I am so thrilled to be part of the Winter Blog Blast Tour this coming week. Remember the Summer Blog Blast Tour? And why Colleen Mondor, of Chasing Ray, organized it?

Hip Writer Mama, I love your blog! --and I also love that you loved my I Want to Be poem (also a picture book) back in February. I left a comment there, but I'm not sure how often you check your archives for new comments --this comment contains the essence of what I said in the February archives. Thank you for sharing my work with so much affection.

Because I developed Limited ForkPoetics a few years ago while sitting in the Quality 16 Cinema with my husband, I have reconfigured my identity as well as poetry, so I like to refer to myself as forker girl, and leave Thylias on the formal publications.
Forker Girl is my identity as a maker --of a variety of visual and sonic pieces these days.

That said, I thought that you might enjoy knowing about and also visiting/experiencing some of the work coming out of this approach, so here are some links to my blogs and to my you tube channel where you can see my video poams:

A Limited Forker Girl's Tines, Bifurcation Station, Tine D.A.D.A. Club, The Forkergirl Channel, Limited Fork 101, Limited Fork Academic Split Tine,

and a link to my son's website (he's sixteen and the composer of the soundtracks for most of my video poams; he's also a visual artist. There are free downloads of his music at his site & other stuff I hope you like): strexx.com.

Thanks again for the literary embrace.
(You'll find links to your blog in my blogs soon --I've got to go pick up my son from school now, or rather, I have to go sit in the car while he, with his learner's permit, drives us home.)
