Meet Your Old Self

Sometimes, you have to remember that you are more than enough. I was sitting on my living room couch (which I love!) thinking about transitions and - more to the point - thinking about the stuff that I have not accomplished.


I have recognized that I write well, but I have not recognized that I write well enough. Those of you who are writers know what I mean.


For some reason, I decided to read a 2011 commencement speech that I offered to Goddard College Individualized MA graduates. As I read it, I reacquainted myself to myself. I appreciated what I said about Hopkins, Bambara, and the students who were launching themselves away from Goddard having reacquainted themselves with themselves.


Sometimes, I forget that I am a writer, a thinker, a person who loves the world and the people in it. This speech reminds me: Windovers, Whole Truths & The World of Tomorrow.

Here is a poem I drafted today. I'm reading the raw draft. When I type up a revised version, I'll post it. https://static.wixstatic.com/mp3/f1d3cb_080ca0fe413b40368563965422000d98.wav
