Things of the Week 10/12/16

Tweeting the Season: 

Poet-ing: I competed in my first Slam Poetry Competition. An absolutely fabulous night. I think I’m more of a poet-for-the-page, but the experience was well worth it. The poem I recited for Round 1, “Modern Witchcraft: A Business Meeting” was published back in April by Easy Street. Check it out.

I think they caught me on an “m” word.

MOMIX:  Had my mind blown by the dance-illusion experience “Opus Cactus.” Truly have never seen anything like it. Video doesn’t even do it justice, but:

High Plains Book Awards: Had the opportunity to attend the High Plains Books Awards and was delighted to discover that the centerpieces at the banquet tables were books–free books.

Reading the Season: The Witches: Salem,1692 by Stacy Schiff. I didn’t realize that the period of time surrounding the Salem witch trials was so short. I’m having the sneaking suspicion I fell asleep in American History on the day this was covered.

(Actual) Fun Brain Injury Side Effect: I’m taking up Tai Chi. I’ve started with YouTube and resources from my local library, but my next step will be to join a class locally. Discoveries so far:

  • practicing Tai Chi will be as much about developing patience for me as about anything else
  • moving slowly feels good (whaaaat)
  • the naming conventions for Tai Chi moves are a bit poetic, which I like
  • I’m sore (whaaaat)
