I put off for that last week end up being squeezed into three days 🙂 So some days I ended up doing that day’s blog post on the day & not the night before or even the week before. Christmas takes over. If only the house would decorate itself.

I’m not changing the posting frequency though just the timing of the posts. Monday will be my massive music collection accompanied by red pictures. Tuesday will be the continuing serialization of Lazarus Kiss – I had hoped to do it in 52 weeks but felts 1500 words or so a week was enough as opposed the 2000 a week. Wednesday I’ll talk about my poetry – I know ti sounds egotistical but that’s the only way I can people to listen. Poets I know ask about my writing then talk about theirs. Wednesday photos will be shoes.

Thursday will continue to be new poetry – still working through the 227 Rules for Monks. These pics will be a variety of things. Friday will be whatever’s on my mind when it isn’t something prompted by Disability After dark. Photos will concentrate on fabric.

Projects for 2018 include editing Cold Dusters for blogging once Lazarus Kiss is done, looking over Picture Perfect & deciding what my hero’s next adventure will be. I’v also got two events booked to attend. Playground Conference at the end of February. I’m got the ultra early bird rate registration & have booked a room at the hotel too so I can enjoy more of the evening content – travel time is exhausting & distracting too. Of course I’ve booked my flight & hotel for Capturing Fire 2018 after I confirmed the dates June 8/9. I’ll be at the same hotel as well & will be in Dv June 5 – 12 to do some tourist stuff – like see some animals in the zoo (as opposed to my hotel room 🙂 )

A Pillow For Your Heart

use this spoon

as a pillow for your heart

use this fork

as a map to your desires

use this moment

as a sign of providence

use this coffee mug

as a fresh start

use this chair

as a dream factory

use this opportunity

as an excuse to do more

use this laugher

as the next step upward

use this suitcase

as key to memory

use this snowball

as the love of your life

use this lap top

as the keeper of the flame

use this smile

as a sign to move on

use this handshake

as the fulfillment of a promise

use this bed

as the collapse of civilization

use this protractor

as the window to rain

use this bus

as a memorial of when you cried here

use this email

as a thirst quencher

use this consequence

as a refusal to go back

use this kiss

as a demonstration of potential

use this book

as a doorstop

use this take out meal

as a confirmation of your hope

use this loss

as a chance to be free of me
