Slice of Life

Last May I made a commitment to join the community of poets that write and share regularly. It has changed my life. 


Instead of scratching my head and spending time thinking of what to write in my quiet times, I am full of ideas. So many of these ideas are taken directly from this community. And, my daily writing has increased in quantity and quality.

In January, I entered a postcard exchange coordinated by Poet Jone MacColloch for bloggers in the PF community. What a treat! For days I have enjoyed beautiful notes and gifts of poetry from such creative people. My life is richer for writing alongside these folks.


As I received postcards I would immediately use them as bookmarks….finding them all to get a photo was a little bit of a challenge as my reading materials are in every area my life is. But here are at least most of them.

A slice of my life is much, much richer from these gifts.

A goal I hold for the Month of February is to participate in A Slice of Life similar to how I joined the PF community.
 It’s truly better for me to be positively writing than wringing my hands about what in society plagues me.




Special thanks to the poets that have been the rock stars of my mailbox. Their names are enmeshed in this post

  1. Linda, I find that our sisterhood bonds has strengthened through our writing group. Since you were not on my list of Postcard Poetry Partners I am going to tweet you my card just because I want you to have it immediately. Enjoy your day.

    1. I have learned and grown so much in this community of writers. I learn so much from what YOU share. Someday, I'd love to meet and have a writer's retreat of some sort for the PF community.

      Very happy that Jan Godown Annino sat me down and made sure I understood how to connect. She's a rock star to me as well.

  3. My postcards are all in a little pencil bag my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas that says Write On! They bring me Joy! Committing to writing together will makes us stronger and happier.

  6. Thanks for making me a star. You shine brightly too.
    This week was Langston Hughes birthday. I didn't know he was known as the O'Henry of Harlem.
