Click! Goes the Shutter…

Matriarchal Ancestry

Work of sight is done; now do the heart work on the pictures within you.
Rainier Maria Rilke

Click! goes the shutter on the glitter that is you!
The vibrant color of your stance:
The chance that I might model you:
An athlete’s discipline.

Click! goes the shutter on the chatter that you speak!
The truth articulated:
I want to plant the words:
Then cultivate their growth.

Click! goes the shutter on the matter that you bring!
The vision that you carry:
To the altar of your life:
To offer as a blessing to us all.

A dedication to Emily.


Dara Lurie

Went to a Self-Publishing Workshop last eve at the Germantown Library. Dara Laurie led it with her book: Great Space of Desire (Writing for Personal Evolution). Dara encouraged the 20 writers in attendance to live serendipitously, to create, connect, collect and grow organically. She designs innovative, experiential and transformative writing programs which disclose the true voice of the writer.

Notes I took:
1 Write ’til you have a critical mass.
2 Have an objective editor. To test facts, research.
3 Find a marketing vision
4 Barter, teach, budget
5 Promote
6 Specify what others will love about your book.
Know how your passion serves others.
7 Pinpoint your target market
8 Define your niche.
