Tuesday Testimonial: In Need of a Wand

It's not too late for Tuesday Testimonial, is it? I've been home a few hours now from a very fast trip to Salt Lake City and back and I'm about to collapse with a book (I haven't decided which one yet) before I fall asleep with it on my lap. We just went over the calendar for the rest of the month and it is FULL. Every day.
I guess that's a good thing, though some of the things aren't what we want to do, but what we have to do, and there may be as much time getting someone somewhere as there is being in that place. But I'm one of those people who needs to try and make the getting there enjoyable, so I'll just have to plan for that.
I guess I'm tired, and I'm wishing for some time to do this:

Let me walk through the fields of paper
touching with my wand
dry stems and stunted butterflies.... 
~Denise Levertov

That will take some planning, too.

And I think this wand.

Writing is a sort of magic, is it not?

That quote is simply wondrous and inspiring. It makes me want to write poetry, and I'm not much of a poet.

Hope things calm down for you soonly, so you can have some time to just breathe and be and write.

I look at the summer calendar and wonder how it filled up. Vacation? Yeah, right!
