2016: Year of Feet


2016 is THE YEAR OF FEET.feet beach

On a physical level. On a writing level, it is … The Year of Sweat, you’re beautiful, ladies.

Please do not mistake 2016 to be my year of sweaty feet – though the metaphors do inform each other. Bringing this ’round to neutrality.

What defines neutral? Observe the differences between those feet, up top. Floppy, flat, sloping, elegant. Toes: splayed, or bird claw. How would the difference affect your walk?

Apply that to your writing, beautiful ladies.

I am a writer. I write to explore childhood: literary essays and short fiction, journalism, and three haiku. My published work expresses my belief that everything which did or did not happen to me as a child is manifesting in everything that is or is not happening to me today. More importantly, it is also manifesting for my children. I believe funny is the new navel-gazing, and that the best funny keeps a penny's worth of serious in an accessible pocket. Little-known fact: I have a completed novel decorating the inside of a desk drawer. Perhaps it is not funny enough.
