Making a Fist

Back in the Saddle.

Back in the Saddle.

This is such an outstanding piece of writing. A perfect piece of flash fiction, storytelling distilled. And it’s a great poem!

It is an honor to recite, Making a Fist, by Naomi Shihab Nye. Hear it Here!

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.

    • Thanks Letizia, I’m still a little skeptical about the new theme, I feel the links aren’t prominent enough. I appreciate the feedback.
      This poem really impressed me, just such a great piece of all around writing. So glad you liked it too.

      • I see what you mean by the links not being prominent. I use the same theme (or a similar one, I believe) and I have to write, click here or something like that to be sure people see the link. Bit annoying, but oh well. But I like how ‘fresh’ your blog looks.

    • Hi Dannie, congrats on your Nanowrimo win 🙂 I haven’t had much time on line these days, so I’m a little behind in my communications. Will visit your blog soon. As always thank you for your sharing, and reading and listening and now I see your following my ytube channel! peace to you Dannie.
