What an evening. Thanks to my dear friend, Linda, I met US Poet Laureate, Tracy K Smith. She was a delight, sharing her thoughts about poetic forms and poetry that might have power to save a life. #tracyksmith #detroitinstituteofarts #blackhistorymonth #detroit #poetry #uspoetlaureate #girlfromthemitten

On January 23, 2018 from 7-9, I'll be at the KGB Bar in NYC to celebrate the launch of the new Peacock Journal Anthology. I will read my poem "Gladioli" that appears in the publication. If you plan to be in the city, please join us. I'd be delighted to see you. #peacockjournal #kgbbar #nyc #poetry #goingtonyc #manhattan #girlfromthemitten #literaryevent #literaryevening #beauty #grateful #gratitude

For those lucky to have a long-time love in your life, the poem below may be the best present you can give. 
The line breaks are probably off in my cut and paste, but this Mary Oliver poem appears in her most recent collection entitled Devotions:

I HAVE JUST SAID  By MARY OLIVER

I have just said  something
Ridiculous to you  and in response,

your glorious laughter.  These are the days
the sun  Is swimming back

to the east  and the light on the water
gleams  as never, it seems, before.

I can’t remember  every spring, 
I can’t remember  everything-

so many years!  Are the morning kisses
the sweetest  or the evenings

or the in-betweens?  all I know 
is that “thank you” should appear  somewhere.

So, just in case  I can’t find
the perfect place- “Thank you, thank you." #lovepoem #maryoliver #devotions #thankyou #gratitude #grateful #bestpresent #longtimelove #happyholidays #girlfromthemitten

2017 Annual Holiday Mystery Trip. Light lunch, poetry, and storytelling, followed by an evening at Greenfield Village. Christmas carols, Santa, a delicious meal at the Eagle Tavern, fireworks, and plenty of cheery company helped to make it a night to remember. #2017 Christmas Mystery Trip #greenfieldvillage #greenfieldvillageholidaynights #mysterytrip #holidaynights #girlfromthemitten #poetry #storrytelling #eagletavern #friends #cheerycompanions #fireworks

When Gino Vannelli's Brother to Brother album came out in 1978, I probably listened to it hundreds of times. When Christopher and I married, our first dance was to "People I Belong To" at our reception. Tonight, we saw the artist perform it live. Pretty wonderful. #ginovannelli #peopleibelongto #brothertobrother #girlfromthemitten
