My blogging moratorium during July is broken one day early

Yes, that's right - I couldn't stay away for a whole month.  Fellow author and poet Emanuel E. Garcia had written an exciting poem - one whose moment was now.  And so I've started blogging again a week early.  The post of the poem, The Downside to an Earthquake is here.

see below for original post:
(I am very sad to say that due to illness in the family, and a number of other projects, I have decided to call a moratium of poetry over July 2013.  After this date hopefully some of the other projects I'm working on (not to mention the other projects/events I'm goofing off on, including Butterfly Creek Theatre's Pantio, Beauty and the Beast and Au Contraire), will be finally complete, my child will be well, and I can once again enjoy contributing fully to the Tuesday Poem Blog.)

cheers for your support everyone - I know I don't say it often enough - but you've all been a real inspiration - so if anyone else wants some of that inspiration why not go and visit the Tuesday Poetry Blog and feel the love :)

  1. Enjoy your time off. All good health to the family and good luck with your projects :-)

    1. thanks Helen, you've been a wonder and I've really appreciated your support. Fortunately the health side of the equation is starting to look better, and now I'm looking forward to knocking off the editing on 3 projects. Why is it that editing is all about panic and procrastination?

      Anyway cheers, again :)

  2. Be well! Looking forward to more when you're back!

    1. Thanks Michelle, your support has been amazing. :) I can't wait to be back too.

  3. Just a quick word for anyone who actually reads comments that Michelle Elvy and Helen McKinlay both have amazing blogs of their own at -


    They are not only amazing poets in their own right, but they are wonderfully generous and perspicatious authors, and I am humbled by their dedication and vitality. :)
