Poem of the Week, by Octavia Butler
I’d love to see you in the Zoom room, January 7-13, in our first-ever, informal, kick off the new year with joy and freedom Write Together session! Seven days of morning and evening prompts, join in for any or all. Each session recorded in case you can’t make it. Click here for all the details.
One of my children, then tiny, was scared of an upcoming small adventure. I remember the troubled but resolute look on their face as they recited advice from their father: “If you don’t try new things, you can’t have new fun.”
Much has changed in my life this year, some joyful, some painful, some nuanced and complicated, and all of it inevitable because change is inevitable. But the thought of our own small selves as capable changing everything we touch…what a sobering, powerful thought.
All That You Touch, by Octavia Butler
