The New Look

Hello everyone, I’d like to know how you like the new look of my blog. I switched the theme so it will read better on various devices. There is still  fine-tuning left to do but I will get to it. Please let me know what you think. In other news, a little story I wrote is now published within the winter issue of Spotlight On Recovery magazine. The article is titled Salute to Strangers. Oh, and the current header  image is a mixed media: colored pencil, magic marker, water color, and a smidgen of acrylic. It is the bottom half … Continue reading The New Look

A Little Life Update and Adventure: Part 1

Hello all. I haven’t posted in a long while but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy with life and writing related projects. I’ve been working hard. I hope to share some good news about a couple of writing projects real soon. We also have a brand spanking new grandson. Here he is saying his first hello to y’all. My husband took this photo about two hours after our grandson was born. He was born on October 30th and we drove through wind, slam-pouring rain, traffic galore and got lost twice before we found the hospital. What an adventure-filled night! … Continue reading A Little Life Update and Adventure: Part 1

The Home Office: Fall Clean Up

I’d like to welcome you to my office. The doorway frame remains unfinished–another project for another day, but come on in. My post have been few and far between these last few months. I worked so hard on book edits and formatting that I experienced severe eyestrain and made a visit to the eye doctor. A pair of new glasses should arrive sometime next week. And, Lord knows, there were ample household projects to separate me from the computer for a while, such as cleaning and reorganizing. September and October have been my months for cleaning and organizing the household … Continue reading The Home Office: Fall Clean Up

LOVE CONQUERS TIME

July 15, 2015—Incredible things have happened during the past 40 days of my life, both good and bad. A Loved one I hadn’t heard from in years wrote me a hello, I remember and think about you. It’s warming. It’s like sipping hot spiced wine next to a fire while watching snowflakes drift and swirl outside. A Loved one passed on, perhaps upon the day I called and left his family a message. My call was close, real close, anyway.  I was thinking of them . . . of him. This loss is raw. Is there a class that teaches … Continue reading LOVE CONQUERS TIME

I’m afraid of loosing my opportunity to meet you all. I sure hope to meet you all somehow. I went ahead and tagged this post Writing 101 with … Continue reading Writing 101: Aftermath

The Right to Marry and Childrearing

The Right to Marry and Childrearing By Leneé Cobb This article was prompted after reading Ivaberanek’s very thoughtful article titled Whatever you say, say nothing. I began to write my feelings into her comment section and it didn’t take me long to conclude I had more to say than would be feasible to merely comment about. I’ve also read this subject covered by a couple other bloggers here on WordPress. It is a divisive subject, a private and yet public and political subject. Nevertheless, for those willing and brave enough to tread deep waters, here’s my take. First, though, know … Continue reading The Right to Marry and Childrearing
