Drawn from the pits and tossed from the light
a winged creature steadfast takes flight.
A pen-like sword with ten times the soul
the mighty muse comes forth to write the scroll.
Come all, come all the words are great!

This newsletter was a long time in creation. Actually... procrastination. It is finally out. I hope to keep those interested up to date on my events, music and misc. info.

Subject: Poetry Carnival newsletter
I didn't realize that I had allowed for four months to slip by without sending out a broadcast. This year is definitely going quickly.
I've hit a pretty good spell recently where I am writing a new poem every night. It's been a great run and I'm hoping that it will continue for a while. A heartache is always good for something :o)
For those of you in Indiana, I will be reading at Poetry Night at the Lighthouse Cafe in the small town of Alexandria, Indiana. Poetry night starts at 7:00 p.m. (which have to remember, Indiana changed to observe daylight savings time this year).
This will take place at 7 p.m., Monday, April 10, 2006. Sorry about the late notice. To mapquest this and join on the stage, it is at the intersection of Washington and Harrison Streets, zip code: 46001. I do not live in this town, I only participate here and there in poetry readings.
For those of you who have enjoyed the horror story "Carnival Nights," I'll hope you'll be pleased to know that I am furthering the story after a long pause.
My bike club is planning our first benefit ride to benefit Cerebal Palsy. This will take place on May 6th, 2006 and we are all excited. Monies raised will also benefit the Fairmount Foundation (Fairmount, Indiana-home of James Dean). If you would like to contribute to this cause or seek information on how you can join the ride, send an e-mail to: email@example.com with the subject line of "Benefit Ride, May 6" This ride has been mentioned in a few of the local newspapers.
Have a great spring
