Overdue Journal Bits


  I’m a little overdue for a for a posting of journal bits so here goes. The following are a sampling of my recent journal writings.

I keep a common journal. It includes journaling about life, writing drafts, quotes I find that strike my fancy. And occasionally one of my completed poems after many rewrites

May 3 – I was not good to writing over the weekend. I neglected it and did not especially realize it until today.

April 26 – Macaroni and cheese must be the ultimate comfort food of my generation. I think there is a poem somewhere here.
