Backtracking to my post from January 23rd, I have an ammendment. Clara’s name has changed. I can’t help it – she insisted. Here it is:

Clara Rose Bosworth.

A worthy name, I must say. And she does know better than I.

I’m starting to get to know Clara Rose and I have to admit that my first impression of her was not quite accurate. I had her pegged as strong-willed and although I think she can hold her own without backing down, her seemingly stubborn exterior is a cover-up for the fear and hopelessness she feels.

Oops, I shouldn’t have said that. Clara is giving me a nasty look.

Did I tell you that she is a librarian? Go figure. (Another nasty look.)

Clara Rose’s story is beginning to unfold in my overactive imagination, and I am looking forward to hearing everything she has to say . . . and even the stuff she doesn’t want to tell me. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s a pretty brave woman. (I can see her out of the corner of my eye, looking at me with some skepticism.)

I don’t want to say too much more lest I scare the poor girl away. She’s already wondering if she did the right thing in letting me in on as much as she has.

Hang in there, Clara Rose!

  1. I have just started on the journey of painting, something that has been pulling at me for years, but I let fear of failure stop me. As I read your post I thought of my painting and how everyone says to ‘let the painting guide you’. You have inspired me to let it lead and even change along the way. I do like the sounds of this Clara girl. Can hardly wait to read you book!
