“Patience…” Calliope surveyed open books, handwritten notes, and colored pencils scattered across the tabletop, “… is a promise. Waiting for your peaches to ripen while while busy bees, swarming flies, and baby bunnies zip this way and that…”
“…takes courage, vision, and an ability to allow the sun, rain, and soil to share their gifts.” Nia grinned and finished Cal’s sentence.
Joi de vivre danced among the red dots of Thalia’s dress. “Eeeee!” The Muse of Wit squealed with delight. “We have a sticky idea for our next project! I’m so excited to get started!”
Words from Typist:
A few months ago, I received a box of books in the mail — an unexpected surprise from a friend of a friend. The bounty arrived shortly after “c’s” life
interruption, errr… interaction.
Among the offerings there was a book by Barbara Kingsolver — How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons). It took me months to recognize the value of what I had been gifted. Reading Kingsolver’s poems, I can clearly see that the author’s life experiences have colluded and collided into verses that could only have been written by her.
The ultimate success story?!
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
