September, Leading to, Modpo
September. And the August-theme of noticing small moments, putting them into words and sharing them ... continues. So nice. Here's the link to the facebook group.
September brings an own theme, too, though: ModPo is back, the online Mooc of Modern Poetry. It was one of my fav courses so far, and I look forward to it. Today it is starting again, here's the welcome mail: "Dear Dorothee & all those participating in ModPo 2016: Welcome to "ModPo." We founded this community of people interested in modern and contemporary U.S. poetry five years ago and are delighted that each year more folks want to join."
And a third beautiful thing I am grateful for: we will have go to Mallorca at the end of September, for some late-summer island time. It's an idea we had last week in the Black Forest, yet we weren't sure if it would work out - but now it did.
So in celebration of all this, a poem I wrote in Mallorca once, and another photo of the horizon:
A circle. A destination. This day.
The everlasting question: how far is it still?
My expectations. The reality of life.
The stones that count down the miles, in red paint.
Another photo of the horizon.
The fact that we are always (t)here.
