Velvety Goodness

Is there anything more velvety than a horse’s nose? (and additionally, is there anything more able to seek and blobber around until it finds the slice of apple it hopes is in your palm than a set of horse lips?)

Probably not. The two horses and I enjoyed the sharing of a big carrot and an apple, aka horse candy. I was surprised how quickly they came over when I pulled my car over since I had nothing but pats for them yesterday.

From the Quote Box – Purpose

Nothing contributes so much to tranquilizing the mind as a steady purpose-a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye. — Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley 1797-1851

PoPoFest 2016

Even though the Poetry Postcard Fest technically ended with the end of August, there’s always a grace period afterwards where cards continue to navigate the postal system and folks catch up from various things that interfere with daily life and writing during a thirty-one day span. Some folks aren’t quite ready to put down the pen and so they continue to fire off what we like to call “bonus cards” – maybe not to your own group of 31 but pushing outward to others. And, let me tell you, finding a bonus card in the mailbox as August fades in the rear view mirror is a mighty fine thing!

All this is to tell you that I’ve added my own cards to the navigation bar above. If you click PoPoFest above you’ll see the three years of outbound cards for your amusement and edification. If you’re a 2016 Group One participant and didn’t receive a card from me, please be assured I sent one. Leave me a comment or shoot me an email and I’ll get you one, digital or reprint!
