Complete NaPoWriMo (write a poem a day in April) 2014
Untitled

April is the coolest month, bringing
old friends out of the woodwork, their
mystifying memories (it
never happened that way) -
let me not to the marriage of two minds
leave mapquest directions -
amnesia kept us warm, huddled
over its low fire, feeding
by hand an utter belief in,
on sins of omission, but now
it’s warm, miracles sprout, what a sight to see
poppies poinged through the cinderblock.
Oh yeah, April is the coolest month,
even though it’s confusing and sad to be happy
that you can’t speak or see for the glare
because the sun has emerged beaming
[insert Sanskrit here]



post random questions daily and see if anyone plays with me and answers them :) (read all 192 entries…)
Now that Mardi Gras's over,

do you observe Lent? In what way? Are you Catholic?

I am an unabashed cafeteria-style spiritualist (yes okra please) and this year I am observing Lent in small ways (although no Ash Wednesday visit to Church or penitent grey dust on my forehead), my reasoning being the following: I have celebrated Mardi Gras in one way or another every year of my life, so it is only right to include Lent.

My parents were Sunday Protestants (er, that was after they were Sunday Unitarians) and I still remember asking them as a child – since I had many Catholic schoolmates – if we, too, gave things up for Lent. I recall my mother saying with some aspersion, “Only Catholics do that,” and so for years I bore the distinct impression that this practice of “giving up” things or habits “for Lent” was in fact rather flamboyant. LOL ! Leave it to the Protestants. (who eschewed interior design yet preserved such grand old traditions as burning people at the stake in a public square)



Schedule myself within an inch of my life.
Done!

Sticking to it is a wholly separate goal…

Fortunately I’m a bit of a masochist so there is some hope of my doing so; although part of me abhors a schedule :P
