Poetry, Photography, and a Poem for Memorial Day
Today, I honor those who have sacrificed for my freedom and I thank those who continue to serve this amazing country. A moving poem (with audio), "Facing It" by Yusef Komunyakaa: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/177382
I feel quite accomplished today. I've cleaned the house, done a little light bulb replacing and grocery shopping, baked a cake, watched a movie, revised some poems, and worked on a submission packet to Yes, Poetry.
Now, I'm off to figure out my new Diana Mini camera (one of the most unique and exciting gifts I've received) and embark on my photography/lomography hobby. I'll keep you updated as I head out to capture the world in a lens. (And check out the cool little lady below!)
