soar higher

This little bronze piece, sculpted by Dave Rizzo, sits atop my writing desk.
She flings into space. Arms outreached. Full of trust, hope, abandon. The interplay of shadows on the wall offer depth and contrast.
As I place a stamp on an envelope today and entrust my words to the post office to deliver them to an agent, editor, or literary journal, I fling my writing into the world.
Hope someone catches me.

  1. The faster you fling, the more they tend to catch! Fling away, my friend! Fling away!

    Love the sculpture - I have something similar on my desk -- one of those Willowtree sculptures called "Happiness" with the following underneath the title -- "Free to sing, laugh, dance...create!' Sounds like we're on to something great!
