Compassion In Action Day 2: The Village Circle of Life

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

  1. This is the first time to your blog and it was because I am also signed up the #1000Speak compassion post but when I got here I fell in love with your friend. I am an Alzheimer’s Caregiver to my mom and take care of her 24/7 and also have premature grandchildren who are 3 months old and were due only a couple of weeks ago. We need more people to be just like her! Thank you Terese for your lovely words. I will be returning to read more of from you in the future. It is very nice to meet you!

    Thank You so much Rena. Life does want to get us down sometimes but we have to hold our heads up high. I know what it is like to care for a parent. I cared for my father until his passing 17 years ago. I had to grow up really fast due to I was only 24 years old. Keep your head up high and remember you do not need to get on your knees to pray. God will wrap his arms tighter in times of need. I wish your mom, grand babies and family many prayers. Have a blessed day.

      Actually, that is NOT a live interview. Not to my knowledge anyway. Although, how cool would that be?? I found that on Youtube and decided I wanted to post it but I wasn’t sure how it would fit in with my post today. But, you know, Terese’s story tied it in after all. ๐Ÿ™‚
