IWSG – Sep 2015

Last fall, I leapt from the conventional working life into the abyss…and floundered, grabbing a buoy of tradition fairly quickly. Perhaps it was the discomfort of the unknown. Or the overwhelming freedom, which for some may be fruitful and productive but for myself was a deregulated mess of literary proportions! In other words, I didn’t try very hard at something I only thought of in rosy hues and was scared off easily when sunlight revealed all the colors of the rainbows. But, what is life but to try and fail and try again, right?

Anyway, I hope everyone’s had a much better/more productive couple months.

Up Close

Shadows, Close-Up

What’s an artist to do when work demands constant attention and the bank balance precludes jet-setting? Re-think her existence. And, lo! The Bank of Home, Front Garden Division offers a no-limit credit line for all photo shoots on location!

Path – a Tanka

Path Through Bleakness

Clear path meanders
through bleakness to storms afield,
whose gray consumes all
but a bantam blue patch, veiled
beyond sight in the corner.
