Loss of electricity and other juicy details...

I never realized how addicted I am to electricity. Lost power for over a week and am just now returning to my normal life. I was in the midst of a 30:30 and now have to start from scratch. If I were optimistic, I would look at it like this: well, now you'll have more than thirty poems done when you finish your new round!

Unfortunately, I'm a pessimist.


But on a happier note, I came back to the world of power to find this:

FRiGG Magazine with the fabulous Helen poems by Meridith Gresher and some of mine.

elimae has some great poetry up as well, including the work of Arlene Ang and yours truly.

Received two acceptances, one from Ascent Aspirations Magazine and one from Tipton Poetry Journal. I'm sooo thrilled. :)

See what happens when you lose power for a week?


I guess I should stay off more often...though most of that work was written while I was virtually connected.

Am loving this off to surf!

The new issue of Eclectica. And fish.

The new issue of Eclectica is up(!) and the editors have been kind enough to include my word poem This Woman in the Sewing Room. I'm pleased as punch to be sharing space with Arlene Ang and Michaela Gabriel.

Today I bought myself a Betta fish. My family's fish family has now grown to three. Replaced the poor deceased Goey (Named by my youngest because he said the fish "goes") with Goey #2, a much larger feeder fish. And I have wanted a Betta fish for soooo long. I guess dreams really do come true. *snort

Am on day 7(?) of the latest round of 30:30. I'm pleased with some of the work so far. Yesterday, however, was a misery, as my muse turned her back so completely on me, then would turn around and entice me with ideas I wasn't quite ready to create yet. I was reduced to asking my husband for five words. Liked the results, though. Perhaps he is my muse? I think he just might be. Awwwww, isn't that sweet? I can hear the jeers now. Yes it is sweet. :)

Happiness and insanity all mixed up in a bucket...


Just received an acceptance from elimae which I'm thrilled about. Very happy to be included...the issue with my poem "Apnea" should appear soon!!


Just started a round of 30. Phew. Don't know if I'll be able to do it this time as I have soooooooooo much going on right now. But of course I can't resist the impossible. ;)
