Things are tough out there, relentlessly tough.

I needed more play, I needed to make something, I needed to turn away from the news and make something, but nothing fancy or tricky or permanent.  So I got out a tin of words sent to me in 2017 by Linda Baie of TeacherDance.  I found I needed connector words, so I also got out a Magnetic Poetry set (LGBTQ version). 

Here's what I've playmade this week.  It's working the way I hoped it would.


  1. I have been enjoying your posts on Instagram. What a great way to get out of a rut! I love the video one that blows the words, symbolic. I hadn't seen "impossible summer." The heat is unbearable these days. I think it's time to "free up a new story." Thanks for this playful reminder.

  2. These are inspiring, Heidi. I've been collecting words and phrases from magazines, but that's as far as I've gotten. Yes to more play!

  3. I love how you turn to word play when things are tough. These are great. That third one packs a big punch!

  4. I have read so many posts regarding the blogger lovers however this post
    is truly a nice piece of writing, keep it up. 메이저사이트

  5. Just want to say your article is as surprising. The clearness in your post is just excellent and i could assume you’re an expert on this subject. 경마

  6. I am always on the lookout for quality posts and articles so i suppose im lucky to have found this! I hope you will be adding more in the future 바카라사이트
