Savory Bites to Measure
Supper planned tonight Savory bites to measure Family, pie, and wine I created the image using ArtRage and wrote this haiku. This is my post for Day #24 in #NaBloPoMo November 2016. Let’s go, #NaBloPoMo.
My head aches from my clenched jaw. My soul heavy from my deeply settled ire. My legs blue from my missed steps. ________ Feeling a bit out of sorts today. I overslept, then I failed to take my daily walk. Oh well. This is my post for the Day 13 of #NaBloPoMo.
Time wraps around my wrist with steps and other activity stats crouched nearby. I feel their stares. I hear their notifications. I watch their progress.

As we chopped, cracked, poured, simmered, and braised the food, we shared fantastic tales of childhood drama…

Healing My Soul with Chocolate
Friday, November 7, 2014. I doodled this image on my iPad using #ArtRage. I found inspiration from this prompt from Writing.com: “You the healer, send positive feelings to chocolate bars to use them as medicine.” Of course, I do this every time I see chocolate.
