Today's blogging challenge: If you were ever to become famous, what would it be for?
Well, it's rather an oxymoron but here it is: If I were ever to become famous, I would want it to be for writing. Writing poetry, to be specific.
And how many famous poets do you know? (You can stop laughing now.) I suppose, in their own circles, there are levels of celebrity, but in a more global way, it's pretty much not what makes someone famous.
But if there were a way to somehow become famous for writing poetry, I'd take it. There's only one caveat--even I'm laughing now--and that's the fact that I am not fond of the idea of doing readings. I would like people to read my poems to themselves and be happy, or moved, or whatever. But, maybe I could hire a professional reader to go out and read for me...? Yeah, that's not happening.
So, I guess that's pretty much the final nail in the never-going-to-be-famous coffin. Sigh. And here I was already packing for the Today show. Ha.
