To tell you the truth, socializing has taken up a lot of time recently. I can always talk myself into going out because human relations are what count in this lifetime. So why say no to a nice lunch?
No doubt, you heard about the shooting in Kalamazoo, MI. Elizabeth Kerlikowske (who wrote two poems in Solace in So Many Words) has written about the tragedy in her hometown. The poem is called “It’s Kalamazoo’s Turn, the Facebook Post Says.” It appeared on the NewVerse News site February 23; here is the link.
I received an email from Ralph Murre the other day; after four years he is stepping away from Little Eagle RE/VERSE. The site has published 646 poems by 202 poets and been visited over 84,000 times. (Little Eagle’s RE / VERSE will remain on line as a resource; it just won’t be updated.)
Thank-you Ralph Murre. I was a little late to the party, but I do appreciate that he gave one of my poems a second chance and I am grateful to be able to read so much wonderful work by others.
Monday is the deadline to submit your sonnets to the 2016 Poetry Challenge, sponsored by Highland Park Poetry.
While I am talking about submitting, I wanted to encourage you to shoot for the moon once in a while.
Why not submit to The New Yorker?
Go for it.
I haven’t had a lot of time for photography or gotten many good pics. Here are a few that reflect recent activities.
Peace, love and solace
