The bonus fishbowl inspired a lot of poems, though not a lot of sales.  I'm still writing, though.

I am hosting an Arts and Crafts Festival to connect sellers with buyers. Please spread the word.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics at present.

"To Be Something Stronger and Better" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv. Tolli, Shiv, and Caroline hang out in the workshop after the sculpture show.

"Pride Against Prejudice" belongs to Polychrome Heroics. Find out what happened to Aconite.

The weather has been mild here, and it rained several times. Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of assorted blackbird species, a flock of mourning doves, a flock of sparrows, several cardinals, several dark-eyed juncos, several house finches, a couple of robins, a downy woodpecker, a squirrel, and a rabbit.  Currently blooming: winter aconite, snowdrops, miniature iris, Cornelian cherry dogwood, maple, hazelnut, crocus.  Daffodils have buds but are not open yet.
