Why, Hello! This site has been on hiatus for months now. I’ve been uninspired to post and uninspired in general. But I’m hoping to start again, especially as April is Poetry Month. Also, this year marks the ten-year anniversary of Solace in So Many Words.
By submitting this photo, Laura Rodley provided the gentle nudge I needed. Thanks!
Peace, love, and solace
