visiting brother in Chelsea MI


The Jenkins Christmas in Chelsea is coming along nicely. The conversation and food has been great! Yesterday all of Mark’s fam came together for a meal and to exchange gifts. They had already done so as a family on Christmas eve so it wasn’t too crazy.

Everyone has mentioned how happy they are about my  beating the cancer thing.

I am getting some good relaxing and resting in. Unfortunately, I think I am gaining about two pounds a day. I am certainly eating well!

Leigh got one of these cool little speakers for Christmas. It sounds great! I ordered one this morning.

I have been trying to catch up on my poetry reading. I ran across a poet I like quite a bit, Jane Wong.

Here are links to two of her poems.

After Preparing the Altar, the Ghosts Feast Feverishly by Jane Wong | Poetry Magazine

Everything by Jane Wong | Poetry Magazine

The three Chinese phrases in this poem translate (respectively) “I am dreaming in Guandong” “you are a beautiful wild boar” “you can’t look at me” (I used Google translate for this).
