Dusted words, little moments and stories captured in my heart and mind. From simple observations to deeply rooted impressions they become poems or prose and this is one of the places they land. Originally inspired by the painted series, WIDE OPEN by Lori Popadiuk.

In her painted work, Lori explores the concept and belief that all aspects of us are equally important. Even those dusty parts that we don’t always show to the world. When we can tap in to those places this is where our true authentic self is found. Dusted Words is the written exploration of this.

  2. From someone else’s post, I linked to one of yours on The Daily Crapper, and as you suggested, I have begun at the beginning. It will take some time to read it all. Enjoyable, thoughtful time of connecting. And then I found that you had connected with me through dustedwords. So I’m pretty sure it’s going to take longer to catch up to your present than I’d anticipated, but I am absolutely certain it’ll be worth it.

  3. Alisa, it is so great to meet you. I am so glad that I have been able to connect with you. Always looking for new friends!

    I was so struck by your opening lines on your about statement – Just loved – “Dusted words, little moments and stories captured in my heart and mind. From simple observations to deeply rooted impressions they become poems or prose and this is one of the places they land.” Love the concept of Dusted Words. Saw this is part of the title of your book. Have you a title poem with that title??

    Looking forward to your posts. I’m guessing you have a large back catalog???

    • Yes, me as well. I actually don’t believe I do have a poem called Dusted Words, oddly. You have given me something to work on now;) I have a bit of a back catalog on here, not a huge amount. I look forward to reading your work as well:)

      • I am hoping you will find my blog worthy of your time and that you enjoy it. You made me smile with, “not a huge amount” isn’t that a little ambiguous? Compared to what? Ha! Sounds like one of those Texas type units of measure? LOL!

        I will warn you now and put you on notice that I keep a Word Bank of words and phrases that hit me. So, you now have a deposit in my Word Bank to your account for “Dusted Words”, Dusty Words”. It is rare but it has happened recently that a deposit made on one day paid dividends in the same day (Gold Stars and inspirational credit). I will give you a head start in writing your poem. How much time do you think you might need or want? LOL!

      • I just zipped in quickly and already know I will enjoy reading your work. I guess it was a bit ambiguous lol. I think there is about 70-80 on there right now:) Lol, laughing so hard at that last bit. It will take a while. I am very slow going with writing and inspiration right now. I think more likely I will be pondering thoughts over tea for the next while. The method to the madness…I have no method lol.
