Wear sunglasses to the post office...
Quiet Saturday morning- sometimes quiet is good. Sometimes the silence echoes reverberate empty.
I generally never want the weekends to end, but sometimes I wish they would hurry along into another phase. It's a contradiction I know.
The picture with this post was taken a few weeks back - it is a courtyard behind a bank in downtown Kansas City. I took it on a lunch stroll. I think of it as water art.
Finished reading a novel last night. I've produced some small written pieces this week that I am happy with and they really did for the most part come without feeling like I had to squeeze them from a near empty tube of words.
Best quote I saw this week was advice from Dana Goodyear - one of the 18 debut poets of 2005 that were featured in Poets & Writers.
"Wear sunglasses to the post office. In other words, try to protect yourself from other people's disbelief."
