Thanks for nothing, Liz! Tension and conflict have been introduced, perhaps some longing....today was a much harder choice and I wished I could choose three or four words, or even a group of words to make these lines: "nothing sacred/defiantly I will"...can't help that syntactical chunking!
Joy wondered about the photo that's accompanying this project, and just as Mary Lee suggests in her NPM series about using others' media in our own creative work, I had planned to address that question yesterday. I went back to Google Images, which is where I usually grab a photo to go with my posts, and I couldn't make the papier-mache-30-with-daisies come up again EXCEPT as a part of my own posts! In other words, I can't find it at an original source. I'll keep trying, as I'm much more aware of the need to credit and ask permission now, and I welcome any suggestions about how to do that.
