Yes, it's come to this. I've been holed up writing for days and am now resorting to cat selfies for entertainment. Lol

So excited to be part of this contemporary theater production!
The Huntington and CalArts Center for New Performance, in association with the Shanghai Kunqu Troupe, present Nightwalk in the Chinese Garden, created and directed by acclaimed playwright Stan Lai. The site-specific work, written exclusively for the Chinese Garden, premieres at The Huntington Sept. 21–Oct. 26, 2018.
Set against the mystical backdrop of the garden, lake, and pavilions at night, the play weaves together elements of the famous 16th-century Chinese romantic tragicomedy The Peony Pavilion with tales of early 20th-century California. During the month-long run of the show, a small audience of 40 individuals each night will be able to immerse themselves in the performance, moving through the garden as the story unfolds around them like scenes from a Chinese scroll painting. The play is performed in English with some passages from The Peony Pavilion sung in Chinese to the original music.

I love seeing the words "The End" on a manuscript. Just finished a new short story based on my time in Ghana, Africa. "Learning To Swim."

You can't blame the writer for what the CHARACTERS say. Truman Capote

I get in trouble with things "I say" while still in character. Lol

On the way to Palm Springs to introduce Jack, (my new dog), to my mom. Hopefully it will go well. It's hotter than a furnace there right now. Flashback to the 60's. My Grandma, Mom, little brother, David.

Burningword Literary Journal will be publishing a poem of mine that is very dear to my heart. I wrote it for my estranged daughter Katie Rose. #estrangement #poetsofinstagram #loveandlight #dearkatie #iloveyou #shereelapuma #shereewrites

I apologize to everyone I've not answered these last weeks. I've become a hermit, on a creative binge.
I sent out two full length books of poetry to publishers today and submitted another dozen pieces to literary journals.

I have over 100 Submissions out now.

I wrote this last year for my youngest daughter. Somehow feels appropriate here. Thought I'd post it for anyone grieving a lost relationship.

Losing My Best Friend

it’s late, hours since
your last call.
still, dark, silent
feels like hell
alone in this space.
sleep
eludes me,
drowning
in a memory
while a blue
moon
paints the sky
with my sorrow.
i weave your flaws
into silk
wear them
over my heart.

Poetry without truth, is like a rose without thorns.

Still pretty,
But sometime the real beauty comes from the things that can make us bleed.
