There is always something gorgeous

13 Mar 2014 / in Musings

Some weeks are more about doing poetry than writing it. Having it? LIving it? Sponging it up and sitting in it? I am having one of those weeks. Though I did move ahead at least 2 stanzas on 2 different poems I am trying to finish for upcoming performances. And I’ve been reading my new […]

Love and Mezcal

Ah….. Mexico! Mexico Mexico Mexico. I am in love with Mexico. And people and poets and mezcal and rancheros and limes and dancing and love. Just got home to snow dusted Halifax two days ago.  I was only in Mexico for one week but it felt like much much more. Maybe that is because IT […]

Brewing

13 Mar 2014 / in Musings

What have you been up to all winter?, they asked me. Oh, you know, not much – cracking the code of the gods; turning to face myself in a chaotic fog of mini epiphanies and tears and fears; falling in love; things like this. Not blogging, that’s for sure… Yesterday, I went for a spiritual […]

To the Water
