Years ago, my close friend, Bev, bought me a set of mounted rubber stamps. They’re beautifully decorated wooden blocks with a red ink pad. The blocks have words like peace, joy, harmony, and strength written on them in Chinese characters. She had this idea that I could write a poem to go along with each one. With twenty different characters in the wooden box, I keep thinking this would make a terrific poetry chapbook. If not a chapbook, perhaps the blocks could inspire a few new poems to give to a friend. While I haven’t had time to start the project, yet, I hope to soon.
What projects do you have lined up for 2012?
