It’s been a hectic summer. We have just a couple of weeks left before school starts again. My daughter is going to be a high school freshman! There will be so many changes for her. We are excited but also wish summer would last a little longer. In the meantime I am seeking quietude.

Because of busy days and the fact that I am sleeping well at night I haven’t been writing daily or even weekly.  I have been revising and submitting work, but I am just beginning to refocus my efforts to produce new writing. Now I’m challenging myself with exercises and so far have produced three new poems in the past few days.

Tonight I made curried lentil and spinach soup.  It was super delicious!  I absolutely love and crave soup daily—which is why I will soon begin a blog called One Hundred Days of Soup.  I’ll keep you posted.
