Everything looks like a poem…

…to me now! Went to a CA Writer’s Club meeting yesterday. The speaker was Poet ~ Devi S. Laskar ~. http://www.devislaskar.com/ She had us do some fun writing exercises. I’m not really even into poetry, but everything I see looks like a poem to me now.

” In magnificent glow…”

“… I would rather be ashes than dust. I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze, than…be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.”  Jack London

Going to the library

I always find something inspiring at my local library, even if it’s not something to read. (like this Princess flower bush planted next to the parking lot.)

Patience and Fortitude

Those are the names of the two lions guarding the great New York Public Library, where I went on a recent visit back East. Patience & Fortitude; good advice for life and writing!

Who is this woman?

Went to the Monet exhibit in San Francisco. The woman in the painting is Monet’s wife. This image is still haunting me. What’s her story?
