October 4, 2021Grief And Acceptance

If you follow more than one of my sites, you know that I like to reprint poems in different ways; and try new ideas with design, colors, and images. As I review my archives, I may see that I can edit a poem better. I also reblog posts, and you are welcome to reblog too.

Large Print Poems is now in its second year. I place these posts in all kinds of Categories and Tags, including Assisted Living, Nursing Homes, Education, Language Arts, Photography, and Libraries. This is a free resource that is growing slowly. Sometimes large print is best for me now as well.

Perhaps on some Sunday mornings, I can review the week in a post here. The blogs bring together my experience over years. Times I have been away – and then so easy to begin again here when the time is right. One step at a time.

Thank you and blessings,
Ellen Grace Olinger

Afternoon Study Time

I read poetry journals, and sometimes may read a poem several times, before the language flows for me. The days vary. And I select different books from my collection over the week, and read a few poems by different authors. I think about place, and where the poets are from. So much in common.

Karl and I went to Walmart in Sheboygan yesterday, and then enjoyed a meal at home.

Today I am reading from books I ordered from different small presses. I often read book reviews in journals.
