The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, September 6 with a theme of "pets and livestock."
There are four epic poems in microfunding: "Restoration
" tells how the radiator dragon came to live in Monster House. "The Accidental Hero
" follows Aldornia and Zenobia when one of Aldornia's relatives unexpectedly appears in the Temple of Golden Light. "Igor's Creature
" is a mix of horror and science fiction with a large helping of sociology and a wry twist of humor. The epic poem "A Periodic Table of Elementals
" is ahead of production.

It's been a fairly quiet week here. We did the third knot magic class, and I baked a ginger gold apple pie. The weather has been very dry, so not much is growing.
