It Happened Again

Image result for sigh

Hi guys. Sorry for the radio silence. Once again JetPack and my host server had an argument and one decided to take my blog prisoner and hold it for ransom. I finally got it back last night when my host server decided to give JetPack permission to work again. Alright, so maybe it sounds more like a union strike. Either way, I was unable to access my blog until now. So Hi!!!!!! How are you? I’ve missed you all so much. 🙂

On the upside, the break has given me a bit of a rest and I’m beginning to feel like writing again. I’ve been poeming over at The Well Tempered Bards the past few months and creating what I feel are some amazing pieces. I’ve also been writing behind the scenes so that I can begin to finally put together that anthology I’ve been meaning to publish for the last three years. I’ve also been writing down some story ideas but not actively working on them because they distract more than help but at least I have the ideas written down and I can come back to them later on.

Other big news: I created a new blog. It’s a parenting blog called Not Your Average Mother. My intent is to redefine the role of what I call Momming. Anyone who takes care of children “moms” in my book. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female, single parenting or not, etc..if you help raise a child you are momming. The adage ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ is valid. So help me help others by contacting me over at Not Your Average Mother and lets change the idea of what being a mother is *really* all about. A mother is not just about being female. Single dads mom all the time. Single moms have to be both dad and mom. Transgender families, gay families, CIS families…we all take care of the children we love. And I want to hear your thoughts and views and perspectives. That’s why I’d really love for you to send me your stories about raising your children so I can put them up on this new blog. I’ll post contact info at the end of this article.

Lastly, I might be going to Chicago in a few months for a visit and last night my guy found a restaurant I *have* to visit. If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning you’ll know that my original blog name was The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I shortened it because that was too much of a mouthful and I’m kind of a tongue in cheek personality anyway. *badum tish* Can you guess why I need to visit this particular restaurant? The Lunatic, The Lover, and The Poet is at the top of my list for this visit. And guys? It’s a wine bar. I so can’t even right now.

If I don’t answer, you’ll know where you can find me. 😉

Now. Back to our regularly scheduled blogging.

XO Jesi

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    1. Me too. It’s been a long time coming but I’ve been going back and editing older work and I’ve started choosing current ones. Slowly learning what to do but I’ll get there.

    1. I love Chicago. Being there makes me feel so alive. I’m apparently a city girl at heart. I can live in the suburbs and the country and be content, but the city definitely makes me happy.
      And I love having a place specifically for my poetry at the Bards. *mwah*

      1. xoxoxo I love you having a place there, too!

        I think different cities do different things for me. Oxford is stunning. Brighton is fun. London is stressful and terrifying. My city is boring in the middle and better around the edges.

        1. Oxford and Brighton…I’ve always wanted to go there. I’ve heard such wonderful things about them both.
          *sigh* bubble dreams.
