JUMP DIRECTLY TO APOCALYPSE POEMS I’ve always been drawn to novels, movies and TV series about end times, apocalypse and dystopia.

I always feel better when I'm making something, and today's soundtrack was an essential reminder. It's time to refocus and it's time to shift and these seasons I loathe (fall and winter) may be the perfect opportunity. For once, I'm thinking they could be good for me. Perhaps I can use them to get my feet back under me? The post “the opposite of war isn’t peace — it’s creation” appeared first on GOOD UNIVERSE NEXT DOOR ..read more

Now in my 50s, I am (both IRL and in writing life) thinking about comfort over appearance. What would it mean to let go of the idea of pretty or sexy or cute?

The shake-up is shaping up
GOOD UNIVERSE NEXT DOOR

The new approach is like sensible shoes: not quite as sexy but less pain, more mileage. At least that's the idea. And so far, so good! I've been keeping up with art and writing by doing at least one small thing each day, and it’s helping me reconstruct the idea of myself as a poet and artist.
