Herbal tea and wisdom
Up early (at 4 a.m., though just now on the computer) and energized to write - last night was the monthly "micro-writers group" meeting - myself, the erudite Mark Smith-Soto, and the Lannan Award-winning Sarah Lindsay (congrats much in order). Over Wild Berry Zinger and Petit Beurre cookies shattered by transatlantic luggage handling, we wrestled with our words. Mark had a stunning rewrite of a poem ... Sarah had another exploration of the quirky and little-known. This group is so nourishing, as is the online "Queens Poets" groups that shuffle into new patterns every so often, new readers, new approaches.
