in the stars

A month ago I first time ever entered  a poem in a contest. I got my first rejection yesterday.  Coolio.  It was a rather nice rejection.  One of those it just isn't right for our rag but do enter something else soon things. It was free so what the heck.  Feedback is priceless. Then  at an open mic this week that I read at, I won a $25.00 gift certificate to a sponsoring restaurant. "Who me?" I said.


I appear to have drawn some dissenting feedback on my rather bland blog.  It's not really what I'm going for here  and usually I try to stray away from those heated tidbits that draw controversy.  But some things are just are so glaringly bizarre I just can't help venting my humble opinion. And I am always open to hearing the random takes of others so I guess it was my lucky day.

I also got a neat little side job taking wild west photos at a local restaurant.  One of those period dress up deals.  It takes a bit of costuming knowledge, some photography skills, and an ability to do touch up stuff with photoshop. And it's part time. Now how cool is that.  And I get to dress up cowgirl style.  Wonder if they will let me ware my 6 shooter?

And the whipped cream on the coco was; few weeks ago I snapped some shots at a poetry reading and sent them out to the poet, just a freebie on my part.  I just like to take pictures and the lens I was using (100mm fixed focus) produces such rewarding photos. The poet in turn gave me a chrysanthemum clay bowl he made.  Such a kind thought.

What do you think?  Bonaroo week or what!
