Happy spring, and happy Confession Tuesday everyone! Share a little bit of yourself with us, and be sure to check out your fellow sinners in The Confessional!
My mom’s having surgery tomorrow. Please keep her in your thoughts. I’m flying to Virginia on Saturday and will be down there with my parents for almost a week.
This is one of those only-child moments I’ve dreaded for as long as I can remember: taking care of ailing parents. *Sigh* It just would be nice to have a brother or sister to share my emotions in a time like this. Nuff said.
I'm compartmentalizing more emotions now than I can count. This is hard.
Gearing up for National Poetry Month and writing a poem a day. What can I say? I'm a glutton for punishment. Besides, I subscribe to the "success in failure" theory. Even if I only one-third of my poems become drafts, that's 10 poems I would have never written without the push.
Currently, I'm working on a few poems, but nothing I love enough to call a draft. April can't come soon enough.
One nice thing happening now is that I'm starting to put together press kits. And, yes, I'm finally starting to contact organizations and institutions about readings in late 2009 and in 2010. It's exciting to think that I'll have the opportunity to travel and meet people from different parts of the country--because of poetry! Of course, much of this will be on my own dime, but I like to travel. So being able to travel on behalf of poetry really is a wonderful opportunity.
Wanted to watch the season finale of Jon and Kate Plus Eight last night, but I'm not sure if the show aired as scheduled. From the promos, it looks as if Jon and Kate's marriage is in trouble. Hope they can get past their difficulties and rekindle the love that brought them together.
OK, that's really sappy. But I'm rooting for this couple and their family.
