A Day In the Life of Joanna Maharis.
I letting every word in my head drip unto this page. It seems that lately I’ve run out of much to say; therefore, my poetry has been very limited. I have written some over the past three or four months; however, I want to fill up several journals worth of poetry and other writings first. Then, I will pick and chose the best out of the bunch and submit them for publication.
The weather here in Kalamazoo, MI has been beautiful all month. So, when I’m not fretting about what to write, I go for a drive with my aunt and grandmother to enjoy the sunshine. We stop at a few stores to go shopping.
Upon arriving home with our purchases, we set our bags down, and I help my aunt with dinner. Then we watch a good show on television. If nothing on television interests me, I simply go to my bedroom and read a good book. Lately, I’ve been reading The Golden Compass, the first book in Philip Pullman’s book series His Dark Materials. I’ll try to give a brief summary without really giving the plot away. I just started reading chapter 10 earlier today. This little girl Lyra is taken on a huge adventure where she and some friends are in search of the missing children that have been kidnapped. That’s all I’m going to say about it, because I don’t want to spoil the plot for those of you who may have an interest in reading it some time in the future, who have not read it yet or seen the movie. I do anticipate viewing the movie sometime after completing the entire volume of His Dark Materials.
I did some laundry after doing a little reading. Then took a little nap. I then chatted with my Uncle for a little bit while he was reading his periodical, and I was proof reading some poetry I had already composed in one of my journals.
