One of this week’s selections – “Beauty’s Promise” by Kathleen Overby – could have fit in prose, poetry or photographs. She combined all three creative forms into something else again. Strictly for conveience, I’ve listed it in Prose. It joins a lot of other wonderful things this week.

Thanks for the shoutout Glynn -- and I really enjoyed your critique and suggested rework of Pete's poem. I learned a great deal through the exercise!

Aww. I swear that you and I could have been brought up in the same neighborhood --- when I read your stories of your childhood, I am always reminded of something in mine.

Hugs for including me -- I am totally not in the caliber of these others.

Thank you for your constant support Glynn. I am having fun creating a portfolio of poetry for children ( big and small) the piece profound just slipped out after thoughts of Dr. Seuss emerged. So many talented wordsmiths have gone before us.

I am always humbled when you line me up with so many talented contemporaries - an honor to be sure!
