Faith and courage.
Jordyn Crocker, 16, of New Waterford, didn’t have to search for either because she has plenty.
Sometimes it’s not how much you write or what it’s about, the only thing which matters is having wrote anything at all.
For far too long I have had thoughts and ideas tumbling through my mind only to have them turn to smoke and disappear before reaching my fingers. I have all been searching for a song which reached deep into my heart to give my thoughts a power they have been lacking. An emotion too raw for conscience thought.
I finally found my song…
Origami Airplanes by Songs For Cinema.
With this song playing in the background I wrote the following.
‘All was silent. The stillness both comforting and disturbing. The room was small, just ten feet by ten. The walls a blank white and empty except for a full length mirror which hung opposite the single door. Soft light filled the space seeming to come from nowhere and everywhere at once.’

“At the start of Women’s History Month last year, the National Museum of Women in the Arts posed a question to their social-media followers: Can you name five women artists? In an attempt to bring the undersung work of women in the visual arts to the surface, the museum (and several others around the country) began telling stories and sharing works from female-identifying artists in their collections. The hope was that by the end of March, hungry art consumers — and total newbies — would be able to name, recognize, and admire female artists besides Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe.”
