Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity, in a creative community, to acknowledge and share your own gifts, or be inspired to dive into new ones! We will teach you tap steps, and with these tools, we will journey into our hearts to explore and celebrate the human journey, honor its triumphs and challenges, and spark new breakthroughs in the art of living. We will create rhythms, rhymes, celebration and joy with our feet, voices and bodies. And we will deepen insights into our personal journeys through reflection, contemplation and conversation.

Sharpettes and Annie Ruth’s Truths, December

I began creating what I call Sharpettes over 30 years ago. As a speaker and writer they became my own way of sharpening my understanding of the meaning, power, and energy of a single word. I am sharing them publicly now in hopes that you will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

The first line is the word.
The second line defines or describes the word twice, 4 syllables for each attempt. You may place a comma or semi-colon between each attempt. So, the second line has a total of 8 syllables.
The third line is a simile. It always begins with the word “Like”, and paints a picture of the word in 10 or 11 syllables.

On some Sharpettes the 4th or 5th syllable of the third line will rhyme with the word on the first line itself. This can yield another insight into the word chosen, and provides a unique and fun poetic challenge.

High jinks
Mischievous pranks; rowdy, playful
Like the antics of bored cats, dogs…and teens.


Annie Ruth’s Truths are my renderings of folk wisdom and country common sense, gained from a lifetime of listening to my mom, who has a unique way with words, as well as a witty, joyous and playful attitude to go with it! Always fun or sassy, they tell the truth and can make you laugh, shake your head and go “Hmph!” or even make you shout, “Whaaat?!”

Annie Ruth & David Sharp

Annie Ruth, 80 years old, is making some of her famous dressing the night before a family dinner. While pouring the sauce over the stuffing, she says:

“Oh, I forgot to put in a couple of ingredients in the sauce.”

Son David, (being a smart aleck): “Well, let me put my finger in it. It’ll add whatever’s needed.”

(Laughter from the family members present)

Annie Ruth: “Well, wait. Let me heat it up REAL hot first, then you can stick your finger in it.”
