Our snowfalls here on Vancouver Island are rare and usually don't last very long. But we are not very well prepared for it, so it causes havoc on the highways. Several major arteries were closed yesterday, and some ferry crossings were cancelled. In the top photo, someone tried to insert some humour into the situation.
We hope you are all staying warm, where you are, and that our friends in the southern hemisphere are not too hot. Did you catch Rosemary's feature on Friday? She featured a friend of hers, Melbourne poet Ken Smeaton. I loved his description of the poem as "the last, great, non-commercial art form." Very clever.
On Monday, we have a very special feature for you. Annell Livingston, Barbara Mackenzie, (one of our very first members at Poets United), and I are chatting about the need for Grandmother Wisdom in today's world. We think you will enjoy this important conversation, which is one of my favourites of all the Monday features. Do stop in and read.
On Wednesday, Susan's Midweek Motif will be: Fun! I think we will all have fun writing responses to that prompt. Smiles.
Let's waste no time diving into the Pantry, and seeing what goodies await. Thanks for being here. I can't think of a better way to spend Sunday morning, than reading your poems.
