my poem, "I wonder...."
the video is from my performance at the Eric Clapton benefit on 3/14. my thanks to John Hayes at "Robert Frost's Banjo" for posting it. also, thank you to Kurt Loveland for the video.

"I wonder…"
I wonder… I wonder… What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow? I wonder why my lip twitches like an involuntary Elvis impersonator when I haven’t gotten enough sleep? I wonder if Facebook has my photo on an ad for Steve Martin’s books? I wonder i...

this poem was written for my friend, Lori Townsend and her daughter, Afrikka Hardy. Afrikka was murdered by a serial killer in indiana. please consider donating on the site below the video and sharing this on social media. the death of a child is too horrible for most of us to fully comprehend, myself included. Lori needs emotional and financial support to help her through this. she needs to have her daughter brought back to her in colorado. please help if you can.

i love it when google alert taps me on the shoulder to say, "hey, someone referred to you as a "poetess extraordinaire"....because it makes me all blushy in a good way. thank you to Alli Marshall & Mountain Xpress for the promotions for my Roasting Questions ~ Children's poetry book release at Hop West!

i know, i'm rarely on here. my brain hasn't been sufficiently reprogrammed to plus i guess.  so i apologize for the lateness of this.  my show & the launch of my book's website is tomorrow (or i guess technically tonite), sunday, september 30th at altamont theatre, right after the epic tempeh reuben challenge. :)  if you come by, i promise i will stand there and listen as you admonish me for my lack of google plussing. :)

i just realized i forgot to post this on google+....and it ain't real til it's been plussed.
i have an actual, no-shit, for real, publisher. :) and i will have a book of children's poetry coming out in hard cover and ebook forms. it's a small publishing house in asheville called Grateful Steps and i'm thrilled to say that this was not a case of my begging them to look at my work.
....so now it's official, because it's been plussed. :)

pre-sales for my new book of children's poetry, Roasting Questions, are up to $1800 & that makes me all warm & gooey inside.  i still need more in order to get the books back from the printers for the holiday season.  my publisher is non-profit, so this is how it's done.  any help you can give me in spreading the word would be so appreciated.  you can read the book, order copies & get fun extra stuff all at www.roastingquestions.com 
big hugs & kisses will be given to everyone....i hope y'all like dr. pepper chapstick.
