The Entr’acte

Haiku & Illustration


The entr’acte begins,

With the music as our guide,

Slip, kick, one, two, three.


(Repeat)

I’ve gotten so used to posting daily that I felt incomplete before bed. I thought it would be a fun time to present a brief intermission; a song and dance, and a little haiku.

I don’t have much to say. Today was one of those lazy (or lethargic) days for me, although I did clean some clutter, and I went to lunch with my dearest friend – so it wasn’t exactly productive, but it was definitely quality time. Anyway, I’m stuck on Scarlett and Mrs. Moonie, and I’m brainstorming ideas for the new story. I can’t wait!

I didn’t want to rush it, and today’s word challenges just didn’t go with the theme. Plus, I’d like the intro to be intriguing and figuring out good beginnings is one of the hardest parts!

Also… in putting this post together I learned the word entr’acte: the interval between two consecutive acts of a theatrical or operatic performance. In plain English, I guess it means intermission – haha. I’m not French, and I don’t really attend performances (except concerts now and then), so the word is brand new to me. I figured I’d mention that in case I’m not the only one who’s never heard it before.

I think my dancers almost look like they’re line dancing, haha! Not really what I was going for, but if I remove the canes and add cowboy hats maybe I can recycle it someday.

Anyway, that’s about all for now.

Peace & Love!

The Last Dance

I may have gone a little overboard with the “mock” glass effect here, but I wanted to see if I could make it look like real glass on this one. No one has ever accused me of being too subtle, that’s for sure.

REFLECTIONS PART TWO—Postponed Indefinitely.

I didn’t think about last night’s “reflection” prompt at all. I decided it wasn’t the direction I wanted to go and I had a lot of wrapping to do. With all that’s going on right now, giving myself one more thing to do and/or think about is kind of crazy.

I’ll write again when things cool down.

So… that’s about all for now. Have a beautiful week everyone! Off to slumber…
