The 180th Birthday of Miss Emily Dickinson

One of my poetry friend, Dave Bonta at Morning Porch was trying to corral folk to record readings of Emily Dickinson’s poetry in honor of her birthday today. This is something I’ve wanted to learn how to do, but have never done. I have been home sick all week, and am sick of being sick. This is a skill that would serve me well in my job, but which I will never have free time to learn while at work. I decided to give it a try, and hope my laryngitis didn’t kick in while I was trying. Dave liked it and said nice things, so I decided to take it to the next level and try to make a Youtube video with pictures. Yeah, yeah, everyone does this, they are all over, but I have never done it. So I learned another new skill. I spent literally the entire day on this. So easy for so many people, but it wasn’t for me. Still, despite that, I am proud of how it turned out. Not perfect, but pretty fair for a first try.
