Outfit of the Week, BAM friend, and NaPoWriMo

Today is CeCi’s birthday and I’m spending the whole day with her.

The BAM-16 Conference seems like just last week.  I reconnected with my friend, Doreen, who I met in person for the very first time at BAM-15.

I met Doreen McGelligan virtually when I read and reviewed her book, BRISTOL STOMP last year.

Here we are last year:

And here we are this year. I picked this photo because I love Doreen. And because I got so many compliments about the way I tied my scarf. Yes! Even from the fashion bloggers! I did have my pink Hotter open-toed heels on, but by the end of the day, I opted for my Gltterflops.

April 27 OFOTW - 1

I let my hair go its own wavy way on this day.

I also like this photo because it shows how tall and lanky Doreen is.  I never realized how much shorter I am.  Don’t we both look gorgeous in our different fashion pics?

And here we go with a little poetry challenge:

write a poem that incorporates a call and response. Calls-and-responses are used in many sermons and hymns (and also in sea chanties!)

Call-Out to BAM

Making friends is easy, as long as you have a pen.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, women of midlife: BAM!

Next we harnessed keyboard, buzz and whir of modem.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, women of midlife: BAM!

YouTube, Blab, and GoogleMeets over toast and jam,
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, women of midlife: BAM!

Prose and verse, humor and vice, even a poetry slam,
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, women of midlife: BAM.

Hugs and laughs and salutations, into a small car we cram.
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, women of midlife: BAM.
