Ionia is as Ionia Does

Ionia Martin; ioniamartin is a special friend to many writers. She gives encouragement, straight feedback and sometimes a boot in the butt. She always gives the kind of support that a writer needs at the time. When a writer is down; she pulls them up. When a writer is up; she boosts them higher. Her words are always meant to help and never hurt. She is tolerant of those with developing talent yet, unflinchingly critical of those out for personal gain at others expense. She could be called: Big Sister, Leader, Boss, Queen, and to those very special to her, Friend. In short; Ionia is a wonderful person who deserves the best life has to offer.

Tomorrow is a big day for Ionia with projected positive results. To help the positive trend it would be nice if everyone could just think of her tomorrow and say to yourself, “go Ionia.” You can do this even if you don’t know her. I know Ionia will be embarrassed by this cheerleading effort  (normally her dominion) but I just had to do it so that fate gets a push in the right direction.

I wrote this Haiku today for Ionia.

Ionia by John W. Howell

Always there for us,

Leading, building, making good. . .

Now we think of you.

    Go Ionia, go!
    I am keeping fingers crossed for you. Here are my thoughts that I also posted on my blog today:

    Why do we have to be quietly brave,
    Like Vergilius’ heroes,
    be submissive to fate ?
    Better like Homer’s.
    Take a stand to what comes
    challenge the gods’ will,
    and never lose chance.
