Poetry Friday: a quote from T.S. Eliot

The Poetry Friday round-up is hosted by Laura at Writing the World for Kids.

I found this quote while waiting in line for Mission: Space at Epcot. Mark & I met my sister & nephews for a Spring Break adventure. Good heavens, it was crowded! Epic people watching!

We braved the rain to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Verisimilitude! You won’t be surprised to learn I spent my souvenir money at Honeydukes sweet shop & in the stationery shop!

During the trip I read Mary Oliver’s book, Felicity.

Has anyone read The Snow Child, recommended by Kate DiCamillo on her Facebook page? I finished it this week & found it gripping, with vivid writing & memorable characters.

I haven’t blogged in a month. At work we keep asking ourselves when things are going to let up, but it appears no relief is in sight. February typically feels like a whirlwind but this year March joined in the maelstrom. My hat is off to all of you who write & post & create so regularly!

  1. It looks like a wonderful time with family, Keri, & it’s nice to hear what you’ve been doing. Yes, I’ve read Snow Child & it was rather magical and felt lonely to me, too. I am slowly reading Felicity, but just a bit at a time, so calming. Thanks for the quote, one to remember, connects me to Stephen Hawking most recently in the news.

  2. I love this quote, and it’s perfect for readers and writers. We should always stay curious.Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love that quotation! Exploring and learning new things is what drives so much of life–both the large and small aspects. So good to see you!

  4. Dear Keri, you are living your poem! Don’t stop. And yes, I have read both FELICITY and SNOW CHILD. Enjoyed both! xo

  5. New blog home? Enjoyed hearing about your spring adventure. Will have to make a note of The Snow Child (thanks for the rec)!

  6. You’re reading, making memories, exploring the innerverse and the universe! Sounds busy to me. Thanks for sharing the T.S. Eliot (plaque? table?) from Epcot. I feel like I quoted that to someone last week but I can’t remember the context!

  7. What a good reminder! And life is always far more important than blogging. 🙂

  8. What a great quote! It looks like you had a good trip despite the rain. Isn’t Harry Potter World the most fun?

  9. I’ve missed your voice at PF, Keri, but am glad to hear (and see) you’ve been busy exploring. 🙂

  10. That is a great quote, and perfect for your post. Sounds like you had a great adventure!
