Plain - IF


This is posted in response to Illustration Friday. This week's prompt is "Plain". I'll never forget that life-altering trip in my early twenties, driving across the US from coast to coast and coming upon Kansas and seeing the open plain for first time, I wrote in my journal that it was like "an ocean of land".

Dear fellow bloggers, I will be spending less time with blogging so that I can focus my energy on creating my online portfolio for getting a new graphic design position. I will be posting some and commenting here and there. I will miss the regular visits, but will not be gone forever. Enjoy your journey through the open plains. Peace to all.

Good luck with what you do. I too need to get serious with my (writing) portfolio. I believe the blogosphere has helped me get to a place where I can do that.

This is a great piece, and so is your commentary.
