NaWriPoMo: The Black Tortoise

Prompt #2:  “…write a poem based on a non-Greco-Roman myth.” What better mythological creature to write about than the Black Tortoise. Black Tortoise:  Xuanu, Genbu, Hyeonmu. Obstacle of holiness are You. Left to your own devices, You bully, you threaten, your terrorize. Repentant.  You are forgiven. Forgiven you are Given. Symbol of Longevity, go forth, Forevermore, Wisdom of the North.   Oh now, that was hard.   Related articles NaPoWriMo NaPoWriMo day 1! New resource: NaPoWriMo  

NaBloPoMo: The Challenge Begins on a Personal Note

Another gauntlet picked up by The Black Tortoise: NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month)  Every work day of June I will be posting something here or on Once A Little Girl.  I will abstain from posting on Saturday and Sunday.  Those are my days of ReWoMeN (ReconnectWorshipMeditateNap.)

I plan short, to the point posts, which are a little low on pictures.  Part of the time I’ll be traveling with three sister and a mom.  Sorry in advance if some of my posts are just too darned personal.  On the other hand, some of you may like a little insight into the personal side of The Black Tortoise.

So, with that as a starter, here’s a bit about my upcoming trip.

BlogHer, a Neti Pot, and Me

A cold caught me.  It’s had me for over two weeks.  Not a down-in-bed kind of illness; just the persistent, oh-you-wanted-to-sleep-sorry-I’m-gonna-make-you-cough sort of sickness.  Three days ago I got the Netti Pot out. Now the Neti Pot is loved and recommended by many, including Mom, Number One Grandson, and Love-One.  That said, Neti Pot seems like some sort of twisted torture to me.  You want me to pour a teapot full of water up my nose?  I don’t think so.  It hardly matters that I actually feel better after my sinuses are purged with saline.  Who the heck thought this…
