I won special mention in the WC for my poem. I wrote it in bed this AM and got it posted in time to enter the competition. Here it is:

an ode to the vanishing summer

I am very excited. It was fun to write, and apparently fun to read. I am pumped!
Full text of the poem is:

(an ode to vanishing summer)
(25 lines)

Where did summer go?
I'm not ready for snow!
The leaves will fall,
WINTER will call;
where DID my.summer go?

I'd gotten used to heat,
to walking in bare feet!
My shoes are back
to make big tracks.
Where did the summer go?

And, soon we'll all wear coats,
and store away our boats!
No more swim floats
or picnic totes.
This really gets my GOAT!

Oh, where did summer go?
Warm halcyon weekends, past!
We must adjust,
put up no fuss,
anticipate ice crusts!

Where did the summer go?
And when will it COME BACK?
I'll miss it so,
regret it, though
cocoa softens the blow!

I have slipped into a daze of unexpected comfortable normalcy. I have a good writing routine going which gives me productive, relaxed writing time, whicH Is GREAT for my soul.

Happy Monday to me, I am already overwhelmed by the week and days behind, and it's not even noon on Monday!! I need to settle down and get a grip or I will burn out again....Can't afford that dysfunction or delay or lack of forward motion! OFF TO BATTLE!!

I have let this blog get behind again under the guise of getting ahead with other stuff. I am now taking a great NH class in poetry. It seems like it is going to be great. It starts 9/21. I am looking forward to it very much. I am learning at long last how to use the "favorites" to organize my stuff. I thought I knew how, but didn't. With the Android, it is imperative that I get a little more organized; otherwise, this site is overwhelminglyl huge!!

I once again have more freelance work than I know what to do with. I am in a better place in my head now, and believe that I can handle it.

Rick has a new, better job as well. He is in training for the rest of this month, and then goes full time 1:00 PM--9:45 PM M--F, No more of this strange-hour crap.

Sander is no longer working at THE JOB FROM HELL. She is a different and happier person now that she is out of that mess! I am pleased for her.

So, no more behind for me. I intend to be regular with this and to add to it at least once per week!

I am being delightfully overwhellmed by all of the birthday wishes, GPS, and even clean dishes are coming my way on this auspicious day. 53 is really no big deal, but it is fun to have everyone making much of me just the same. I have heard from my best friend from junior high, friends from high school, college, my old church, and my new life! I think, a friend from every year of my life since I was 13; the last 40 years!! What an amazing joy. And I consider all of these wishes from friends my biggest treasures!! [:o}

What a great feeling--I have finally cleaned out my emails on this site! I can now go in each day and browse with just new stuff in front of me. A liberating feeling, for sure!

I have had a revelation: I have to curtail my natural wordyness if I want my entry to show up fully on my RSS. There seems to be an unstated word limit beyond which the entry cannot go. I will need to watch that!

I have figured out a way to have this journal show up in my RSS feed on my Android! That gives me a sort of continuity with myself over the past months wherever I find myself. I have become inseperable from the Android. I sleep with it, use it as my back-up word processor, use it to play all of my music, have a great Bible app on it to allow me to do my daily quiet time...I can't say enough about it. It is everything I have ever wanted in an electronic device: music, videos, training, spiritual, recipes, social media--you name it, and it's there. I had NO IDEA what I was getting into when I adopted Rick's phone! And now, I have even found a way to connect with WDC and odesk. I am running my entire life out of a small black box! It even takes pictures!!! [:o}

UGH! For some reason, electricity here is not a given today! We obviously have it in some rooms but not all...my office is dark and cold! My trusty kitchen PC is up and purring, but my main one is not....I guess the pull of our new $10.00 heater was too much for the circuit. It puts out amazing warmth for $10.00, but is obviously too much for something! Ah well....c'est la vie! Or, in American vernacular, s--t happens!

I have been remiss at writing for the last few weeks. I have written thousands of words for my freelancing, but have recorded very few thoughts of my own.

Rick's new job has gone temporarily full time. As in 12-hours-a-day-full-time! It is making me nuts. Slowly and steadily . I am just grateful that I have this refuge in here to work in. It is probably not overly healthy to spend so much time in one room, but it is what it is.

Perciville, my dear car, is too sick to fix. She is fixable but it will cost $2900 to fix. So, we are car-less. And looking. I would like to know that I can leave the house at least once per month. It makes me sad because we have just found a neat church and now can't go. . . .
