After my blog post last night, I was still thinking about the painting and was moved to write a poem. Again, I’m not a great poet by any stretch of the imagination but I have fun with it and write what I feel. I hope you appreciate it.
For my birthday one of my best friends, Kim, gave me a painting. It brings me such joy that I can’t not share with you.
Can you pick just six words to describe your life? Just a single sentence that could be your own personal tagline?
It might seem strange for a woman in her forties to write about marching band but … Well, I won’t lie. It IS kind of strange but I don’t care. This site is called “Eccentric Randomness” for a reason! The catalyst for this happened while I was driving home and it grew from there.
You may have noticed the lack of Stitch Fix posts after #5. I think in the nine previous shipments, I’ve kept two items – a pink top and a blue cardigan. I was so disappointed in the items I had received I couldn’t even write about them anymore. Lots of ill-fitting, wrong season, or PRINT items. I actually took a little break but then came back for #10…And I loved it!
I thought on Valentine’s Day it might be nice to share most of one of the romantic (not necessarily erotic) chapters from my novel. Just a little somethin’ somethin’ out of Compliments from a Stranger. I hope you enjoy this little excerpt and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
