poem-vicarious pleasure July 24, 2014

It’s been a journey of celebrations

seeing dreams unfolding

in flirtatious  Twitter assignations,

watching joy unrolling

during this cinematic gestation.

And now, with keen anticipation

all around the Earth

One can feel the vibrations

from fans awaiting this birth:

an incarnation of literary creation.

Outlander comes to television!  Premieres are being aired this weekend.  It has been fabulous following along with author Diana Gabaldon as she has shared the fun from the moment the papers were signed and it was official that Ron Moore was turning her books series into an epic television series.  We fans were part of the excitement as each character was cast, and I particularly enjoyed watching the delight sparkle in Diana’s eyes as she told me about being on set when she had her cameo!  

My joy is vicarious, but it is a very genuine and thorough joy.  It is just SO GREAT to experience the adventure of favourite books being transformed for a new media!

In case you don’t know, Outlander is airing in the US on Starz, in Canada on Showcase, and in Australia on Soho.  In Canada, we have to wait until August 24th.  It’s going to be painful as the American fans have 2 weeks ahead of us!

poem- doorbell June 17, 2014

Sleeping in

enjoying dream embraces

of a book boyfriend when

the doorbell rings

with delivery of the next instalment

in the relationship.
