Wanted: Pep Talk
* poem by Chas Hoppe
It's been one of those days. One of those days. I know you know what I mean. So, instead of wallowing all night, I've decided to be proactive and ask a favor. Can you ask favors on a blog? I hope so, because many of you are not close enough for me to ask in person. I need a pep talk. I need a "you can do this, this is what I like about you, this is what I think you can do" kind of talk. It seems silly to ask, but it also seems silly not to- to try and make it through the muck all on my own when I'm surrounded by such fantastic people. You don't have to comment here if you don't want to - you can email me : brandi dot kincaid at gmail dot com. Please add in appropriate punctuation to save me the spam. Thank you in advance - it really does mean a great deal to me. And hey- feel free to tell me if you should need the same. No need to pretend we're islands in this.
Also, the above photo has been waiting for a proper post for too long (it was an amazing birthday gift from an amazing friend who happens to be a very talented poet). I thought this post would be perfect, because in the glum of this evening, it made me smile.
