My fourth-grader brought this home from school today and I can’t resist sharing her work. It’s all her’s, age nine, and she assembling poems that perfectly sum up 500 years of New Mexico history. At this rate she’ll be a much more popular poet than I could ever dream of being. Yes, she really is only nine and can use sarcasm and irony and the word “colonialism.” That’s my kid.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
