j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Interesting bit - Biblio/Poetry Therapy


Some of these people need ten years of therapy - ten sentences of mine
do not equal ten years of therapy.
~ Oscar Wilde ~

I've been thinking about a few ideas of what I'd like to write about. I have found that I really enjoy reading book blogs and a lot of them participate in The Sunday Salon. I've learned so much from reading them. I've wondered about participating, feeling a bit more confidence and perhaps writing a bit more each Sunday about what I learn from reading books too.
I also love poetry and so I've been reading & writing a bit of that as well. Imagine, if you will, what I thought when I found out as I was browsing in a blog search today, in a post by Rachel Marsom, that you can actually become trained and have skills in what is now being dubbed as Biblio/Poetry Therapy. It seems like a really great concept and it would be neat to have these credentials. A very nice one really.
For instance, we can actually help people through books and poetry. It's not so far-fetched for I'd venture to say it works. As for me, book bloggers have opened up wonderful insights into books that have already helped me. I so appreciate that.
Thank you. This card is for you.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
