I'm an Oxymoron - Emphasis on Moron!

Yesterday, I was beating myself up for being too chicken to share my book trailer with ten people and today, I'm asking an unknown number of people (more than ten, that's for sure) to go to No Water River, Renee LaTulippe's amazing blog, to watch me read a poem I wrote!  Anyone with half a brain would surely think that the first would be much less frightening than the second - right?  Thus the post title :-)

I discovered No Water River during Poetry month and have been a huge fan ever since!  So, when Renee emailed, asking if I would do a video poem, I agreed immediately.  It wasn't until I actually thought it through that I realized what I had committed to!  I couldn't back out on my promise, so I bit the bullet and did it.  

Of course, I waited until the last minute to make the video - the day before I needed to submit it.  I did my first take and OMG was I overly animated!  I was embarrassed watching it by myself.  I did a second take and I was just a drop more animated than the wall.  If this were The Three Bears, I'd say the third and final take was just right.  Sadly, this is not a fairy tale so, the video I submitted is somewhere between manic looney tune and zombie (minus the rotting flesh). 

So, with all the confidence I can muster - and with no regrets - I'm inviting you to watch my video and read my interview at No Water River.  While you're over there, check out the other poets reading their work - they're terrific!

    of having a flat tummy. My grandma can really feel vindicated at such a claim,
    she's been saying this all my life. Emotion linked to a definite objective is a strong mixture.
