If You Need a Thanksgiving Escape

On my ever-growing list of technology things to conquer, I've now begun to ponder making my poems into videos. Sandra Beasely has created an inspiring pair of posts on animating poems: part 1 is here and part 2 is here. Would my creations be something akin to trailers promoting a larger book? Or would they be a separate art form? When I started blogging, I thought of it as a promotional tool. Now I've come to think of it as its own form of justifiable writing.

Of course, maybe creations can have more than one purpose.

Or maybe you want to create soul cards. Both Sandy Longhorn (here) and Kelli Russell Agodon (here) have written posts that make me want to rip up my magazines.

While you're at Sandy's site, check out her list of inspiring quotations here.

Things to ponder as we start the great feast preparations . . .
