The AMAZING Laura Purdie Salas is hosting Poetry Friday this week.
I invite you to partake in all the poetry goodness!
Today I am Wee-visiting some Wee-Sources to give you an update.
💟 In June I told you about a Wee-Source for FREE international, daily magazine of haiku and micropoetry called tinywords.
The editors say this about their journal:
"Our goal is to publish excellent poetry whose ambitions and effects far outstrip its small size."
They are now accepting submissions, through the end of August, for their 20th anniversary issue.
To submit haiku, haiga, or other short poetry, use the form here: https://tinywords.com/submit/
Got a tiny poem in you that you want to share with the world? Submit!
I joined (there is a fee) the August group of Time to Write: An Online Writing Workshop for Teacher-Writers and I have to say I LOVE it!
I'm trying my hand at a non-fiction STEAM article - something outside of my comfort zone. Just having dedicated writing time with a kind and supportive (appropriately socially distanced) group has given me the confidence to try something new.
I invite you to check it out!
💟 Also in June I told you about my empowering and inspiring friend, Kathleen Pickrel and her book It is What it is...Now What?!: A Guide for Getting From Where You are to WHO You Want to be
Well, Kathleen has started the free Becoming Congruent Book Club. The first book she is featuring is The Happiness Advantage: How a Positive Brain Fuels Success in Work and Life by Shawn Achor.
The first meeting is on Thursday 13 August at 5pm PST/8pm EST
After you sign up (it's free!) you will get a Zoom invite and some questions to ponder as you read.
Here is the Facebook link for all of you FB peeps.
For timezone reasons I will be watching the video replay, but I will be reading along!
With the state of world I know I could use some help with happiness right about now. Couldn't you? Join us!
💟 Last week I shared my broken arm with you. This week I am happy to report that I am already out of the cast - they took it off on day 6!
I went to physiotherapy today and it is feeling A LOT better! I just have to remember to NOT lift anything with my left arm for 5 more weeks...
Thank you for all the kind words and well wishes for my speedy recovery! It worked! 😘
💟 And finally, I am Wee-visiting this picture of my two girls.
The wee baby is my Maureen being held by her big sister, my Colleen...17 years ago!
How is it possible that our children age, but we don't? 😉
HUGE happy birthday to my daughter Maureen!
Today's tiny poem is about my not so tiny (because she is 17!) daughter, Maureen:
a world traveler
at just seventeen
grateful and kind
her intellect keen
