Happy Saturday, Beautiful People!

This was so fun! One of my dear, AMAZING poet friends, Joni, (along with her lovely husband, Scott!) and I read each other’s books! It was such a delight and gift both to read her story and to be read by them! We have reviewed one another and I wanted to share our reviews. Her book is truly wonderful!!! (read my review here!) and her review of mine is exceedingly kind and gracious! I invite You to check them out! Pappy the cat didn’t read or review anything but he wanted to be in the picture. How could I refuse that face?

Thank You, Cheers and Hugs all around and have a great weekend! That’s an order! 🤣💖🤗

Happy Saturday Beautiful People!!!

I finished reading a book called ‘The Snow Child’, by Eowyn Ivey, a few days ago and it absolutely haunts me in the sweetest of ways. When I sat down to draw today’s post….this just came out. It’s a BRILLIANT book that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and truly one of the most beautiful stories I’ve ever read. So if You’re looking for something to read….I’m just sayin’!!!

I hope You All have a wonderful weekend! Cheers!!!

Too fun and funny! There’s a wonderful website called Visual Verse. They post a picture the first day of every month with a challenge to submit a 50 – 500 word short story about it. You have to write on their “submit” page and are given one hour in which to do so. The opportunity to play along exists for 15 days, so bop on over if You’re in the mood! They publish up to 100 entires each go round. I tried it a year or so ago and never heard anything so figured I didn’t get published.

Yesterday I loved the pic they sent for March and submitted a 100 word story. This time around I realized they don’t contact people who get published. You have to keep checking the site out. So in looking to see if my new story got published I found my old one had gotten published all those months ago! You can read it published with their cool picture that inspired it at, or with my own, MUCH after the fact artwork below. Yay!!! I wildly encourage everyone to give Visual Verse a shot. It’s sooo fun! And Thanks Tre (she’s a wonderful writer who has been published there a few times!) for putting them on my radar!!!

I can’t remember who said what. It’s all a little crazy-dancy in my mind; blurred inside too many colors and memories that want to impose. He said/she said is too basic. The clock couldn’t stop laughing at our impasse. But right in the middle of a moment that leapt out of silence born from exhaustion; a seed was planted. A seed of love. The real thing. Not lust or want or need or manipulation or tit for tat. The absolute REAL thing. And over time it grew in the moments of laughter, kisses, silliness and gratitude in wonderful pockets when we were truly plugged in. Thank God. Oh, THANK GOD. Now we roam free within the forests of one another. Our indulgences, when ridiculous, merit an eye roll at best and a space in which to stew. But that incessant, “I’m right and You are an idiot and You this and You that and blah Blah BLAHHHHHH!!!!!!!” has chocked on a twig of truth.
