A Bit of Housekeeping

VoiceCatcher is an online journal of Portland-area women writers, and I have a non-fiction piece in the Winter 2015 Issue! You can read it here and then have a look around.

I will be participating in a reading at the Multnomah County Central Library in Portland at the end of March, along with other contributors. I find I am a lot more nervous about getting up in front of people than I used to be, since I do it so seldom these days.

One day, maybe I'll go back to theater and play quirky old ladies. Until then, I'll live vicariously through Nels, who has surprised us all with how good he is in his school productions.

I thought maybe I'd close this post with a poem for Valentine's Day, but I have zero poetry knowledge, and reading love poems (even the classic ones) on the internet today just made me cranky, because none of them said what I wanted them to say.

But I still thought we should have a poem, so here's something  from Aaron Belz's Glitter Bomb.

Your Objective

In a given situation
Your objective should be
To act as much like yourself
As possible. Just imagine
How you would act
And act that way.
A good rule of thumb
Is, try to be similar
To who you really are.
But keep in mind
That there's no way
To perfectly replicate
Yourself at all times.
