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: Jubilant

This week's Five Sentence Fiction is Pick Your Own, so I chose the world Jubilant.


How does one describe a feeling like being lifted up into the air, resplendent with golden wings and crisp bells tolling over the moors? Do you feel as swift as the ocean of a thought, running hither and thither and drifting lazily from simile to simile? Or is it a simpler feeling, like dipping your finger into a dish of ice cream and bringing it slowly to your mouth, premature smile floating on your lips? When you hear it, is it poetry, is it the stomping of hoofs and the rushes of animal breath, or the sound a single blade of grass can make when it bends in the wind? Is it the joys and sorrows of the world, or just you with your notebook, playing with your imagination?
