Countdown to Friday

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

      I am so very glad you got to read this. I do indeed know how very special your husband is. Ty was a great friend to me and I knew back then how wonderful he was. He’s one of those people who lights up a room by walking into it. I truly believe that people come into our lives for a reason, and often we aren’t able to know what that reason is. I think Ty was brought into my life to show me what a good man is, and how to model my own life and my sons’ lives as well. And I am so glad he has you who, from what I have “seen” makes his life just as rich and rewarding. Bless you two. And thank you for being the people you both are. ๐Ÿ™‚
