Photo manipulation to go with my poem of the same name.

Dedicated to "rodeorose": who read the poem and told me she could see the image already… I hadn’t intended to make an image to go with it but after that lovely comment I just had to. :-)

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
