Lurking In The Shadows……

My Last post was Day 8 (DUH) So THIS post is day 9 of My Blog along….and tonight you get a QUICKIE!!

I Lurk in the shadows, hoping no one will see, do you think they will notice? If I stand behind that tree?  I’m odd and Unique, and it might seem that I sneak, But I’m really just shy, and for the life of me don’t know WHY!  So Forgive me for hiding, my confidence was sliding.

Hows that for a quickie? I noticed by reading the many blogs in the blog along…and I do read them all, that there are many of us that are VERY self conscious, or afraid…..Your not alone….I struggle often, I am doing my best to get past that person in me that is so damn scared all the time! Here is My corresponding art for the Day!


Enjoy….and since I am posting so Late?! Have a Wonderful Sunday!!

    Love the page Dawn. And I can relate to the fear and hiding. I tend to vacillate between hiding in the shadows, shining, and then hiding again.
