Monday’s Muse: Hope, and a NaNo update

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

    It took me two reads to realise whose funeral you’ll be having next week. The subject just didn’t match the playful words… until I finally got it. I blame foreign culture as well as sickness for the time it took me πŸ™‚

    Good luck with Nano. My project is also at a stand still right now. πŸ™
    And thanks for the poem πŸ™‚
    And now I’m exhausted, so I’ll rest πŸ™‚

    • Oh, Dawn. I’m so sorry you are ill. I have two kids down as well. I hope you get better soon.
      And don’t worry about not getting the joke. I kind of have a weird sense of humor about things. Although we can blame the illness all we want. Makes us fuzzy-headed.
      Thanks for the luck. I need it. Story isn’t really at a stand still as much as I’ve had to put my attention into dealing with an emotional issue in my family life that went into hyperdrive recently. That takes precedence, you know?
      Anyway, take care, drink some tea, and feel better soon. πŸ™‚

        I’m starting to feel better… Or is that my usual pattern to perk up past 10pm? Sigh!
        My project is very important, but I also have to deal with some emotional issues… and yes, that takes precedence. I do hope to be able to write a bit more this week, as soon as I get a bit better…
        Thanks for the well wishes. I have tea brewing by my side, am taking all the care I can (managed to not have to take care of the kids as well as me!) and well… I’ll survive this, I’m sure πŸ˜‰
        Welcome home to Ms Driesmore and I think you’re perfectly right, you need to pay clothes attention to those two. Who knows, amidst the heat and wetness between those two, what may happen πŸ˜‰

    […] actually. I was having my morning cup of tea when I had to get up and attend Miss DriesMore (remember her? she arrived 2 days ago). On my way to help her, Tornado passed by me on his way to the table. I […]
