I am still teetering on the emotional and physical fronts. I know this too shall pass. I was doing some research and confirmed that the Darvocet can have adverse affects so it is good that I am not imagining things. I guess I just need to wait until it works itself out of my system.

The other day in class, we did an exercise that I wanted to share with you. It was a fun exercise.

Portrait Poem
Line 1: Write your first name
Line 2: Write four words about you
Line 3: Write Brother or Sister of and then list brother or sister’s name
Line 4: Write lover of and then three things you love
Line 5: Write who feels and then three things and how you feel about them
Line 6: Write who needs and then three things you need
Line 7: Write who gives and then three things you give others
Line 8: Write who fears and then three things that scare you
Line 9: Write who would like to see and three things that you want to see
Line 10: Write where you live; city and state
Line 11: Write your last name

Sweet, caring, fun, quirky
Sister of Bob
Lover of flowers, music and sunshine
Feels strength in faith, power in knowledge and joy in reading
Needs hugs, laughter and understanding
Who gives hope, strength and encouragement
Who fears spiders, heights and pain
Would like to see peace on earth, Italy and many more sunsets
Resident of Santa Clara, CA

Hope you are all having a good week.


  1. Your poem is like you...sweet and unique!

  2. One saying similar to "this too shall pass" that I've often found a lot of solace from is a line from the Aeneid. Roughly translated, it's "Some day, even these things shall be pleasing to remember." As tough a time as you're going through, think of how wonderful it'll be in the future to realize how much you've endured.

    I do hope you feel better soon.

  3. That was beautiful, Katie.
    Hold on, girl - you will get through this.

  4. One day at a time, you'll be ok. Hugs to you, Katie!

  5. Thanks for sharing this Katie I think I will put it on my CrowNology blog. With a link to you of course!
    Hope you feel better soon.

  6. Fun exercise! Hope you are feeling back to your old self soon.

  7. Hugs to ya on the teetering. Great exercise and lovely poem.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
