Loved hosting friends during Thanksgiving weekend. Great catching up with family members we were able to see. Enjoyed a few movies, including two of my favorites, Home for the Holidays and Elf. Ate bountifully, sampled some yummy wines, and ate some more. Also got out for a walk or two. Thankful on many fronts.
And glad to be back to reading and writing this week.

Something told the wild geese
It was time to go.
Though the fields lay golden
In doing a search of the full poem, I came across several clips of musical performances, which I’m especially enjoying given that my (dare I say) beloved iPod went kaput yesterday. Among the clips, talented young performers like this district choir (where are you from exactly?) and this middle school choir from Maryland, music by Sherri Porterfield. Happy listening and stay warm!
This week’s roundup is over at Diane Mayr’s Random Noodling. Go check it out!

I try to write every day, though some weeks, that’s easier than others. This morning, I have an unexpected block of free time (well, it’s never “free” — there are a million other things I could be doing), so I am already thinking of a long-abandoned, never-finished poem that I’m going to dust off and see what might be there to work with.
Enjoy your day. Hope it includes unexpected time to write or read, listen to music, call a friend, or just do nothing (or something close to that).

Have been majorly immersed in revisions lately, just now coming up for air. I think the perfect end-of-week celebration would be to slide on over to Poetry Friday and enjoy the poetry party. For anyone who’s never visited Poetry Friday, I encourage you to check it out—links to all sorts of wonderful poems, thoughts on poetry, reviews, and sometimes even a game or two. While I won’t be posting this week, I will be reading and joining the conversation! This week’s roundup is hosted by Teaching Authors. See you there?
