Crossing the bay, slow first
through estuary, then faster above
Unstrung words fill each small
wave and tease
beneath the boat.
Poems yet to be.
Wind blows stronger to meet them.

Happy Friday Everyone:
I’ve been reading lots about the new year blog challenges (post a quote-a-day, a photo-a-day, poem-a-day…) and it’s definitely got me thinking about how I want my blog to be & evolve. We all get our blog stats end of year. For me- I don’t worry about stats so much (though some say I should as a working artist). But since this is more of an Muse’s blog than a marketing blog- it all goes back to ‘what Muse’s do I want to accommodate more of this year?’
While I appreciate the daily habit and constancy in expression (really helps my songwriting…), I only want to post/write when something really stops me in my tracks. I get bored easily too, so multiple prompts (poems, photos, mindful musings- make the most sense to me now. I fear boring folks as well.
What I want more of now is sparks of inspiration (mine & others). And rich presence, captured in poetry, photographs, musings, & music. I do need to figure out how to post better when traveling (just found an app!).
Prompts I like now: Poem a week. Macro Mondays. And I’m starting a new prompt called “Inspired in Oakland” mostly photos that celebrate my crazy city & surroundings. Feel free to send me links to your photos taken around the East Bay (mostly Oakland!). ;-))
