The next Poetry Fishbowl will be on Tuesday, April 5 with a theme of "changing society from within." I hope to see you then!

Poetry in Microfunding:
"Holding Hope and Love" belongs to Polychrome Heroics.  Lakia's counselor worries about her.  "The Door to Nowhere" is a crossover between P.I.E. and Schrodinger's Heroes.  Brenda and Darrel tangle with Evil!Schrodinger.

Torn World writing update:
Approved as canon: "Unicorns on Parade" "Spruce Deer" "Wandering the Heights" (poetry).  Back to me for edits: "Winterheart" (parts 2-3), "Stinging Like Nettles"  "Off the Clock" (poetry).  Currently in front of the canon board: "Ghost Bat" (nonfiction). Drafted: "Like Ash Before the Wind," "From Dark to Bright," "The Inappropriate But Useful Disposal of Lettuce" "A Thin Red Trail" (fiction), "Changes in the Wind" (poetry), "Southern Breads" "Tangleweed Article" (articles), Jularei (character sheet).  In revision at home: "Water Dance," "When the Wind's Teeth Sing," "Raining Kittens," "Finding the Holes," "Broken Hopes," "Brewing Beauty," "Little Paws in the Licenses" (fiction), "The Smallest Invaders," "Raising the Future" "Beach Pies" "Unsolid Ground" "Riding from the Rescue" "To Ride Death" (poetry), "Rammer" (nonfiction).  Currently writing: "Catch of the Day," "A Cold Clear Night" (fiction).

The weather looks nice now, but it's been windy the past two days.  Seen at the bird feeders this week: small flock of sparrows, several mourning doves, a pair of cardinals, and many grackles.  Crocus are done blooming, early daffodils fading but others still going strong.  Currently blooming: daffodils, forsythia, apricot tree, plum tree, violets, hyacinths, pear tree.  Leafing out: raspberry canes.  The first shipment of tree and shrub seedlings has arrived for spring planting.  Hopefully we'll be able to get started on that soon.
