with thoughts of Spring, wrote the original version last year while observing nature – I consider this a new piece, heavy rewrite
from the past…rewritten with words toward the future…thank you
I hope this piece does justice to the wonderful creative appreciation going on this month: Children’s Book Week (4/30-5/9) in homage to my favorite children’s book; Pegasus, The Winged Horse, A Greek Myth Retold by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The illustration is a cover detail by the talented illustrator Herschel Levit. The writing also pays homage to National Poetry Month as it suggests Ithaca, legendary home of Odysseus. Thank you
I challenge myself to write relationship pieces that don’t read too sappy-it’s not always easy (as perhaps the lover was here😉)
grabbed a line or two from one of my older pieces, added some newer art and thought about what transpires between pen, paper and brush
unsaturated the paint on my silent gal portrait, another writing piece dusted and remade-thank you
I truly enjoy returning to older pieces and completely reworking them. I rarely like my original versions. I hack away the meat until only the marrow remains, then I throw out the skeleton and bury the bones.
resurrected piece given a word-lift – thank you
