Day 2 of WordPress Blogging University, Writing 201, and the assignment is to write an Acrostic poem. Hint: in my poem the first letter of each line will spell out a word. Music is an art that is close to my heart–in fact, there was a time when it was an obsession. I played oboe and then saxophone–stories that have been buried inside me for a while. Blogging seems to loosen the compacted earth of memory, as a garden hoe–an unexpected process, but not an unwelcome one.
