SUDAN CHRONICLES: POETRY ON DEMAND
A couple of days after we went in for our travel immunizations, my hubby and a couple of the kiddos went to the Craft Beer Fest in Austin. There was a guy there, set up with an old-fashioned typewriter, who could write you a poem for a wee bit of cash. All you had to do was give him a word to get him started. Well, Hubby's arms were probably pretty sore by then, so the first word that popped into his head was "vaccinations", and this was the result.
At first I had it hanging on the refrigerator door, but then it occurred to may that perhaps it was time to pull that Sudanese travel journal back out -- the one I started months ago, when we thought the trip was going to take place in August.
When things got pushed back to late December, the journal sort of got shoved aside to make room for other projects. But now, it's back!
