Week in Review: Voice Gone Dark

My blog is on hiatus. For a long time? For a short time? For an unspecified time.

I need a break from my head. I need to sail away from life.

There are plenty of questions with no answers. I wish I could say differently.

I already miss you lovely people. Stay well and take care.

If you need me, you probably know how to reach me. Peace.

Always Happy Writing with you, Jeanne ✍🏼

And please don’t forget about Crow Gifts, my first collaborative chapbook. Submit your 1-3 poems, short bio, and links to soulcollective67@gmail.com. Thank you to those who have already done so. 😘❤️

Earth Song

the stillness of earth
a song well versed and rehearsed
watch my shadow crawl

What is going on with you creatively?

The haiku is taken from an expressive arts class 4/3/2020. The photo is from 10/6/2020. Life has been a bit hectic lately. Changes in my life never cease. I put a halt to my REACE training midsummer due to conflicts. My training will resume in February 2021, with a new venue out of San Diego CA.

I look forward to continuing the expressive arts as they bring me much calmness and energy. A centering of my heart is needed in the tumultuous times we find ourselves. And I am rather certain for time to come. Although others I know are feeling a respite coming. My thoughts are knowing whether it is a false peace trembling to capture imagination and souls. Or something so luminous we will barely be able to stand.

My plans going forward, once I am able to mentally give energy to all my dreams, is a new blog, Shed 33.3, to replace Soul Signs, which will incorporate all my life loves. 🥰🥳🎈🎈🎈 Although this blog will remain indefinitely as it captures the impermanence of my being. And of nature’s caress. The rawness, the muddy waters, and the hidden aspects of growth, unequivocally shared.

So stay tuned! And please consider contributing to the adventure with your soulful poems, The Poet’s Wonderment, Gift Crow, Vol 1. Read about this endeavor here. I can be reached at soulcollective67@gmail.com.

Anthony Gorman, of Hands in the Garden and Grumpy Gifts, is also on board, helping create and develop the first handmade chapbook. He can be reached at anthonytgorman@hotmail.com.

Happy writing!! Jeanne ✍🏼

Gift Crow.

Hello poets and creative forces. I am inviting interested bloggers to submit 1-3 poems for a handmade chapbook I am constructing to stock my Little Free Library. My library will be unveiled April 2021 and is a project very dear to my heart. I would love for you to be part! Here is a snippet from our town’s newspaper article. That is me mentioned ☺️.

If you are interested in being included in my first handmade chapbook, send me an email with your favorite poems, an intent to submit, any relevant questions, or simply to cheer on my newest endeavor!

soulcollective67@gmail.com

In your poem submission, please include your blog address, all published books, a small bio, and the poems! You are welcome to submit original art or photography as well. The theme for this first chapbook is “A Poet’s Wonderment”! My original art will be the cover titled “Gift Crow” vol 1.

Hope to hear from all of you very soon!

If you are wondering what you get out of this, it will be free publicity and a copy of the book if you provide an address (possibly a small fee incurred through this blog or Venmo… tbd).
