Notes on the week –
Morning coffee watching the maple tree brighten, thin, then lose its leaves.
The walk across the street especially the encounter with aspen groves, white birch groves, and maples.
The times in Norbert’s cabin, watching the light change in the small yard.
Watching the tire swing drift in the wind as the leaves, past their peak, let go.
Jerod, and Write On folks –
Thank you for this valuable writing week. During the week, I worked and reworked a new play, on commission from Interlochen Arts Academy. This was the perfect place – far enough away from my home base to avoid distraction, but connected enough to have video chats with director. My claimed alcove in the upper room was quiet, warm, and productive. I also wrote some poems, inspired by the bronze and cay work at the Juddville studio just down the street.
Your support makes this literary art possible – it helps support progress, and it offers the aesthetic setting that nurtures good work. I am so grateful for this time. You meet a real need.
