We did two miles around the quarter mile loop. For Barry's little legs it must have seemed like ten. Over night showers left standing puddles amid the grassy areas. The wooded area seemed alive with fowl. That I could identify - both male and female robins and a male cardinal. There were many others that I was uncertain about but it was soothing to hear the chirping and feel the wind on my face. I of course will likely pay later for sinus allergies.
No breakfast before I left. Came home and made one lonely waffle and had sugar-free Log Cabin syrup atop it.
Before I settle in for a bit of Saturday writing, I have a few items from around the Internet this week worth mentioning. It seems to have been an especially good week in terms of blog content for many of the blogs I read routinely. A few items I'd like to direct readers to in the event you've overlooked or otherwise missed:
- After the Artist's Way - Portrait of a Sometimes Poet - Bird Flight Studied and Simulated I found this video fascinating!
- Advise to Young Writers - an interview with Susan Rich for The Writers Connection. Like her take on dead poet mentors.
- Jeannine Hall Gailey's Things I'd Wish I'd Known When I Was a Younger Writer. I would add to her list, I wish I had started writing at a younger age!
- An earlier voice of Kelli Russell Agodon at Mediterranean Poetry
- Red Shoes by Terresea Wellborn. Love this poem!
- Global Words For Change - Diane Lockward
- Bringing a little research to your poetry - Kelli Russell Agodon
