To feel alive.
This was perfect. I was especially moved by the paragraph that began "Because every moment in life has led to this one brushstroke." And then it's gone and another follows. Each word, each poem, each experience revealed grows inside the artist/writer and yearns to be shared. Lovely, Tabby, absolutely straight into the sternum!
Too true, a magnificent journey. And when a group of people respond to a prompt and come up with totally different works, it's especially so.
Oh Constance - thank you so very much. it leaves me without adequate words. so I won't try. ever grateful that my work and this piece has touched you. be well. T
