Writing Exercise #81

Write a big juicy mythology of someone. It could be a family member or someone you admire from afar, but make sure it's someone who changed a room with their arrival. Even if it isn't true. Be sure to include all five senses when describing their presence. What weather did they induce? What bloomed suddenly? How did the insects react? What bad idea stirred suddenly in someone's mind? What comfort?

(This exercise was inspired by the extraordinary Vievee Francis and her breakneck poem Say It, Say It Anyway You Can.)
