An Alpha Meme

Lenore of Presenting Lenore tagged me (ok, I asked) for a meme where you list ten things that you love that start with a letter that is randomly assigned to you. I got the letter A.

If you want to participate, let me know, and I'll assign you a letter.

Ten things I love that start with the letter A:

Autumn- It is my favorite season. It's also a season of loss.

Assonance- I'm partial to sound devices in poetry.

Art- love all forms. I love beautiful things and things created out of passion.

Audre Lorde- I think she was a brilliant writer and gifted poet.

Abandoned Automobile: Detroit City Poetry 2001. An anthology that shows the real breadth and humanity of my native city.

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. Informative, funny, relevant. Perspective changing.

August Wilson. An African American playwright if you don't know him, you should.

Alice Walker. We share a birthday. We both write poetry. She's good at it. She's a womanist. Me, too.

"All Things Considered", title of a poem I wrote. Sentimental but I actually think this one works.

"Adagio for Strings," Samuel Barber. One of the first pieces of music my guy shared with me. Affected me deeply.

I remember going to see The Piano Lesson and Two trains running. Oh, how I would love to see another August Wilson production!

This sounds like fun! Assign me a letter.
