    Love this, Joyce! Perfect for this hot and humid day, when even mustering a verb seems like too much work!

  2. Joyce Says:

    Amen! Thank you Hannah!

    The end is simply the best thing to happen. Defintiely you can start with a line, think of end, but when it comes to entire text, there is always a second thought that is being given to each and everything including the start. Thus what you have mentioned is absolutely interesting.

    Weather??? This isn't about love?? :) Love it both ways…

    Joyce, your five words opens the flow of others. Nice. _m
