Confession Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, folks! Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to share your sins, and don't forget to reach out to my fellow sinners in The Confessional.




A big wet, sloppy kiss to Kristi, Joseph, Alex, Suzie, Erin, Colleen, Heidi, Stanley, Rosemary, Tom, Heather, and "pubs" for helping me navigate through some difficult personal waters. I'm following the example of Dory from the movie Finding Nemo: "Just keep swimming!"

Two really great pieces of news. One of my poems that was accepted to Drunken Boat last year will appear online this week in issue #10. There's an audio link, too. How exciting! And, Joseph Legaspi and I will be reading in the Joaquin Miller Cabin Reading Series in Washington, D.C., this June or July! How cool is that? And with any luck, maybe we'll get to read at Busboys and Poets.


This is the start of lots of summer travel. Wish there was money to travel, which means all of my summer adventures will be the "shoestring" kind. But I think that's the best way to go sometimes. Nothing wrong with cheap eats and free stuff. I'm just psyched that most of the museums on The Mall are free!

NaPoWriMo is kicking my poetry *ss! It's tough when you're writing to catch up. I mean, try writing three poems in one day. But I hope to be back on pace in a day or so.

That's all I got this week. When you're trying to write a poem a day, that lives little time for chit chat. Happy NPN, everyone!

Congrats on the acceptances, and I hope your waters are more calm now.

Yay for great poetry news. Takes a bit of the sting out of the whuppin' :-).

is my "confession" ... and I am behind, too. Poor hind ends.

Oh Deb, these last few days have been tough. But I'm determined to finish the month with 30 poems.

Will come by to read your confessions soon.

January said...

Collin, I'm in media res, so to speak. But I'll be OK. Thanks for the kind words.

Congratulations! I'm behind, too. Didn't want to include it in my confession. lol But if you and deb are going to play catch up so am I.

January said...

Oh Susan, catching up is so much harder than staying on pace. But at least I'm within striking distance. Good luck to you--keep going!

It is through the eyes of children that we might learn to rally and to explore life as if yet to be experienced for the first time~ a way through and up with hopefulness and vigor. Seize these moments and keep your eyes and heart open to them. I applaude Dory again, and again as do you.
