While I haven't actually looked back on my batch, I have thought back. Fear I've been somber writing in a haze of woe-is-me-isms. I must apologize and redeem. Here are things in my life I am grateful for: My children My husband My friends My family My dog My poetry Open mics Poets Good books Dreams Good coffee Salted Margueritas Medium steak Spanish rice When my children hug me without alterior motive Blue jays singing at my window Spring His arms; eyes, hair, taste, smell, kisses, words, poetry, company Humor, passion, passion, passion, passion. . . My passion for him.
