    Tags: 1/2 Marathon, Future Adventures,   

    For Adventure Seekers out there who are jealous of those Adventurers who Polar Plunged into the icy depths of beautiful lake Michigan on the first of the year (such as myself), there’s a chance to plan out a Plunge in the future, and raise money for a good cause: http://www.chicagopolarplunge.org/site3.aspx. A few Adventurers are planning a to join this organized plunge in March and to raise some money for the Special Olympics. I also plan to make and wear a 52 Adventures t-shirt. Do we have a logo yet? Also, I know that some other folks had “run a 1/2 marathon” on their lists, I believe this is the one I’m doing in Chicago (also in some 52 Adventures garb, of course) –so I thought I’d share: http://www.131marathon.com/13_1_Chicago.htm (June 13, 2010 -plenty of time to train!!

    Digesting the Stone 

    “Which poems will you read?” Brad asked, to which I responded, “I guess it’s between my concerning ones or my really concerning ones”. And that’s not a stretch. I don’t write poetry in the hopes of one day publishing. I harbor no ill-conceived notions of being crowned a laureate or lyricist or zany wordsmith. Rather, I write poems when red-faced. I write when I’m mad or sad or any intensified emotion that allows the emoter, me, to bellow in unconventional syntax. And it works. I write and write until I’ve exhausted myself. And when I’m poetically tuckered out, I’m usually in a place better than I was before, which is important when one references the titles of some of my poems, namely: “Your Living Wake”, “My Sister’s Eulogy” (note, she is still alive), “Eulogy For the Ugly”, among others.

      If your poems are as well written as this narrative, then I’m sure to be impressed. What a great adventurer!
