Well-Tempered Bards

I’m A Well-Tempered Bard

I Got Nothing


For my birthday, Lizzi gave me the best birthday present…she made me a bard over at her poetry blog! So, today I posted my first poem there. You should go check it out. πŸ˜‰

In other news, there is no other news. I had what felt like a very long weekend. I began and finished reading a good book (Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige), continued working on knitting a shawl (not as old-fashioned as you may think), went to a Drum and Bugle Corps performance, and drank copious amounts of tea because allergies. Oh, and I also had an idea for a story about a carnival and an angel and a boy named Julian. We’ll see where it goes.

For now, I’m just taking things slow and thinking school needs to start soon.

Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.

    COOOOOOOL! I’m running over to see your poem in a sec, but the Drum and Bugle Corps sounds FABULOUS!

    Well done you for all the tea and coping *HUGS*

      I was a little disappointed because it wasn’t exactly drums and bugles. It was complete marching bands but it was still awesome because it was marching bands. And the music was gorgeous and the weather, though humid and hot, was nice once the sun went down behind the treeline. It cooled off quickly then and made it really enjoyable.

        That sounds like a really fun time! I like marching bands – I think they’re marvellous fun, and so utterly UNLIKE anything we have here.

        But bugles – make me think of the Andrews Sisters’ song…and I LOVE that πŸ˜‰
