So far, so good! Half-way through the month and this is #15 of 30 Poems in November to benefit the Center for New Americans. Today’s theme is NOPE. Remember, the themes were imagined by my kids who are each creating 30 new drawings this month as part of our fundraiser. Their themes are... interesting.
