Winterfaire 2017 is still running, and currently has 105 comments. \o/ If you have goods or services for sale that would make good gifts, please post a booth; and if you're shopping, come see what's on offer! We still have a few open linkback poems if you boost the signal.
Poem: "The Most Room in Your Heart" has a lengthy (currently 52 comments) discussion about door etiquette, baby-related changes, housemate interactions, everyday use of EFA techniques, authorial phrasing, causal factors vs. fault, the challenges of patchy life skills, and other interesting stuff.
A couple of folks are interested in cosponsoring "Homemade Families."
The 2017 Holiday Poetry Sale will begin later today. It's going to take a while for me to set up the post using materials I compiled over the weekend.
Poetry in Microfunding:
"The Inner Transition" is now complete. Valor's Widow finishes conversations with Stylet and puts him to bed. "The Higher a Monkey Climbs" belongs to Polychrome Heroics and has 29 new verses. Pips and Jules explore the Pho Real food truck park This one is down to just $52, and finishing it will open the way for its sequel introducing Pips to Joshua and family.
The weather has been mostly temperate here, aside from obnoxious cold rain intermittently while we were holiday shopping. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of sparrows, several dark-eyed juncoes, and a lady cardinal. I've also seen a rabbit hanging around the patio -- they scavenge dropped seed under the feeders.
