What costumes shall we don, my sweet,
To roam the dark, haunted street
And terrify the souls we meet?
Hmm, let me see . . .
perhaps a witch
To cast a spell that makes them itch,
Roll their eyes, scream and twitch!
Yes! I’ll go as me.
Here’s the link to the lovely Renee LaTulippe’s site at No Water River. She finally took off her makeup so we can see her in her natural state: a vampire. Or is that vampirette? Either way, she’s bloody delicious.
If you care to take a look, she explains all in her post and even includes a shot of her 5-year-old twins casting rather anxious looks our way. Playing with Renee is always a treat. What a talented lady!
Some of you have already discovered Renee LaTulippe’s FB post on Friday about a bit of Halloween silliness we engaged in to celebrate this bootiful season. She plans to post the video on Monday so stay tuned.
We wrote the poem together and Renee scripted, directed, and produced it. I wrote some of mine during the day Thursday while talking to kids at the Children’s Literature Festival of the Ozarks. I stopped at one point to hold up my phone to show them that creative types are always at work, even when they’re at work.
Check it out on Monday. If you like it — and who doesn’t like Renee! — pass it around.
BULLETIN: That Renee has done it again. For a fine interview of Joyce Sidman, visit Renee LaTulippe today at No Water River. Click here: http://www.nowaterriver.com/poetry-month-2013-the-ants-by-joyce-sidman .
Here we are with only a few days left in this confused month of April. Next week I’ll post the Word of the Month word for May. I’m taking suggestions today for what the word will be. Post your word in the comments below and I’ll choose one for May.
Until then, enjoy the final days of Poetry Month. If you haven’t posted a poem yet for April, there’s still time. Remember, the word is FRAGRANCE.
San Antonio was full of teachers these past several days. It was a pleasure to see so many friends and share new good times. I also made new friends and will look forward to seeing them again in the future.
I’ll work back onto a regular schedule tomorrow but for now I’m urging you to go see Janet Wong’s wonderful interview by Renee LaTulippe at No Water River.
As always, Renee’s work is sensational! But then again, so is her subject!
