Busy, busy, busy! And happy about NaPoWriMo…

May is half spent and I’m just writing a follow-up to NaPoWriMo, but don’t be fooled by my tardiness; I loved it. I didn’t come anywhere near a poem a day, got too busy near the end of the month to invest any time at all, and didn’t post everything I wrote, and that’s all just fine with me. I’m always moved and amazed by the fact that when we—I’m in the mood to use the collective here—actually set aside the time to write, well, writing ensues! And it’s one of the experiences in life for me. So why not write more often, more consistently, with more purpose? Great, great questions. Lovely weather we’re having. (Uh huh.)

GeraniumI’ll also admit that it was a rather heavy month for me, which the poems helped me to process. A lot going on with family, news of a dear friend’s health challenge. And that’s life, right? I want to post one more poem that I worked on during NaPoWriMo, and I’ll do that soon. Meanwhile, I’ll close out this particular project while waiting for clarity on what’s next here.

It’s time to make some summer travel plans, for one thing, which will mean tiiiiiiime to write that I haven’t had since last August. Sounds delicious! We’ll see.
