At Real Toads Transforming Fridays Hannah has us creating a voice for plant or animal from the savanna. I chose the giraffe. They are such fascinating creatures.

Margaret Bednar at Real Toads offered the artistic talent of her daughter, Chelsea, as inspiration for us to create. Chelsea's beautiful face painting is based on the African goddess, Yemaya Oshun. I chose the story of Oshun's visit to Oggun, the god of iron and war, for my piece. African Mythology
Izy at Real Toads challenged us to create a list of three words or phrases specific to the worst job we ever had and craft a poem having nothing to do with work. My three words are in the title to my poem, dirty, cheap, sticky.
My worst job was when I worked at a catalog company called, National Bellas Hess. When catalogs came back because of address problems I had to tear off the front and back of each one returned and place them on pallets. Then I was instructed to go downstairs and guess what? Yes, you are correct. I had to glue on a new front and back to each one. It was a mess.

Violence against women is a personal issue for me. I am a sexual abuse survivor and have known two precious young women who were murdered. It is cause I am very passionate about.
