Mostly, my blogging days are behind me. (I mean, 14 years is a pretty strong run though, yes?!)

Sending you all love xoxoxo

Poems, Submission Call & a Quote

I keep starting blog posts and not finishing them, so I'm just going to share that I recently had 2 poems put out into the world:

You can read and watch a video of my poem, "I'm Supposed to Cry on Thursday" at The Screaming Sheep.

My poem, "We're All Born into this Purple Friday Night Chaos" is on page 21 of Peacheslitmag.

Lastly, you can read the most recent issue of Dirty Chai here: I'm super proud of the fiction in this issue.  The issue, in my opinion, is the best collection yet, but since I'm editing the fiction: READ ALL THE FICTION IT IS SO GOOD.

Also, Dirty Chai is open to submissions for Issue Six.  It is a themed issue: ATLAS/STRUCTURE.  Head here for more info.

Basically if I haven't been doing mom/family stuff- I've been doing art stuff.  Which doesn't leave much time for blog stuff.

Please forgive me?

I recently read "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lammot and would like to leave you with this quote,

“Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: they feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It's like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can't stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.”
