today’s the day

today’s the day I show my art

the pieces that have had my laser focus

for the past few days

I still can’t believe I said, “Yes” so fast

without anything ready to show

with a week’s notice

and other activities scheduled as well

amazingly it all came together

with my husband’s help

and encouragement

mostly he gave me the space

to create

and only called me stubborn once

I owned it and agreed

I kept saying, “This just feels

like too good

of an opportunity

to miss”

he understood

he did

and now



and nervous

sums up the jangle in my stomach 

details to see to 

things to do

one more piece of artwork

to finish and get framed

first thing this morning


today’s the day
