Happy Record Store Day 2016 #RecordStoreDay

418457194152

This Saturday, April 16th is Record Store Day.  Just hearing those words gives me a thrill.  It’s no mistake that my Shredded Orphans series books are about a band.  I love music!

I try and do my part by buying CDs when I can and have even been known to buy vinyl.  Yes, I’m old school and I have a turntable or as I like to call it, record player.

Be sure to check out the website for Record Store Day, where you can download a list of special releases and find a participating record store near you.

http://www.recordstoreday.com/

There are a ton of records I would love to get, so you might consider making a list before you head out to the store.  I’m thinking David Bowie, Monkees picture disc and Tom Petty are at the top of that list.  Who’s on your list?

Support your local record store this Saturday and Happy Shopping!

Happy National Poetry Month!

NPM-Poster-2016

Two years ago, I did a marathon blog of posting one poem a day for the entire month.  It was a blast, but a little nuts.  Check out the archives for April 2014 starting with the one linked here to read the great poems that I posted with the help of a lot of fellow poets and writers.

Also, you can click on the banner below to find 30 ways to celebrate National Poetry Month.  I’m celebration by buying a book of poems.  (Bought one two weeks ago, but Darn! it wasn’t April)

Enjoy this month of poems and I’ll leave you with one from the new Shredded Orphans book out soon, The Shredded Orphans and the Space Pirates.

This Mine is Mine

You might own me,
but I own this mine
Because this mine is in me
It burns through my skin
It fills my lungs
This mine comes alive within me

Red dust
Red dust
Tap a vein
Red flows
Red flows
Liquid gold

Swallowed by darkness
I travel inside
Scraping the life from within
Spilling my guts
And gutting the mine
This duel has come to a draw

Red dust
Red dust
Tap a vein
Red flows
Red flows
Liquid gold

You take my life
I take what’s mine
My blood is in the soil.
You can not own
What you do not know
Forever this mine is mine.

Forever this mine is mine.
