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.

Five Sentence Fiction: Lightning

Standing solitary in the middle of the field, I cackled and thrust my hands toward the sky. The clouds swarmed like ants around me, the grasses whipped from side to side, and my face was lit with the eerie light of the tempest. Summoning all of my strength, I jumped up into the air, rising many feet from the ground with my skirts swirling about me and my wrath. Alighting on a blackening cloud, I began to chant the language of magic and the world started to hum. Suddenly, a fiery finger of lightning lashed out at the grasses, setting the field where I had stood ablaze.
