me what's next
I'll still pay attention
to my compost pile & notice
things like that purple yarn & the placement
of those grapefruit in relation to the
torn up bread bag &
And I'll still
explore text & words
& that SAT project, which I began
in 2019, but which continues as my college-bound
children clean out their rooms & purge
those dreaded practice
And I'll continue
to wonder at what emerges
from those 5 gallon buckets I collect
each week from Umpleby's Bakery & Cafe
& honor their waste by giving it new
life both in the ground and in
my camera. Every week
it's something new
And I will be
motivated by the novelties,
like these three croissants, but also grateful
for the familiar smells of spent coffee grounds & eggshells.
Who knows what 2020 will bring, but I will keep
exploring what my compost has to teach
& hopefully, in the process, inspire
joy and transformation
for you and me.

It will include links to recent blog posts, updates about my work, and, best of all, inspirational action prompts for you to explore your creativity and passion for the world you love. Oh, and I promise I won't share your information (that would be so uncool) and I don't actually do promotions, but that text is required.
