Wow -- love this poetry challenge. You are such a thoughtful person. I LEARN so much from you. Thank YOU!

Hopefully I will make time to respond to one of these challenges. Not today, but soon.


"Just...fading. Just needing something, more sun, more water, more something I cannot find in my current environment. I feel, sometimes, trapped like those plants, unable to move, incapable of changing the environment so I can get what I need. So I can blossom again." This is me, as well.

I recently had the chance to talk to our old marriage counselor (not an old man, but a counselor from the days of our marital separation, not seen in eight years). He passed on his number for my husband, but I placed a call.

I described the feelings you just articulated (although my articulation was a bit fuzzier). His assessment? I'm not the kind of person who does well sitting in a parking lot (my stay-at-home existence in this isolated countryside with no intellectual challenges on my horizon). I guess I don't do well floating at the top of a pond, either.

As I was thinking of ways to get myself in motion, blooming again, the only thing I keep coming back to is that I would love to teach a writing class for teens. Wondering how I can make that happen.
