Welcome to my Poet's Perch Tiny House Blog
Updated: Oct 18, 2021
Who would have thought that the idea I formulated in early COVID days, to create a quiet yet community-connected writing retreat, would have come this far? After hundreds of hours daydreaming, researching, asking for meetings, and hunting for the right structure and the right place, I have a tiny house on wheels, my little .07-acre plot of land, a complete set of plans, and the approval of a very supportive city to get my writer's retreat on its way to reality.
I decided to set up a new website for the Poet's Perch - as I am calling the retreat - because there are many aspects of this project that might prove helpful to others investigating the joys and benefits of a tiny house.
Here's a neo-Haiku I wrote in celebration of reaching this moment. Jewishly-knowledgeable friends might hear resonances with the traditional blessing of thanksgiving for reaching a milestone, "Shehechayanu".
That gives us h(e)aven,
That sustains our (l)ink, to live --
Safe, Inspired to right(write).
