Life is about the journey!
Feel thankful that this is their issue and not yours. Open gestures lead to open minds. From your core. Inhale through your nose, exhale through softly pursed lips. Breathe and let the moment pass. You might not know nor understand the reason you feel a certain way, but you just gotta trust that ish?? The more they talk about themselves, the more interesting they find you. A special delivery today from the North Pole. One of my closest friends has been gathering a collection of news stories and pieces of information to use when she has to spend several days with her mother-in-law this Christmas.
Whenever the conversation becomes negative, or seems to be heading into difficult ground, she plans to draw on these topics, so she can feel more in control and can keep things as positive as possible. Plus, smiling can be infectious. Make sure you pop there regularly if you are feeling overwhelmed and take a few minutes for yourself.

Sewage from equivalent of 77, people released into environment every day without treatment Sewage from the equivalent of 77, people in 36 towns and villages If I met her, I would love to ask how she does this! Her prose poems still move me. I think she is best at writing broken-heart poems: "fuck you" is amazing. However, I find some of them melodramatic.
Who would have thought that would have ever happened! I still think the arrangement of these poems could be better. The ones before "what you eat" could easily be removed-- like many here. The poems that were composed from e-mails were particularly boring. I am not as impressed with this book as I am now. Downgrade from five stars to three! It took two hours to read over two days. I have read three of Gottlieb's poetry collections and the anthology she edited, and some interviews and essays The anthology has a nice mixture of simple free-verse, found poetry, and prose poetry.
Themes range from politics, death, and heartbreak-- forms and themes that are Gottlieb's specialties, it seems. The collection had a slow start, but once I reached "what you eat," I knew I was in for a treat. Sometimes Gottlieb's cultural references and experimental form can be too much for me to understand, but she simplified them or my abilities increased, hm? However, her free verse was too simple at times.
There were only a few poems that truly fell short to me, and those were the ones that sampled personal e-mails. Otherwise, a great volume. That, and knowing the fact that Gottlieb is on craigslist is thrilling! Oct 06, Brandy Shark rated it it was amazing Shelves: poetry.

Everything she writes is just phenomenal. A lot of her poems touched me personally, the ones dealing with the aftermath of a relationship. Because there's no book on that, there's no realistic movie or show on how to deal with it.

Her poems are just so visceral and moving. I'm also a big fan of the fact there's some found poetry in the book. Poems that came from lines in emails and such. I can't wait until she releases another book and I am on the hunt to buy every thing el Fantastic.

Mar 10, Andrea Janov rated it really liked it. Gottlieb's voice is authentic, precise, and conversational all at the same time. The ordinary to the subversive is all fodder for poetry in Gottlieb's world, and that is a world that we should all be a part of. Though I like her original work as opposed to her found in emails, text books, and new stories best, she has a way of illuminating a subtext no matter where the words themselves originate.
