About Me

Twenty years ago I asked a Tarot card reader what would I be doing when I was 50. She replied, “I see you doing something so wildly creative, it defies a job title.” Only recently did I realize that was a slick way of saying, “I have no idea of what you’ll be doing.” But that prediction kept me charging ahead to the fifties with zeal and anticipation. Now that the future is today, I’m ready for anything!

The Next Step for Poultry & Prose

Anyone who has regularly followed this blog has already figured out what I’m going to say.

I will no longer be writing Poultry & Prose.

I now live on 15 acres and the poultry are no more. So the title “Poultry & Prose, Stories from a free-range writer on a five-acre idea farm,” no longer fits.

Add to that, I didn’t renew my custom domain and have been unable to preview anything in Blogger. Not to mention I feel like I need a shower after seeing the names of Russian and Ukrainian porno sites that have taken over my stats.

During a Sunday afternoon when an electrical repair left us without power for three hours, I turned on my battery-powered Macbook and went through the contents of my  “Blog Stuff” folder. Duplicate images and beginnings of posts that went nowhere, I trashed. But in amidst the content were a few posts that I considered to be really good, three months or even three years later.

Those, I will be posting as my last entries on Poultry & Prose.

After that, until I decide whether or not to start a new blog, I will be guest posting wherever bloggers would welcome my opinion on politics or the economy or whatever else comes to mind.

So, I hope you enjoy these last few posts. Since I can’t preview, please forgive any typos that may appear in the copy. And thank you, dear readers, for reading!


  1. Oh Susan, how I will miss your witty and wise posts! :( I do understand how things change and we have to adjust to those changes. You have a gift for writing and sharing. I hope you find a way to continue with those gifts and I hope I get to be one of your readers once again. Thank you for sharing a bit of your world with us. I wish you all the best in your new chapter of life! In the meantime, I will look forward to your older posts.

    1. Aw, thanks Suerae! I've really appreciated your readership and insights over the past few months. Don't worry, I'll still be around. I just didn't want P&P to peter out without an explanation. Someday I'll start up another blog that doesn't include the hassle of a custom domain. Until then, I'll let everyone know of my whereabouts -- let me know if you need a guest blogger!
