Self-Portrait Saturday: Faceless Fashion Edition

Bright tights, 80's inspired skirt and my favorite boots.  Where was my pump?   Honest answer? Cleavage.  I'm not thinking that's going to appear in any future Self-Portrait Saturdays.  I try to keep things at least semi-professional around here.

Can I put poetry in motion for PWDs?

So a couple of weeks ago I was honored to be featured on Kelly Writers' House Live, airing on Philadelphia's WXPN 88.5fm.  I'd like to thank my friends at Apiary magazine for inviting me to appear, and I'd like to thank Michaela Majoun for her gracious hosting.  Also a big thanks to the University of Pennsylvania for having such an awesome Writers' House and a great bunch of people in it, including Alex (I could have her name wrong) who was running the show.

It'll be archived online soon enough, and I'll let you all know where you can go listen once it's up.

But all this poetry stuff has me thinking--is there a way to combine writing with helping people with diabetes?  Has anybody done writing workshops for PWDs?  Do you think people would be interested?  I am seriously contemplating how to facilitate this one; I think it could be a cool exercise in patient empowerment.

So much brainstorming right now about so many different subjects!  This is merely one thing that's on my mind, but I figured a great thing to bring up among my diabetes community compadres. 

Thoughts?  Suggestions?  Any takers?  Maybe?

Have a great weekend, all.
