Day 28 – Counting today, three days left of Poetry Month Writing challenges … oh my.
The ‘puter gremlins are active but fortunately, I’ve got WordPress on my phone.
So … Today’s prompt is easy to assume … Today’s prompt us “Saturday” –
And I hope your Saturday is as sunny and easy as mine has been (minus the non-cooperative lap-top. I spent the morning on photographing Gaiety Hollow’s gardens. As you recall, I participated in a reading there 6 days ago. I had left my camera & phone at home. But Bobbi, a docent there, knows I am CC Willow, an artist, and granted me some time this morning to grab some reference photos!
Speaking of lovely times … It was great doing the Salem Art Walk as Ariel, not “CC Willow”, this time around. I hosted the Poetry Open Mic and Anna Cottom (of Prisms Gallery) has posted some great photos and videos of the readers on Facebook!
I especially appreciate that one friend who came out is a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time -, Sarah Katreen Hoggatt. I knew she was an accomplished photographer & editor … I did not know she had FOUR poetry books out!
I have an article due in a month for one of the local papers – to be a focus on a local poet … Guess who I just picked!
