Bloganuary Prompt for January 30, 2023

What would you title the chapters of your autobiography?

My work is here, with blogs. I do not have the goal of a memoir, but the large print chapbook that Karl and I created from posts at Quiet Christmas Poetry in 2014 continues to reach readers.

The Quiet Christmas Poetry site is a free version of our book. We donated copies to libraries and other places. Karl’s winter Lake Michigan photo is the Cover Art.

Encouragement

What’s a lie you tell yourself?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 23, 2023

I have read many books about creative work. As with bloganuary, there is encouragement to be creative and then confidence grows. I often say that my blogs are informal, because that means this is a place to practice and grow. Reading is important, and rest as well. Health first. I can see different creative chapters here over the years. Grateful every day. Thank you.

Favorite Author

Who is your favorite author and why?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 21, 2023

Jan Karon’s novels are wonderful – characters, stories, craft.

Last year, I discovered The Mitford Museum site. The museum is in Hudson, NC and was founded by Jan Karon. The beautiful site includes more information.

And I have written often about poets, especially Luci Shaw. And I am also reading more books by Ted Kooser.

Many who create blogs also offer their books. Grateful for all. I also learn about poets and books from reviews in journals, including Time Of Singing and Modern Haiku.

These are only a few examples.

HARVEST

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126: 5-6 (KJV)

My acrostic poem for HARVEST from August 2010 is a favorite poem.

What chore do you find the most challenging to do?

Hope to work more in the yard this year, at the pace that is right for my health now. Began again last year, with some work and an old chair for rest. Careful about the sun, and I wear sunglasses. Our gardens are mostly perennials. These are good years.
