Things I like

Honestly, it's been a bit of a poopy summer so far. Serious sadness with Ash, litigation with the farmer's market and crazy head with me. It's a good time to take stock of the things that are going well, of which this is only a small sampling: great friends, no, the world's best friends; my boys really love each other; Atti has mad style AND loves to read; early morning sunshine and great animals and lastly, a great typewriter and a porch on which to write. And Jason, always Jason.

I am a git.

Ted Kooser is in Casper, Wyoming leading a workshop as we speak. I blanked on the date and failed to plan for it. I think I am going to hop in the car tomorrow morning and try to catch day two. Ted Kooser! I adore him. I particularly love the book of poems he did with Jim Harrison,Braided Creek .
I wrote a poem yesterday and jotted some ideas for a short story. I may be making too much of that- very brief notes. Eh. It could be something.
