Interactif: 1st Anniversary for Moineau en France!
Another year dawns for Moineau en France!
I am so proud and joyous to announce that today, October 12, 2009, marks the first anniversary of the poetry blog Moineau en France. And what a year it has been! :>>)))
How about a little poetic interactivity in order to celebrate this milestone? If you can manage it, I would love it if you would post a little something, a few words perhaps, to inspire each other and keep Moineau afloat! I'm suggesting a little quatrain, a verse, four lines, either formal and rhyming or absolutely free of any convention, whatever you feel moved to write. Here's an example:
i stopped by this blog the other day
on my way to buy a new Chevrolet
but I found I no longer needed that boat
and decided instead to travel Moineau
Ou en français:
Pourquoi pas commencer un blog
pour partager, pour créer quelque chose?
Je suis prêt à suivre le chemin
qui mène jusqu'à Moineau en France!
Silly, I know... but I leave it to you to make it real; whatever you want to say. :>>)) For those who do not speak french, it's easy to leave a comment.

Allez-y, mes amis! Au travail! :>>)))
A little bit more about this year on Moineau en France:
This has been a life-changing year for me on every level: physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. I have written over 100 new poems which I am sharing via this extraordinary vehicle, as well as music, art and photography (my own and others). I have also shared with you some very personal experiences this year, including the deaths of many close friends and loved ones. My eyes are more open today to the fraility and temporality of this life, and I am savoring every moment in honor of all the lives that have come before me and that travel with me now.
I added an international counter to my blog several months ago which shows the city and country of each "hit" that Moineau en France receives. Everyday, I see visitors from all over the world, on average 12, from France, Germany, India, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, the United States, Tunisia, Morocco, Iraq, China, Korea, Brazil, Chile, just to name a few. :>>)) What is most satisfying is to see return visitors, those that come again and again to experience momentarily this amazing life through the eyes and ears of Moineau. I am grateful for each one who stops on his or her own busy and important journey, who takes the time to read my little episodes and share my joy and my pain.
And to my mystery reader in Hood River, Oregon, whoever you are, I thank you for your daily attendance. You inspire me to keep posting new work, to find things that you will love, that will move you. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart!
Sincerely yours, ~Laura Tattoo, aka Petit Moineau (et oui! en France) xoxox
