For anyone reading this Blog for the first time

For anyone reading this Blog for the first time.

Generally, I write in Series of Poems, see the Covid Series from last year,numbered 1 to 40, There are other Series throughout the years.

Currently, I’m working on a Series on 1-6-21 but I’m listing them alphabetically. “May you live in interesting times”, as they say.

Some of these include old Poems, which I had been able to scan, but most of what you would see now is recent.

I’m also working on a Play but I have not entered this latest one on the Blog yet. I tend to save them on Celtex, etc.

I’ve been sending out both Plays and Poems and have received some very encouraging rejections (not this time but send again). There’s no real support group for writers sending out their work that I’ve been able to find. If I had any organizing energy left,(my history includes activism and Poetry organizing), I’d organize one.

I’m currently having an issue with remote printing on my printer. If that’s my worst problem in 2021, I’m having a good life. If needed, I can always buy a new printer or continue to use my wife’s desktop,

I’m retired and live with my wife, our chickens and dogs, in Swarthmore.

My daughter lives in Minneapolis and also writes.

The Terriers name is Alphie, he insisted I mention.

I’m feeling like I’m spending my time doing what I really want to.

Whether anyone outside my immediate audience reads these words shouldn’t really matter. I only have 13 subscribers to my Blog. they’re loyal. I’d like one more as 13 is unlucky.
