i/we spent new year's at my parents' in my hometown. it was fun - lots of singing, esp my youngest brother martin and my dad. they say that when more than two people from carinthia (the federal state i come from) get together, it won't be long before they start singing. *G* anyone not familiar with the gabriels might have been a little intimidated ... *L* and no, don't worry, i am not providing any sound files, only pictures. here are a few.

went to the open mic last friday, met up for a chat with sylvia before it began. met some new people. i read the final letter of the collaboration project, and an abecedarian - A Ladies' Guide to Writing the Love Poem. people seemed to especially like the abecedarian. :) there was some exceptionally good performance poetry, in both german and english. i'm quite determined to go again in february.
i finished another 30 days of poetry yesterday - which means i have been writing a poem a day for 120 consecutive days. madmadmad. not sure i will continue. it has been exceptionally tough lately, and i feel a bit burned out.
day 112 - you nude girl folding your arms
day 113 - eleven reasons why love was inevitable and she wants to marry him
day 114 - You Watch the Sunset and Find Twenty-Seven Ways ... (a cherylian)
day 115 - New Year's Eve (Sonnenizio on a Line from C S Lewis)
day 116 - She Makes A Cup of Tea, Muses About the Whiteness of the Three-Quarter Moon ... (a cherylian)
day 117 - He Loves A Good Egg Salad Sandwich For Lunch ... (a cherylian)

day 119 - Sonnenizio on a Line from Neruda (The night turns on its invisible wheels. ...)
