Saturday at the Desk of the Kangaroo

84º ~ full sun, the slightest of breezes

Here's a picture of Lou-Lou that sums up the last couple of days. Having spent 5 days away from the desk of the Kangaroo, I've been having some trouble getting back into my routine. There were things to deal with (bills and laundry and whatnot) and my back is still not up for long stretches at the computer. (I cannot believe how long the recovery period for this simple injury is going to be!) Also, I'd fallen incredibly behind on my blog reading. I use Google reader, and while I almost never read every blog post, I do have quite a few blogs on that list and so many of them are especially compelling.

Over the last two days, I've cleared the list. Woo hoo. I must confess, Dear Readers, if your blog is a usual haunt of mine, I might not have done it justice b/c I skipped leaving comments, mostly; however, such is life. I'm always grateful to know you are out there reading what I've posted, and I cherish your voices, too.

Speaking of other voices, here are some links you simply must check out.

Late, late, late, but this past week's poem at Linebreak is stunning in it's simplicity. Click here to read "Salina, Kansas" by Trey Moody. I'm jealous, jealous, jealous of this Midwestern poem.

Also, Suzanne Frischkorn's poem "Zoological Garden" from her new book, girl on a bridge, is up at Verse Daily today! Lovely, lovely.

Michele Battiste has been doing some interesting things with templates and some new results are up. I'm intrigued by this process and may use it next week as I begin an attempt to write a draft a day for two weeks.

If you missed it, Jehanne Dubrow was on Fresh Air on Monday. Take a listen! (Link is in her post.)
