My faith is weak to nil, but I absolutely love this song. Today, once again, no poetry, only sketching, drawing, listening to music and walking. I will get back to the manuscript on Sunday. I will trim it some more possibly and then P will help me get it into the right formatting structure with a table of contents page etc. Then I will continue to trim it and mail it out in a few weeks before I leave for Canto Mundo. We will see if the friend with the red pen of doom will ever get back to me. Saturday is your last chance!

The agony of writing the second "book" or "manuscript" has been heartfelt. I have been in agony over this for a number of years. It is not anything like the first book, some disapprove of it I think, but it's time to have some confidence in myself. The fact of the matter is that a lot of people might not be able to relate to the poems, though some women find it more finished than male readers.
The manuscript is about abuse, depression, anger and loss. I wrote it during a very difficult rough patch in my life, the worst so far and hopefully the last.
