Happy Friday! I will be spending my day downtown – prepping for the monthly Salem Art Walk and then participating in it! I tried to get y work into the bookstore hosting tonight’s Last Friday Poetry Group – but no dice. So I will be missing that event again as I man my CC Willow Pop-up. A shame – my buddy Clem Starck is the featured poet.

But first … our prompt.


Let’s go instrumental again. Today’s prompt is the Asian-inspired orchestral Forbidden City by Red Buddha and write where the music takes you. 

The 2018 Something Red Art Walk also ends tomorrow & I need to pick up my Something Red pieces. Which prompts me to post a 2017 Something Red (checklist) poem – Inspired by the music at the 2017 SR Reception

Checklist: Something Red by Ariel


And if you want to buy holiday gifts with poetry or art on it (and support me as a small business), I have the following links for you.
