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.

actors are blank slates
to be scribbled upon by children
and hastily erased-swept
the careful script of maturity
flawless lines and drawings on the black
chalk can be scrubbed away
but a thin coating remains
the shell of roles past
roll upon roll
dusty layers of
with each line drawn
each angle
there is added another
swipe of chalk
until the slate is
crisscrossed with marks
the actor has marks
of personality
many people slipped into one
a face on each corner.
