Hello friends and fellow Bloggers,
I hope you’re all doing well on this fine Tuesday morning.
America was bathed in the lunatic light of a full moon last night. I slept the poorer for it, and traffic on the way in to work this morning was ridiculous. After going to bed at 10:00 PM, I awoke at 1:23 AM, 2:26 AM, and 3:30 AM (my alarm goes off at 4:30 AM weekdays), and when I wasn’t awake, I was plagued by vivid, freakishly weird dreams including one of those waking dreams in which the immediate environment intrudes on the dream and makes you feel as if you’re awake and experiencing something impossible. I apologize for withholding specifics, but modesty constrains me.
All that to say I had intended to write a new poem today in honor of the first of May, but I’m so frazzled that I seem to have not the slightest shred of creativity hidden up my sleeve.
What I do have to offer are two new words I encountered in my April reading, batteau and helot. If you don’t already know one or both of those words and are interested, they’re listed alphabetically on my page A Writer’s Reliquary.
I hope you all have a lovely day filled with joy and inspiration.
Take care, be well, and happy Blogging!
