  1. Thank you! Very last minute - all week I've been trying to come up with something for this prompt!

  2. I love the imagery of the stars on a wheel. And the happy ending.

    I am intrigued by your profession. I've benefited from energy work in past, and plenty of that experience was channeled into my recent novel.

    Off to follow you. New to Trifecta.
