my wish list for no time in particular, but please make it very soon:
time to gather my thoughts
time to pull together a collection of unpublished poems and publish them (from the 3 folders full that are languishing on my computer)
time to find out how this blog works so I can post some audio posts of poems from my mini-CD Holding the Song (it is sold in old cigarette machines at the Casa Populo), from Wiredonwords.
time to find some really great photos of my kids and hubbie and dog and cats to post here
time to sort through the pile of files and notes from the Feminine Mysteries class for that lecture I'm supposed to be planning for september 08
time more time, time alone, more time alone, without interruptions from bathroom renovations, new house plans, landscaping plans, all the trappings of our new 'dream home' that need planning and my attention to come into reality, (not to mention two teenagers with long wish lists)
what am I saying? we dreamed that house into being, and it's being rebuilt now, as we speak. I will have a room with a view of the lake, I will have a room with a desk and a chair and a place to dream and J will have a music room to create in too
my wish list is that in between now and then I will make the time to pursue my creative dreams
and bring them to reality (and not run myself to the ground with 'tasks')
all you who read and comment on my blog are helping to bring that closer, because you feel at home here, and encourage me to continue,
thank you from the bottom of my heart and inkwell,
ps I want to post my book Little Mother on-line, cause it's out of print, but not sure I can do that - anyway I'll start with a few poems at a time from that new mom with baby at home phase that so freaked me out, and a poem about women's friendships which sustained me through the light and dark (tune in next week). the theme of the book is the light and dark side of mothering and includes a birth journal, pregnancy poems, sex poems, nursing poems, grieving after miscarriage poems, birth in the car poem, etc.
pps wish I had had an on-line community at that time of writer/moms like you
