Over the river, across the bridge to my friends house I drove for a morning coffee, conversation, and creating. Nothing like a good bit of girl talk to make one feel better. I've let the "discussion" go for the time and have turned my thoughts to more fun things such as ribbon, lace, charms, words and journals. I've been spending time with poetry researching poets online and reading bits of their work, it has been a good learning experience for me. It is amazing what can be said in just a few words put together in the right order. I'm reading Poemcrazy by Susan Goldsmith Wooldridge-it is excellent. It is fun to read for how she plays with words and makes them come alive. My plan is to read some poems by e.e. cummings and that is what I'm off to do.


  1. Lorrie..poetry reading sounds so wonderful..

    do you ever go to the blog Soul Aperture by the adored Christina....her writing and words and photographs send me to the moon...

    sending love,
    kary and buddy

  2. ee cummings, I carry your heart, is my favourite poem. Hope you enjoyed reading his poetry.

  3. Hi Lorrie - THANKS!
    Thanks for missing me - you are the sweetest! I know you can relate - I've just been in one of those moods where I've neglected my blogging.
    Thanks my friend!
    A big hug.......

  4. P.S. You gave me the push I needed today :-)

  5. Hmmmm...I've been thinking about poetry lately because I don't really have much connection to it. But I've been thinking of reading a poem before I start painting, sort of as inspiration. We'll see.

    Love those colors on your photos!! Happy, cheerful and springy. Love, Silke

  6. What fun! Glad the magazine arrived. Hoping you didn't have it already and enjoy it!!

  7. Love those fibers and ribbon. Poetry - a good thing. I think I should get out my favorite poetry book... Thanks for the "reminder".

  8. Sounds like such a lovely day! I gasped when I saw that first picture of the colorful ribbon! I HOARD that stuff, and use it in everything! One of my fave poets is Mary Oliver. Have a good day!
