    Poem in Response

    After reading “My Inspired Blog Back Story“, written by the very talented and lovely Arizonian poetess, Michele Lee Sefton – wherein she elaborates upon her decision to pursue writing, discusses challenges, hard work and successes – I was inspired to write this poem…

    From an absence of light came a spark in the dark
       In a call from her dreams to connect with her heart
    Inspiration brought joy with both truth and reward
       When she answered to make a creative fresh start

    NOTE: this poem uses the Preformatted Block, which allows for indentation of text exactly as pasted. However, in so doing, a monospace font is used.

    Famous Saying

    Born in 1896 and 1909, my grandfathers were hard-working farmers, and, in my youth, each shared with me the following famous saying…one of my favorites!

    “A farting horse never tires. A man that farts is the man to hire.”
