I have survived the final excursion to the malls for Christmas shopping. Can someone tell me how you can convince a 12 year old that the best gifts don’t come from stores? It would make life much simpler…and I’m all about simplifying these days!
Much to my relief, Brian Miller had a fantastic prompt up at dVerse by the time I returned home. As mentioned in a tweet, I was in desperate need of some poetry…not to mention some of the best free therapy I’ve yet to discover! You can imagine my delight when I found he had not only brought the prompt, but in doing so, introduced me to an amazing artist.
Tera Zajack of Olive Hue Designs is no different than the rest of us would be creative rulers. She battles the day job, the family job, and the same troubles that come when our muse brings us inspiration we fear we don’t have the “talent to tackle”.
So dear Poets, lets all join Tera in her happy dance. Here’s to all you wonderful folks that help me keep my sanity, and here’s to a fantastic and joyful (now that my shopping’s done!) holiday season to all!
She finds comfort in the wee lonely hours
