I am thinking a lot this week about
what I will contribute to the
Sizzling Summer Super Release
Book Launch Party
on August 3.
EVENT is SPONSORED BY Patty Fletcher’s
Tell-it-to-the World Marketing Organization.
I am preparing my presentation for the event, I thought about how my readers might like to have a closer view into the life of an Author. They might enjoy hearing more about what a typical day is like in my personal and writing life.
I created a voice recording this morning in which I talked about what I am currently doing and I discussed what I am thinking about as I go through a normal morning. But after I listened to the recording, which I liked, I could not add it to this blog and I could not add it to FaceBook. Both social media venues did not allow me to add it – because it is an MP4 – recording! Now, how is that for a big surprise today. I am disappointed. I am especially surprised because I pay a LOT for both of my blogs since they are PREMIUM BLOG THEMES. Stupid planning, I’d say, about both FB and WP. .
I began to seriously consider speaking this morning while I was outside working in my flower gardens.
As I watered the gardens, pulled the weeds, and began to sweat in the early morning of this beautiful Sunday, I decided that you might enjoy listening to me as I describe a little bit of my life in rural western Pennsylvania. This is the place where I live and where I write my books and create my mixed-media fiber art. From this rural location, I produce writings and art that is enjoyed by people all over the world. Isn’t that amazing! But I could not post the voice recording so you cannot hear it.
Nevertheless, “Yes, it is a blessing” to share my life with all of you this morning.”
today, I am sharing the second photo from my new book: Star Signs: New and Selected Poems.
Each of the 4 sections in that book include a special photo that illustrates a theme or image mentioned in one of the poems.
“Of Smoke & Mirrors,” photo by Matthew Barry – glass artist, Colorado Springs, CO.
Used with permission of Matthew Barry.
This photo was shot by Matthew as he was making the glass art form.
While he works at the glass making, he takes photos of the process and finished pieces.
The photos are works of art and stand alone –
I selected this piece to go with my poem, “Of Smoke & Mirrors,” and was delighted when he agreed to allow me to use it in the book. Thank you Matt!
Matt is my grandson – so I get an inside view of his work when I have visited his studio.
Fire, flames, torches, tools, white-hot glass, and Matt choreographing the movements as he works with all of the elements.
