Friday Night Thoughts

I have started working on my second poetry book. It is a slow start because I am not sure where I am even going with it. There's no theme yet, just words. Hopefully before long my muse will give me directions.

I write poetry because there is a deep joy inside from the process. I spend a lot of time alone and poetry is my companion along with all my books. I can put whatever I am feeling into words to either lift my spirits or get the junk out to clear my head.

There are so many poems on my blog, Confessions of a Laundry Goddess. I could pull from them to create a collection. I suppose I should sort through them and take a lot of them down, but for some reason I am not at that point yet.It is a road map of my growth. Those first poems sound a little silly now. 

Hopefully in a few months I will be ready to publish my book. For anyone who has never done it, the poems are the easy part. It is all the other things that ruffle me. When I get it done, I'll be back to let you know.

Good News Today

Today was good news for my oldest daughter, Dawn. She took a pet scan today and the results were really good. I truly believe dealing with some issues over her ex husband really opened up the avenues of healing. She not only kicked him to the curb a couple of years a go, but tossed some reminders in the trash recently that was a real hallelujah moment not only for her, but for me as well. Since I am staying positive I won't write what I really think about him. Plus that would probably require a strong language warning to boot!

Here is a song she wrote recently. She says it is a work in progress. Keep going, keep dreaming, keep loving my beautiful child.
