“Wooooo-hooooo! Shooooore did feel good to see a paintbrush in Paintist’s hands again this morning!” Thalia’s face was dotted with watercolor freckles. “Annnnnnd — we have something new to write about!”
Urania’s eyes were closed and her forehead rested in the palm of her hand. “This will NOT be good for her credit rating.”
“In The Rise, Sarah Lewis said, ‘I still remember the shudder when I sensed a knowing as sure as fact — that I might only truly become my fullest self if I explored and stayed open to moving through daunting terrain.’” Calliope shuddered. “Shore would be nice if Typist’s daunting terrain leveled out for a bit… We’ve got projects to work on!”
Words from Typist:
AAAAAAAACK! I’ve been sent to collection for an unpaid medical bill.
I NEVER miss a bill.
Shorely I never received an invoice in March ‘22… nor a follow-up.
Here’s the good news…
After opening the notice around 8 pm, I set it on the counter and went to watch my hero Uhtred on Netflix.
Daunting terrain is his destiny.
His attitude inspires me to keep going.
Then I went to bed and didn’t lose a wink of sleep.
This morning I did all of my normals and only after eating breakfast did I thumb through the c binder to explore the invoice pocket.
The Gail from days of yore would have tied herself in a knot.
To be buried in lava and not turn a hair, it is then a (wo)man shows what stuff she is made of.
