Okay, last night I posted this to a closed LJ friends only group. Now I can open it up to everyone.

Today is [info]laurasalas 's birthday.

EVEN IF YOU AREN'T A POETRY PERSON, PLEASE GO WISH HER A HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

And please, feel free to copy this request, post it in your own blog, and spread the word.

If you read Laura's blog you know that she is a wonderful poet and is terrific about sharing her knowledge with everyone else. Every Thursday Laura posts a picture and asks people to write quick poems of 15 words or less. They aren't expected to be perfect poems. You can read her guidelines here.

Anyway, I hope you'll help me wish Laura a happy birthday. I've posted a picture here and I'd love it if you would go over to Laura's blog and post a poem of 15 words or less that you are inspired to write after seeing this picture. If you want to post the picture within your comment, the code to do that and link back to this pic is <src=http://pics.livejournal.com/susanwrites/pic/0006kb3c>  If you want to post them here, that's okay too. Please make sure to put your byline/blog with the poem.




one perfect day
filled with friends
wish I may
wish I might
make it so

Susan Taylor Brown

You're such a good friend, Susan. I had no idea it was Laura's birthday. Thank you SO much for letting us know. And what a fabulous way to honor the First Lady Of Poetry. {}

Lots of love,
Pamela

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
