garden after rain
leaves on wood path
and red begonia

Last week, I enjoyed creating two more boxes of book donations for Goodwill in Sheboygan, which included poetry journals and art magazines. Perhaps some may read poetry and discover poems that have meaning for them. Or learn more about history from a memoir. Discover a simple gift for someone.
As book stores closed in our area, I was happy to see good collections at thrift stores and other stores. Library sales. The books may travel to another state or country. Be read and shared again. Someone may decide to subscribe to a small press poetry journal. I know I cannot read or reread “everything.”
Next I plan to wash some old clothes, sometimes from thrift stores too, and donate them. Cotton that has been washed many times may become quilt pieces for someone.
You can tell that I am catching up with some simple tasks. One step at a time, and creative work too. Much is in the past now, and I am grateful every day, and look forward as well.
Take good care.
