16 slices. I am “seeing” the world with new eyes. Yesterday morning I even narrated and recorded a seed idea for a poem as I saw the beautiful color of the sky. Thanks for the inspiration.

I joined in on the challenge to motivate myself to make a habit of writing every day, and so far I have kept up! 15/15. I just have to tell you that this is the most fun I have ever had writing! I am finding it is like a puzzle. I love the creativity. I love the challenge, and I am addicted to the comments. Is there a 12-step program for slicers in April?
