Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! It may be something in the weather (or just the crazy that is 2020) but I’ve been finding myself reaching more for comfort food. Weirdly, it was my husband who reminded me how nice a bowl of cereal can be. He treated himself to a special brand that doesn’t mess up his blood sugars. I couldn’t resist picking a box of my childhood favorite, Life cereal, and having a small bowlful here and there.
I’m thrilled that this indulgence hasn’t affected my weight at all but paired with a good cartoon has helped lift my spirits when needed. I’ll be sure to have some handy when a new run of Animaniacs comes out next month. How do you like to indulge your inner kid?
So let’s take a look at the week ahead. This Wednesday, Rosemary will be offering the chance to try some found poetry (which might or might not be an erasure poem). Or you may write on the subject of finding or losing, or about erasing something.
Now it’s time to indulge our poetic feelings. Sprinkle my Sunday morning cereal with your poetry or prose, fiction or non-fiction, old or new. Just remember, one entry per person and keep prose to 369 words or fewer. Have fun!
