Welcome!

Welcome to my life! I am looking more for informality in this space. The entry page is here, and the posts are here. If you’ve visited previous sites of mine, you may recall that I occasionally delete everything and start over again. I will not promise not to do that.

My current project is a four-week workshop beginning 11 September 2017, Introduction to Japanese Poetry, given by Naomi Beth Wakan. It centers on learning about and then writing haiku (two weeks), and then tanka. I am learning a lot. The writing practice involves concentration, since I must pay attention to the guides rather than let my own inclinations pull me in another direction. 

Note: I have “started over”, pretty much, with my The Art of Disorder blog, repurposing it for one-time and ongoing prompts and challenges. Most of the previous posts have been set to “Private”.
