I’ve been on a writing hiatus since the beginning of August in order to facilitate moving my family into a new home. Only this weekend are we finally moving things from storage to the house. Tomorrow will be the third and final day of loading and unloading a 20-ft truck and not enough room in our small house for all of it to stay. It’s time to simplify and rid ourselves of so much clutter. A yard sale will happen next weekend, and probably the following weekend or two as weather permits. We have way too many things to go through to do it all at once.
While I intend to write intensively in October, in the mean time I will publish some poems here over the next few days that were written earlier in the summer.
I’m officially back on duty as Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Friends of the Orcas Island Public Library (FOIL). After a leave, I can now attend the monthly board meetings and volunteer again during the week. Next month is our annual meeting for all members and there’s a bit of work to do.
Remain resonant for some poems to follow!
