It was a long sail before us, heading out as day was dipping into night; fiery red and orange contrasting with the deep blue of the ocean, made it all quite a sight!
THE MASTER KEY MASTERMIND ALLIANCE can take you far – as far as your imagination is able – and most likely farther than you can imagine! Imagine that, and you’ve got the start of a fable. The kind of story told in olden times at a large Christmas table. Heroes there were 3, and guess what…one of them is me. Fawn and Stevo round out this galant MM trio. Together we are “tipping point, ” the name you’ve come to know. Off to save this world you see to the best of our combined ability; in the beginning so very slow. Yet, faster and faster as we went, we chipped away the Earth’s cement. To expose with the final peel the finest gold we’d ever seen! As does the part reveal the whole, such did the whole reveal the part; can you guess what this might mean? It meant far more than words can say I — so go, I must, and ask, may I?
The spring that year so full of passion.
The scent of blossoms floated through the air.
The trees on which they mustered, lustered,
As they clustered everywhere.
MY MKMMA WEEK 16 POST ENDED LIKE THIS:
However, I may be a bit biased, so, further evaluation I leave up to you. Please, read Michael’s post yourself to see if it’s true.
One last thought before I go. I need to make my rounds in the Alliances with a comment containing value – something you would want to know. Hmmmmmm
Whether in the rough, or the buff, I believe Michael’s post is a diamond! Have I said enough?
Until next time, when the comment designed for use in the Alliances – alluded to above – makes Page 1 in my Week 17 post.
Their bodies merged and became one!
As I’ve recently revealed in several places – in previous published blog posts and in the alliances, to name just two – any student who falls 3 weeks behind in their blogging puts us on high alert. And if there is still no change in Week 4, he or she is taken off the blogroll. No one wants to see that – especially, us Rovers; so…
Here is some insider news. Say it’s Friday, 12 PM midnight Kauai Time, which means the blog deadline has passed; and you are dangling over the edge of indecision, as if an outside bystander watching your new blueprint and the old duking it out.
Ye old BP knows your history inside and out; knows that if you’ve fallen behind in anything – especially, a little over four weeks – the chances of rectifying the situation may exist, but not for this peptide puffball.
The new blueprint, on the other hand, has been given a taste of the behavior that brings the greatest reward, and is hanging on for dear life. Yet, each minute, each second, each instant that goes by makes it more and more difficult to escape the thought: “the deadline has passed! Even if I were to somehow miraculously publish a blog post right now, it’s still too late to matter.” Each time this thought we entertain, the old blueprint chalks up as a gain, and the knuckles of the new BP grow whiter with the strain.
Don’t let go, because taking flight that way is a great big “no, no!” Of course, you realize, as we all do, we are “Nature’s Greatest Miracle!” However, you’re 103 stories up, and thinking when circumstances are most dire, such as this, somewhere within the evolution of the human species, we were sufficiently “aphid like” to have retained the ability to suddenly sprout wings like they can – well, I’m not sure who told you, because they must be some kind nut — or, at least, a full-blown liar. When it comes to gravity versus wishful thinking, guess who winds up on the pavement – kerplop? The right answer is a fact none of us should forget; otherwise, the tool of choice to pick up what remains, just might be a mop!
Salvation in the situation is surely to be found in the world within. Generally, that’s the place all of us should begin. We surely would find, unless we’ve completely lost our mind; something so elementary to understand: when offered, grab that helping hand. Does that still apply, when a hero is our guy? When on the hero’s journey, if you wish to reach the end, one thing that is for certain, it helps to have a friend!
Is there anything else we should know, before the hands of time tell us, now is the time to go Did I mention “insider info?”
Word count: 472
The silence of the sea seemed to follow our return;
Turned to ashy gray the surrounding bay,
Where a few lights burned more brightly
To remind us the worst was all behind us,
And what remained, still okay.

The performance which follows comes from THE VOICE 2015. Although Jordan Smith took home most of the marbles that year, as you will be able to tell when you listen, Madi also spent some time enjoying the limelight!
This is her vocal interpretation of “Songbird.”
The passion of their kiss made it clear at the start,
A bond already forming, as they traded heart for heart!
