Today’s post with the Syracuse New Times is a risk. It’s different. It’s something that people are not going to expect, and they might be turned off a bit about it.
It’s a Shakespearean sonnet.
My brother’s engagement has been the talk and talk of life for almost two weeks now. For next year’s big event, there is a lot to do, not me personally, but it’s understood. I cannot help but listen and talk about, because I love these two. I’ve been searching for photographers and other ideas that they could use and maybe make happen themselves. Down the road, I’d like to be married myself, so helping out is necessary for a learning experience.
A recent post by Jennie Saia at Tip of My Tongue helped persuade me into writing the poem despite it not having anything to do with life in Syracuse. The Espresso Shot is a thought-provoked micro blog; it’s not supposed to be long.
Also, before I share the link to the post, tomorrow we have a surprise.
It’s a guest post. A woman adds another segment of her life on the pages of this bottomless blog, adding to the flavor of life as we know it. Life is personal progress, but we’re not in this and on the planet all alone. It’s interesting to hear another’s story, how they tell it and how they’re cut-and-dry or flowery when telling it. It’s how we interact and communicate with others, how our lives intertwine.
I’m personally excited.
There is a blatant hint given in this post as to who this guest is.
The monkey is off my back for now … it’s sitting on my shoulder. See you Saturday.

I play with words and invisible objects.
A mind, a pen and a piece paper have the best relationship ever.
