For National Poetry Month, try to read a new or favorite poet each week, or if you are busy, listen to The Slowdown podcast by Tracy K. Smith. Each day, she delivers one poem in less than five mounts, and gives a brief commentary before she reads the poet’s work. It is like a mini-meditation. You can find it here on in Apple podcasts.
Valentine’s Day has never been only about a romantic relationship for me, it’s a day when I can say “I like you” or “You’re fun to be with.” It does not have to be about dinner, flowers, and chocolate. Keep it simple.
Happy Valentine’s Day
