Thanks @esswhydeeblog for favoriting Interact on Twitter (@lovemekanism ) lol it kinda scared me ’cause that never happened. But thank you for joining that way. Thank you Paula Jones for following Interact on Facebook. Btw.
Speaking of twitter. I wrote a poem just for twitter and just before lunch. Maybe I should share it. Having shared the first poem here, the first Haiku here, and, I felt the need to share my first twitter poem too. Enjoy!

“Unhealthy. Every hydrocarbon of my being draws close so I might have each single touch of u but I crave more. Harder. I transform”
Agenda Item 1. Question:
I just wrote this Poem 12 called “Look” I’m not even sure why I wrote it; I’m about to edit it. Ok, I’m sure. It’s just that I believe “balance” is important. We cannot ignore completely what’s going on around us.
I’ve written before about how and why I don’t watch news. It feels reactive. But the last thing I saw on a news page was literally a story where a little boy shot a random infant in the face. I thought to myself how I cannot imagine that happening, and I know it doesn’t because I had never heard of it before, but I felt so repulsed by it that I would rather not judge the world based on what I saw on the news that day. What you feed self will be what comes out, so then the challenge became: if I will ingest this, I will ingest as much positive, but I never got back around to the negative stuff 🙂
– For more of this discussion, I will continue a portion of it here
“I’m pleased to announce that I’ve moved this blog to:
I’m really excited about the move and I hope I can take all of you with me!
Please follow me there and join me for today’s newest post.”
“Of course! You’re a fav and I ❤ the new digs”
Yeah….I’m aware that this isn’t a great quote from me, but it is from her because she’s excited. I think I’m getting better as a creative writer. I normally try to be generous and thoughtful with my comments. What do you think? 🙂 This wasn’t one of those times. I wanted to share this because Lauren was the first blogger I spoke to here. I had written the first Challenge because I had just written an article I wanted to link to hers. She is generous with her knowledge. Please follow her blog if you are a writer, wannabe, or just would like a good reminder of the basics every once in a while. I’m following! The link’s above. That never gets old. If that’s the right word, but there are always other things I’d rather say liiiike today. Lauren was the first person I reached out to- I found her post by the lovely Ghandi image I have shared, and she was so helpful.
