On Recieving My First DD

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 28, 2014, 9:11 AM

I know, I know, by now the fact I received a DD is old news. I was hoping to post this journal sooner, but school, homework, and work got in the way. Life does that you, kids. ANYWAYS, there were some things about receiving my first DD that I would like to say.

First off, the DD could not come at a better time. My seasonal allergies have been making me feel really cruddy and seeing that DD... well, who cares about seasonal allergies?! :P I was absolutely elated to see my first DD and on a piece that means the world to me. I love my state, despite the fact I was not born here. But I was so young when I moved here, it's my home state and I might as well have been born here.

When I wrote that piece, I was inspired by thinking about all of the wonderful scenery and unique elements that lend to my state. And thus, "Cresting Peaks" was born.

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has commented either on the piece or to tell me congrats on the DD. It wouldn't have been possible without you! I really appreciate everyone's support when it comes to my writing.

And secondly, I wanted to give a gigantic bear hug and lots of love to Mel, aka hopeburnsblue, for being such an awesome person. She was the suggester of "Cresting Peaks" and it means the world to me that she connected so much with it as to suggest it for a DD. :heart: You're wonderful, Mel. :) I am so happy we've been getting to know one another.

Lastly, I would like to thank ShadowedAcolyte for seeing potential and granting me a DD.

Thank you, once again, everyone who was involved in this process. You guys are amazing!

I appreciate all of your support. :)

Best wishes always,

taken my breath away
like soaring with the lark bunting
and plummeting down
to brush against the columbines.
oh, there's no rush quite like
entering DIA and passing by
the sinister statue, saturated
in blue and adorned with
ruby red eyes,
permanently rearing
it's hooves towards the
rolling plains.
circling the stadium,
a sea of navy disrupted
only by that

we all hate to love
and love to hate.
standing on the back porch,
watching the sun sink
behind the crowned borders
of our beloved state,
there's no skyline
like ours that feels like home
as the fading light reflects
off of the towering city buildings.
swaying and clapping
surrounded by rust red rocks
that resonate with
sound waves and the beating
of our hearts,
and the exhaling
of altitude adjusted lungs.
hiking through blue grama grass
never felt so good,
our red carpet

Guys, I am so slacking. I have a ton of stuff in my inbox to read + comment on, not mention reply to. I'm sorry if it takes me forever! 

2 deviants said Annnndddd yeah.... so please bear with me. :heart:
2 deviants said In other news, one of my favorite people in the world was almost brought to tears because I dedicated my book to her.
1 deviant said So I went to bed, which means I never wrote my poem for that day. :(
1 deviant said And also because I dedicated it to our group as well. :)
No deviants said I came home last night and suddenly felt awful.
