Distraction

if I looked into your eyes
close enough to note your pupil size
this would be a distraction, maybe even a call for action
you’d accept this motion by becoming more responsive
with our eyes, with our musings, with our sighs
fulfilling each our wishes, intertwined

Happy Friday and TTOT Day – Can you believe we are already at the end of July! That’s just peachy!

Let’s slice up a bowl of peachy thoughts!

  1. Daughter received injections and is gradually improving.
  2. Daughter is having fun with her art class.
  3. – 6. Air Conditioning! Ceiling Fans! Ice! Ice Cream! That is four thankfuls!
  4. My back treatment on Monday seems to have helped and I have my last one next week.
  5. The nurse for the back treatment is a sweetheart and I will miss her, but not the ouchy procedures.
  6. I have a place to sleep each night.
  7. Sisterhood of the Garden of Neuro group. I feel so much better from interactions with these lovely folks who are about the good vibes of the world. We had a lovely poetry workshop last night. I will probably share more about it later. You can check out the group Garden of Neuro
  8. Books. I know I say that a lot, but I am grateful for books. AND in August it will be time for the Sealey Challenge where you can read one poetry book per day. I did that last year and it was fun. This year, I am moving and may have to make some adjustments. I want to finish some books I have started and post reviews. If I can do that for August, I may call it a success.
  9. Building a better boat. I am not a sailor nor a shipmate in the for reals world, but I am working on an ongoing effort to make this part of my world a better place. I notice there is a stir of people who are also looking at ways to create positive change. I am grateful for the support.
  10. YOU! What kinda jam will you be making with your harvest? Let’s hear about your week!

Poet Talk with Bingz Huang

I was so fortunate to interview the wonderful poet and gentleness ambassador Bingz Huang for the podcast. Here is the PODCAST LINK, which is the audio of this video.

I met Bingz via the Garden of Neuro and I read her book.

This book is one to read! It is about nurturing. It is about gentleness. It is about being gentle with yourself.

I am excited that tonight in the Garden of Neuro, Bingz will be presenting a workshop with one of her poems from the book. It is a workshop for women at the Garden of Neuro, a #Save and Brave Space for women.
