Monday Meeting - Juliet Wilson

Good morning staff! Did you have a wonderful weekend, and a beautiful Thanksgiving?  We sure did. We got home late last night and have a big day ahead of us. Most of which will be spent with the bunnies as I missed them so much. The show was great and I'll fill you in on that tomorrow. But for today, let's get our meeting started.

This week I am delighted to introduce you to my friend, Juliet Wilson, of The Crafty Green Poet. Juliet lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is yet another place I would love to visit one day. It looks so magical to me.

Juliet is an environmentalist and incredible poet. In fact, this is her book which contains a collection of poetry and haiku's that features sky themes, birds and her concerns for the world we live in. I am honored to own a signed copy of her book. This is my favorite haiku. Bet ya can't tell why. ;)

summer storm-
the sweet smell between
my rabbit's ears

On her blog, Juliet writes about sustainable and green living, the beauty of the world we live in and crafting with repurposed items. Her boyfriend takes many of the photos on her blog and I think they are beautiful.

Of course, my goofy sense of humor came out when I saw this next photo. She called this photo "Urban Crows." But ya'll know I can't help myself. In my mind animals always seem to talk and the bird on the ground was talking.     hee, hee, hee.

"Hey Mack, I told ya to hold the mayo. For cry'in out loud, can't you ever get my order right?"

Hop over and visit with Juliet, enjoy her beautiful poetry, be inspired to live a greener life and tell her Shell and the bunnies said hi.

Have a magical and fun week everyone!
Meeting adjourned.

What an interesting woman. Nice choice for today.

Do you think the crow is going to have an orange drink with that order?

Whoa! Juliet is my on-line writing teacher! (Well, I just started and haven't turned in my first assignment yet, but I'm hoping for the best!) Somwwhere amongst her blog items is a recording of her reading one of the poems from that book. What a voice - and accent for us Yanks!)

Tell us about the show ...
