BULLETIN: Will any of you be going to see the parade in Springfield tomorrow evening? It’s the first parade as part of the annual Birthplace of Route 66 Festival and will begin at 6:00 coming up St. Louis Street toward Park Central Square. I’ll be riding in a white Mustang convertible so wave if you see me.
Yesterday I reported my failure to concentrate the previous day on a poem I was writing for a new collection. I had a small pity party and went back to work.
I’m happy to say that within hours I was back in the groove and the resulting second try was a better poem and will go well with the rest of the group. Sometimes going back to the well for a second effort pays off even more than expected.
So lest ye think I’m singing the blues, nope. I’m a happy man and ready to get back in the wheel today.
