buon giorno a tutti!
i had hoped to spend a weekend visiting friends’ blogs, conjugating italian verbs, researching lodging in venezia, polishing/submitting papers that are just about due, & preparing for NaBloPoMo.
our internet provider had other ideas…guess which one of the above i actually accomplished to my satisfaction??
if your answer involved futuro, passato prossimo e trapassato prossimo, you guessed correctly!
after a week of very limited time to be on the internet & a weekend with an uncooperative internet provider (slow when it worked)...i am missing y’all!!!!!
& i’m beginning to wonder about my capability to do a daily blog post for NaBloPoMo…but i will, at the very least, be posting on my word processor to cut-&-paste when i am able! (someone remind me why i write that way-too-large check to my cable company…)
the concept of posting everyday for a month is invigorating & i am looking forward to the creativity of those participating. Cre8tiva really inspired me over the last month with her creative reinvention & I have been following along with my own poetry (I only wish I could create visual art with a fraction of the beauty that Rebecca does). She inspired me to use NaBloPoMo to do some writing exploration – experimenting with some other forms of poetry I have not used in years & opening 2 books on my “please read me” shelf to hone my writing in general…if you want to write by Brenda Ueland & fruitflesh: seeds of inspiration for women who write by Gayle Brandeis.
i am also, in honor of our thanksgiving holiday 22 november, participating in 30 days of thanks (a NaBloPoMo group) & to get myself on the stick with travel/italy (also NaBloPoMo groups) working on travel notes: past, present & future. our trip is fast approaching, but aside from the purchased airline tickets & a plan of where we want to be, i have done nothing!
in other places...sognatrice alerted me to this intriguing place to visit for hallowe'en:
did you know there will be a ball on hallowe'en? indeed! the bloglandia ball was such a smashing success that it simply must be repeated for this occasion, because, as you know...ghouls just wanna have fun! be sure to don a mask & drop by on the 31st.
howl-oween antics are already in the making at chez piacere...phil may be a dog, but he is in on the fun too!
speaking of all hallow's eve antics...stay tuned for some boyworld celebration of that night of revelry. i promise you will not be disappointed!
now, go bob for some apples :)
