Emotional Intimacy Question: Challenge
Last week's poetry fishbowl went well. I'm still writing. "Comfort Always" has been sponsored, and will get posted whenever the funds arrive.
Poetry in Microfunding:
There are two open epics.
"Learning the Vocation" belongs to Path of the Paladins. Shahana and company play games in the common room.
"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie tells Pretty Ears what is bothering him.
Weather here has been mild with occasional rain. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of mourning doves, a flock of grackles, a small flock of sparrows, two pairs of house finches, a pair of cardinals, two brown thrashers, a Bewick's wren, a brown-headed cowbird, a gray catbird, and a robin. Currently blooming: violas, violets, tulips, apple tree, crabapple trees, lilacs, gold currant, honeysuckle, lily of the valley, petunias, pinks, marigolds.
