My dear blogging buddies, Meet Sparky. He knows how to relax.(I don’t.) However, this blogging break is not about relaxing, it is about catching up, and mirgrating, like the birds, back home to Reno. Besides, my publisher is anxious for me to complete the re-write of my next novel and I’m anxious about trying to spend some time marketing my first one, Winter is Past.
So, I’m planning a 2-3 week hiatus from my blog, but will continue when I have the chance to read posts on dVerse and, hopefully, to write some new poems myself.
This beautiful desert retreat used to be my escape for writing but, as we’ve made more friends and as I’ve begun to try golfing, it’s been busy. Some days, I understand Emily Dickinson’s need to close herself in her room and dedicate her life to her creative muse.
Last week, Dani, of Haiku Love Songs, featured me and my poetry on her ambitious project for the month of April, in which she interviewed and featured poems of poetry bloggers, using the alphabet. I’m honored she chose me for “V.” (I didn’t have much competition :0>) Here’s the link. I encourage you to take time to browse her well-thought out blog and to meet some other poets and enjoy Dani’s work, as well.
Happy May to all of you, my poet friends.
