Read about how I learned to see myself as a warrior in the story ‘Munchkin Land’ or skip below to the PROMPT. Being of bookish, quiet character, I never thought of myself as any sort of warrior until I explored this prompt. Munchkin Land I went to an all-girls primary school. If you don’t recognize […]
I thought maybe at some point living in a place where the sun shines almost 300 days out of an average year would get old but was I wrong. I relish the sun anew every day. This past weekend I just went with the flow and enjoyed a wonderful summer afternoon. Sunshine, Jenga, rum punch and live reggae music. Hello summer!

There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back everything is different.
If you get old fashioned enough, you’ll always be in style.

When I was in primary school my father signed me up for every after school activity available. He abhorred the idea of me lollygagging with my cohorts. It is something I was grateful for only many years later. I remember standing in my very first ballet class in a pink leotard, pink tights and pink ballet shoes that pinched like hell. As we followed the teacher in the various movements she came around and critiqued our efforts. The smirk on her face as she approached me was a dead giveaway that I was not doing so well. ‘Ungraceful’. That was her remark. It upset me so much I wanted to quit but my father would not allow it. Having no choice I decided to make the most of it, enjoying every class while ignoring her displeasure whenever her eyes rested on me. My friends and I snickered every time she yelled ‘Fairies girls, not elephants’. Well who said elephants can’t be graceful?
I notice that I neglected to mention that all my art is for sale. Most of my sketches with the exception of a few end up as acrylic paint on a 8×10 inches canvas. Please message me if you are interested in a piece.
