Compass Needle Pointed Toward Diploma
I vowed to keep pace with my writer friends like Kelli Russell Agodon and Donna Vorreyer and post a blog a week in 2018 for the Poet Blogger Revival, but it was just so hard for me to write that last post about Chris Cornell so I got stuck for months.
But I will try to make up ground from now on. I'll probably sneak in some extra posts on as many weeks as possible, so maybe by the end of the year I will still get close to 52 blogs.
One cool thing that happened recently was that I got a poem picked up for a "Poetry Spot" feature on the AZCentral website. That's the online component for the Arizona Republic newspaper that started showcasing poems by Arizona poets. My poem can be read here: https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/phoenix/2018/05/23/poetry-spot-compass-needle-pointed-toward-diploma-shawnte-orion/639316002/
