  3. My apologies for writing real dark to this sweet picture.. but somehow a nude woman lying like that made me think more of abuse than tenderness.....

  4. I wrote about a summer image with a twist. I look forward to the prompts each week no matter what they are. I had fun as usual and am surprised I'm so early. Good luck everyone!

  13. I would have left a comment for Hamish, but wasn't able to do so directly on his blog and couldn't find an email, so just wanted to say that his response to the prompt has such a lyrical quality about it that really adds to the feeling of being 'stirred.' Lovely.
