On turkey, art and letters

If you have been here before, you may recall a series of unfortunate events last year when this blog disappeared for a while. In the downtime, while Google negotiated to buy the site back from an Internet opportunist, it lost momentum. I got out of the habit of blogging weekly. In a phrase, things fell apart.

Since then, I've been reevaluating the direction I'd like to take here. I am still interested in children's books - both from a literary and artistic point of view - but I'm now focusing on writing longer fiction and fine art. More on that to come...

I think the process of transitions is a good thing. I hope you will agree.

On the subject of Thanksgiving, here's a silly poem I wrote that captures some of my feelings about this most delicious holiday:

********************************************************************


Thanksgiving Day

Turkey dreams
Intrepid schemes.
Painted platters
Family matters.
Wild rice
fragrant spice.
Party dresses
Kitchen messes.
Pecan pie
I don't know why.
Turkey dream,
Whipping cream.

*

 Happy Thanksgiving!
