Good Light in the Corner

Seen Reading:

Late morning, at a Starbucks, an older woman with cropped black hair, an ice cream striped long sleeved t-shirt, fuzzy long blue scarf and leggings, sat in a corner comfy chair, with a knitting bag and crochet work strewn across her lap.  The light streaming in from the window must've been perfect.  She warmed her hands with her cup and sipped her beverage while perusing Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout.

What Quote From Literature Inspires You?

A writing friend of mine sent this list of breathtaking quotes from literature...prompting the mutually shared thought, "Dear God, I wish I could write like that."  (Sigh.)  I thought I would share it, in case there was an author or a quote unfamiliar to you, dear reader.  I discovered new gems in the mix along with beloved treasures.  I've already found one new author that is a must read.  (Hint: number 23.)  Enjoy!

A Little Poet Trivia

Did you happen to read the Indianapolis Star online today?  Did you catch Tim Evan's article about all things "official" in Indiana?

Did you take the quiz at the end?  It just so happens that the last question includes a reference to this Indiana poet.  Even though I am NOT the correct answer at this time, perhaps someday, I could be?  What a nice surprise!  How fun is that? 

Thank you to Tim Evans and to the Indianapolis Star for including me in their quiz!

Poems Written with the Outdoors in Mind

Hello to you on this chilliest of chilly days in Indiana. As I write this, the outside thermometer hovers just above 2 degrees.  Brrr!  It is definitely a long underwear, wool socks and sweater kind of day. 

I have good news to share.  Quail Bell Magazine has published two of my poems.  Check them out!  They were written with warmer climes in mind.  I hope you enjoy them!

Apple Blossoms

Last Picnic

Thank you to Quail Bell Magazine for featuring my work.  They have also accepted a third poem which will be featured at a later date.  So stay tuned...
