I'm genuinely surprised by how many biblical references pop up in my own poetry. Obviously childhood religious education left a pretty deep impression.

Alas, just a sample.  I can't find an online recording of the whole song.  :-(

Hanging in there! Today is radiation zap #8, and I'm tentatively scheduled to begin chemo next Monday.

Grateful that Mercury finally turned direct again this past Saturday. Enough with the miscommunication & confusion!  :-D

Shifting my focus outdoors. Flowers are planted (but I had to sacrifice all veggies except red bell peppers and the blue-podded shelling peas). I have a new rocker on the front porch and a new swing on the back porch. I'm starting to enjoy watching the neighborhood.

Still wrestling with that unwieldy chunk of poetry. I may end up with two self-published books: one for what I consider my truly "good" (i.e. conventional) work, and one for the more irreverent pseudo-poems. I'm making slow but sure progress....

I'm beginning to suspect that the best advice I ever received was Remember to breathe. Let's all take a deep breath right now and get centered. ;-)
