Art class went well last night. It isn't so much a class as it is supervised painting time. If you asked for input on a picture, I'm sure they'd give it, but people don't just hover over you telling you exactly what way that specific line needs to go. In short, I'm very happy there.
It actually kind of reminded me of my old gifted class, in middle school. We were allowed to make jokes, and have fun, as long as we were still learning. (It's worth mentioning that there were only eight kids in that class.) 
Anyway, Charlie (my oldest younger brother) came with me, and did his math homework while I painted. He, for the first time ever, gave me a good suggestion as to what to paint! (I was shocked.) I got the painting half finished, and completed it earlier this afternoon, at the store. I also painted random Doctor Who stuff on my left arm. 

Next thing on my agenda is to hurry up and write my entry for the Mort Rouge Halloween phic contest. I have a couple of ideas that I'm working on, but I'm not sure they're workable. I can't go into anymore detail, though: darn anonymity rule...
Off to write!

Eagles and Horses by John Denver
Horses are creatures who worship the earth
They gallop on feet of ivory
Constrained by the wonders, of dying and birth
The horses still run, they are free

My body is merely the shell of my soul
But the flesh must be given its due
Like a pony that carries its rider back home
Like an old friend who's tried and been true

Eagles inhabit the heavenly heights
They know neither limit, nor bound
They're the guardian angels of darkness and light
They see all and hear every sound

My spirit will never be broken, nor caught
For the soul is a free flying thing
Like an eagle, that needs neither comfort, nor thought
To rise up on glorious wings!

I had a vision of eagles and horses
High on a ridge, in a race with the wind
Going higher and higher, faster and faster
On eagles and horses
I'm flying again!

Going to check out the drama school tonight. So nervous. You have to, sort of, audition to get into the musical theatre classes. I'm not sure if they'll have me do that tonight.
As encouragement, I keep focusing on the fact that I've never failed at anything I've tried (except math ).
Wish me lu-- oh, wait, that might be bad luck....

Good news: the Mort Rouge phic contest page has been updated, mentioning the upcoming Halloween contest. I was worried that they might not have one, but happily, it seems I was wrong! Now I just have to wait and see what the theme is.
