Notice of Temporary Changes at Shay's Word Garden Blog

Hello, reader!

Let me just hang my hat up, and we'll go over the changes!

As some of you already know, Fireblossom is on vacation. (woman pictured is not Fireblossom; she is a paid stunt double.)

What you may not know, is that her trusted moderator and editor Catblossom is also on vacation.

However, Catblossom's staff of tigers will still be working to bring you the best in modern poetry. Here they are shown greeting an applicant known for writing haiku.

Also, visiting professor Dyson Hoovervac will be on hand to go over your submitted manuscripts. He is a rare talent, one of the only editors likely to tell you that your writing is not mechanical enough!

Even though Fireblossom is on vacation, she will still be writing and posting new poems with regularity, when she isn't discussing literature with friends....

...or retiring to her private library...

...for periods of deep meditation.

Meanwhile, don't forget to visit other bloggers, such as the mild and soft-spoken Mama Zen,

or the shy and retiring Hedgewitch!

Your ever-vigilant girl reporter,

Shay

It's unlike you to post such a factual record but I must say reading this little notice is a pleasant change from pulling very short tufts of hair out by the roots, or wandering dazedly in circles after smacking my head on an ever accelerating, three-stage rocket of a bar. Note: I appreciate the shout out, but wish to remind everyone MY staff has prominently placed dangling skulls, and usually is smoking fire, exuding the smell of sauteed chicken livers.

PS. I LOVE the tigers!

Vacations are supposed to be for relaxation...leisure activities...taking it easy--not wearing your fingers down to the nubbins, writing countless poems every day.

Reeeeelax.
