I haven’t posted any poetry here for a couple of weeks. I drove back to Buffalo for the first week, and we’ll be returning there in September for my daughter’s wedding. I enjoyed the time spent with all of my children, but the main purpose of the trip was to take a couple of refresher dance lessons with my daughter. I now feel confident that I’ll have just two left feet for our father-daughter dance.
The week was pretty much poetry-free, with the exception of one poem written before I came home. I think this is the longest I’ve gone without writing a poem in the past four years. If I post that poem, it will be later, since it’s pretty event specific and may evolve over the next six weeks.
In the week since I returned, I’ve been working on a personal project that’s very important to me and needs my full attention. Based on something I wrote twenty years ago, it’s primarily prose, and it’s about time I got around to working on it. It should be done later this week, with just 5% of the work remaining – mainly photo editing – but I’ll wait until the end of August to discuss it.
Meanwhile, I haven’t been doing much reading, and I’m reminded how much I rely on outside sources for inspiration. I have a lot of catching up to do at WordPress, but I should be back to writing soon.
