Hi All, I hope everyone has made it through July safely. Let me tell you, it’s been a wild month! Now that events have been set in motion, I’ll tell you a little bit about the last couple months to give you some context as to why I need to take a break in July.

Hello all! We have only 2 more days until National Poetry Month is over! I hope you all have celebrated by writing some of your own poetry or reading some. I’ve done a little of both. This week I wanted to write a bit about what I’ve been reading: The Truth About Magic from New York Times best-selling author Atticus. I’ve read through his first two poetry collections Love Her Wild and The Dark Between Stars. And, I’ve loved each of them; His third one doesn’t disappoint.  Atticus has a way of looking at the world that is so special.…
