Poetry and personal blog – Spilling my guts to strangers

1 + 1 Wednesday (#21)

Welcome to 1 + 1 Wednesday.

It may seem as though I ran out of words after the April poetry challenge because I’m a little quieter than usual. I will get back to posting more often but it’s just that I have been ridiculously busy lately with life challenges.

For one, I was at Rutgers University this weekend attending my daughter’s graduation and had the pleasure of hearing author Toni Morrison speak. Among other things, she talked about the Declaration of Independence and how the pursuit of happiness is ok but it not enough by itself. In the comment section for my two words, I’ll tell you what she thought was more important to seek other than happiness.

As for you, I invite you to go to the comments section and share two words on any theme whatsoever. You don’t have to be a writer to join in! Your two words can be simple, complex, or completely random. Say something important, or make no sense whatsoever. Feel free to comment as many times as you want with two-word combinations.

No restriction on language except for this: No slurs against race/ethnicity or sexual orientation. Such comments will not be approved or will be deleted as soon as I’m able.
