Monday Miasma: But I Can Still Alliterate

27 Dec

2:25 pm, PST: Monday, 27 December, 2010 – Walnut Creek

Well, dear readers, I have been felled by a cold, not helped by the exhaustion that accompanies a family Christmas, no matter how fun, and the arrival on Christmas Day of college essays that I said I would edit [having forgotten exactly when the child told me he would send them]. I will make this another photo day and tomorrow a word list and again take a five-day weekend, so that I, and you, can arrive in the New Year, next Monday, fresh and ready to go with writing and poetry.

Two hours later after trying to help my niece arrange her flight to Paris [ I can see why writers do not blog during the holidays]:

These beauties came up near my mother’s apartment after the torrential rains in California. There are some fun possibilities for poems here and if you are not feeling inspired go read Sylvia Plath’s poem “Mushrooms“.

And, if all you want to do is stare at the flames, as I did [the real ones] yesterday for quite sometime, that’s alright. This is an energy draining time of year. Relax, recharge. I’ll have a wordlist tomorrow for those who don’t like to relax and recharge! And if I have the energy, I’ll do a roundup of some writing sites.

      Thank you. I am feeling slightly better today [the wish to curl up and die has gone] and I suspect my niece will have a ball.
