When The Village Comes Together

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.

      Thank you. This is exactly what the Village is supposed to be for. We take care of each other. This is what “together we’re stronger” means, isn’t it? It was so wonderful to be a part of something so big and beautiful.
      And I am so glad it touched you. 🙂

      This is why I am so glad you tagged me to be in the group. I have already had experience being a part of The Village. I am so grateful to even be able to share this story. It’s a beautiful, true story in which I got to be an every day angel without wings. I received so much more than Rhonda did, which is always the case when you do something with a sincere compassionate heart. It is an indescribable feeling.
