* Happy New Year’s Eve! Thank you to WordPress and Editor Cheri Lucas Rowlands for highlighting my six-year journey of daily posts. You can check it out in today’s Discover post round-up.

Thanks to the post, I’ve also discovered Andy Townend and his Poetry 101 Rehab prompts, a weekly post to inspire fellow bloggers. The above is inspired by this week’s prompt, Odyssey.

Thank you, as always, for reading, and have a healthy and peaceful new year!
