I may, in fact, be a rhizome.
Consider this Oxford Dictionary definition… “a continuously growing horizontal underground stem that puts out lateral shoots and adventitious roots at intervals.”
When God digs me up and take me home, people will be amazed at the hundreds of still born roots sticking out of this odd and quirky, little writing bulb.
I do so try to find a place to blossom in this profession.
A rhizome? So be it.
