Hello! My initials are m.e.m.o. I like lowercase letters. Much like T.S. Eliot, I like to break the rules. I am a teaching artist, writer-in-residence, arts educator, writer, poet, and photographer.
I am a new mama so I have been writing a lot about that subject, especially the struggles. I write honest, raw, and clumsy sometimes, but I hope you will nod your head and scream AMEN – I FEEL YA SISTA! I like to write about the things mamas don’t admit to their friends and to themselves sometimes about being a mama. It’s a tough job. I thought this was a cliche, it turns out it’s true – so damn true.
Thank you for visiting my blog/website. I will be posting a poem, essay, photograph, and/or quote everyday (or my very best attempt at everyday). Most , if not all photographs posted were taken by me. All poetry and essays were also written by memomuse. Please feel free to leave comments. I love the attention!
I have been published in This Day: Diaries of American Women, Eagles of Light, Mamalode, Cowgirl, Rodeo News, and various anthologies, including Traveling Time by Old Mountain Press. I am also the creator of The Original Journal.
I hope your day is filled with muse and poetry, and moments that make you pause in delight and beauty.
Peace & Poetry,
memomuuse (Megan Oteri)
