Greetings All,

I thought it would be great to share a photo that expresses the fabulous Spring energy in Washington, DC.  What do you think?

What are some of your favorite Spring images?

Enjoy your day!

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for Springtime and the Obamas,

Ananda, an Obama fan

Listen to Ananda read poetry from her new book That Which Awakens Me as she launches her 30 Days of Poetry, Jazz, & Earth Day Awareness on BlogTalkRadio

Happy April! Happy National Poetry Month!  Happy Jazz Appreciation Month! Happy Early Earth Day (4/22)!

Today marks the beginning of “30 Days of Poetry, Jazz,  & Earth Day Awareness,” my online campaign that promotes National Poetry Month, National Jazz Appreciation Month, and the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day.  From April 1 to April 30, I am using social media and six-word memoirs to share jazz inspirations, poetry, and reflections about Earth Day and green living.

Here’s my first six-word memoir for April: Poetry. Jazz. Earth. My Soul Necessities.

Do you have a six-word memoir for April, poetry, jazz, or Earth Day awareness?  Share it in the comment section below.

This morning I recorded an author chat on BlogTalkRadio which celebrated jazz, poetry, springtime, Cherry blossoms in Washington, DC, green living, and Mother Earth (in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day).  Several poems discussed neo-soul singer Erykah Badu, jazz singers Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, jazz musicians Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Thelonius Monk.  They were published in my new book That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery.  Click on the the BlogTalkRadio widget below to hear my 15 minutes of poetry.

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for poetry, jazz, and Mother Earth,

Ananda
