I am very pleased to report that I am now a member of the Board of Directors for Literacy Link South Central, a non-profit that works, under the aegis of Employment Ontario, to provide literacy skills (numeracy and alphabet) to residents of the Brant, Norfolk, Haldimand, Elgin, Middlesex, Brantford and London municipalities. It is an honor to be a part of this tremendously important project.
I am very grateful for the timing of this poem’s appearance. Yesterday it snowed in Los Angeles, Joshua Tree, California and over in Las Vegas, Nevada. Yesterday a story appeared about polar bears raiding a rubbish dump in Novaya Zemlya, Siberia because of poor sea ice.
I am one of those folks that write poems in response to things going on around me, so it is especially pleasing when I feel like the timing of a poem’s appearance is just right. Thank you, As It Ought To Be for featuring what I do. I am very appreciative.
