I’m happy to share my special friend, Daphne’s, version of “Where I’m From”, the March Writing Prompt & Giveaway at Writing to Distraction:

Where I’m From by Daphne Tieman

I am from the lands of soufflés and flambés, fresh-caught fish and fiddleheads.

I am from the mountain laurel and the pine cone tassel.

I am from maple syrup-scented lumber camps and tripod teepees.

I am from builders and inventors, drunks and teetotalers, prophets and poets.

I am from joy-filled children of God and a blood-blessed Cross.

I am from stubborn women and charming men.

I am from “Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ra” and

“Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sun Shine In.”

I am from tree houses and spontaneous sing-songs.

I am from unfinished heirloom quilts and Love that never ends.
