Today was the kind of weekend day that I wish I had more often. Got to hang out with my new surrealist landscaper (aka The Colt), rake some leaves, run around outside with kids and dog, shoot a few baskets, soak up a little sunlight. Now I still have a bit of time left over to chill.
Tomorrow my summer Women Writers class begins. I'm about ready to start teaching again. I like to be in that groove. Plus, I don't have many casual clothes. I have to go shopping one of these days, too. Have I mentioned how much I HATE shopping? Does anyone else hate shopping? I wish I could buy clothes online like I do for my kids. 18-24 months? Sold! Now let's get it in every color and submit order asap.
I am also ready to get back to writing at least one poem a week. Last week I was too overwhelmed. I'm going to write some poems inspired by the book above, Along the Ohio by photographer Andrew Borowiec. These photographs make me feel something every time I open the book. I want the book in the same room with me when I sleep. It's that good.
