Two Sentences Tuesday #02

At a passing glance, the gnarled, stumpy branches and massacred bark of the majestic river Red Gum could have easily been mistaken for a lone pillar of deadwood; battered and ravaged by time and the natural elements. Silent in concentration as the words of the Elder reverberated in their ears, the participants gathered around the wide girth of …

An abundance of energy

I want you to think about someone you know who is an extrovert.  How would you describe them? I'm guessing you've probably picked someone who is really outgoing, confident, loud and out there right?
