A Woman’s Caprice

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    WHOOOAAAA! Badass! Archery? WAY cool. And this changey changey…you’re very different than me. I resist change πŸ˜‰

    YAY to new things happening though. Good πŸ™‚ And MEGA yay to Bards.

    • I used to be resistant as well. VERY. I learned (somehow) that it was emotionally easier to bend than fight the current. I still have some trouble with new ideas but if given a little bit of time, and understanding, I do generally come around. Not always though.

        I’ve not learned that yet. I’m sometimes not very in touch with my emotions, but I’m getting there πŸ™‚

        • Whoa! The rest of my reply to you got eaten! I actually had more to tell you. It was about the archery. There was this little girl there, about 6 or 7 and it was her first time, too. She hit her target once as well but she had this compound bow instead of what I was using which made it so much easier for her to use. Her problem is aiming but, like, she’s little. And she didn’t give up. Kept going even though she wasn’t hitting anything. I was so able to identify! LOL
          She was adorable. She offered to let me use hers when she heard I wasn’t able to pull the string back very far. Totally cute! Compassion in action practised in the wild. πŸ˜‰

          As for being in touch with your emotions, trust me, there is a downside to it, such as being TOO in touch with them. Somewhere there is a balance, and I’ll let you know when I find it. LOL

            That’s so sweet of her. It’s always a lovely moment when a child offers to share or to give of their own ‘stuff’ to make an adult’s world better.

            I trust you. That was my Saturday – too in touch and SWAMPED! I’ll keep an ear out for when you figure it out πŸ˜‰

        • Also, I forgot. I had also said that I thought boxing was pretty badass in my opinion.
