Ten Things of Thankful – April 9 2021

Happy Friday and TTOT day! I found my graphic for National Poetry Month. I has saved it and couldn’t figure out where and there is was in a special folder for April. Duh… Let’s see what’s on the thankful meter…

  1. I found said graphic. Isn’t it pretty. This month is all things poetry. It’s been busy already, but I always look forward to it.
  2. The say to not stare at the sun because it can mess up your vision. After the good news I could not share, I looked at the shadows, the clouds and saw some glimmers of silvers linings which showed me that, a too bright sun can shine the light but you have to pay attention to the clouds. That’s the silver linings part, the clouds showed me that the news I could not and still cannot share was not to be and I am thankful that I was able to make a choice about the decision.
  3. The Poets Coffee Table Talk turned out beautiful. It was well attended and the sharing, the poetry, the important messages about social justice all came together to what I think is an increased awareness.
Susi Bocks shared about her anthology and some of us read contributions.

4. Heart Beats is published and there are two poetry readings on Saturday. These will be by contributors to the anthology. I am thankful how this is all coming together and I am excited to bring all this talent together under one virtual roof. And I am grateful for all the poets for their contributions. Here are the links if interested.

5. I had my annual physical and my numbers were pretty decent. A couple of tweaks needed, but over all, it is not bad. And I have shot number two out of the way. I have a lot of tiredness from it and soon this will pass.

6. The collaboration is coming along nicely.

7. I have been reading a lot of poetry and doing reviews. How would that not be a huge thankful?!!

8. I have contracted again this year for judging a competition. I am grateful for this opportunity.

9. I am grateful I don’t have to go out in the pollen. Not everybody has this choice and I pray for them to be able to manage each day.

10. YOU! What’s your thankful? Please do share either in comments or by posting a blog post. We love to hear good news. Bernie is all ears!!

  1. wordclouds! I totally, for whatever reason, loves them word clouds (‘specially the animated ones)…
    Good that you decision was, not always apparent to us at the outset, the best for you. Stones and ponds and ripples are natural to the world, sometimes we make a choice to refrain from an early start on the process and it is better… a still pond is as meaningful as one full of waves (and wavelets)
    Great news on the health front.
    We’re still weeks from ‘the Time of the Yellow Wind’*
    Have an excellent week.

    We live, for all intents and purposes, in a pine forest… the pollen during a dry Spring can be impressive, literally a yellow wind coating all.
