I went to, the website of the Academy of American Poets, to check out which poems they are highlighting for the holiday season. When I saw that they recommend Archaic Torso of Apollo by Rainer Maria Rilke for New Year's, my breath stopped for a moment. This poem has spoken to me before, but never more than now.

May the holidays and the New Year bring you peace and joy and, if this poem speaks to you the way it does to me, fruitful transformation.

I have a couple of fun events this week; swing by if you can:

Wednesday, December 5, I will be speaking about writing and activism at the University of Redlands, 1200 E. Colton Avenue, Redlands, CA in Gregory Hall, room 161 (in the Science Complex) at 7pm.

Thursday, December 6, I will be part of a poetry event called “Women's Work” at the Riverside Public Library, 3581 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, CA at 6:30pm. I'll be reading with a bunch of amazing women poets, all friends; we'll also be discussing how our work relates to the "wisdom of the divine feminine."
