Good morning all.

Thankfully I caught up and am on the proper letter for today. "K" is a great letter with perfect balance. I enjoyed writing today's post. It is something that we ALL have experienced at one time or another.

I decided to visit Ancient Greece today. Little did I know that this author had a little help from a friend....

Have a wonderful day today everyone! See you tomorrow.

Lapping on the shores of Chios, a young Homer perches on an jagged rock as he stares out to sea. Beads of sweat form on his brow as he scribbles words on wrinkled parchment.
In mid sentence, the scratch of his stylus came to an abrupt halt.
He raises his head, searching the heavens for inspiration. As he lowers his head, the artistic scroll mocks him.
“Why has my muse failed me? Where is she now?” He looks up at the heavens once more. “Oh, daughter of Zeus, why have you forsaken me?”
A pure white cloud shifts over the sun, shading Homer. With many twists and turns, it configures into the shape of a beautiful young woman draped in flowing robes. 
She nods to Homer and lifts the writing tablet in her hands.
Tears roll down his face, as he quickly snaps up his parchment and continues to write. A smile crosses his lips. “Thank you, Kalliope,” he whispers.

Isn't a great feeling to be all caught up? I never have it, mind you, with all the things on my shelf of things to do! Yours is always a melodic, evocative sigh of prose. Thanks, Roland

I'm not sure what your theme is yet, but I liked this post! Will be working to catch up on your previous posts too, now that I'm home :)

Lovely. I read the last couple posts also, so I'm caught up too :)

This Kaliope is perfect for me today, I need some inspiration.

Very nice! Very glad I don't write on stone, by the way. To think I gripe about Word being clunky?! : )

I can't live without the internet and since I got an android, I am even more dependent on it! Gak! Lots of great A-Z Michael. You definitely put some time into your posts!!
