The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

Jazzy Book Sale

Jazzy melodies float around my head
The spines are broken and cracked. Pages dogeared from years of love.
Soft saxophones and a piano. ragtime.
Some are thick and the print
As small as the stitches of an expert sewer.
Someone croons and sings of love. His voice so smooth it could be
Melted chocolate.
The books need me. I need them. I bend and pick them up out
Of the old cardboard box with Office Supplies on the side.
Feel the old, fraying covers.
Trumpets blast and drums roll. Leisurely swing tunes.
With the pile in my arms, I walk to the desk.
With a spring in my step...
