On Being In A Critique Group

I have spoken on here about how much I love being in my writing critique group. I love it. It has been such a saving grace to me in more ways than one. It is my main social activity, and I really don’t like missing one meeting. Janaury 2015 marks my...

Monday’s Muse: Poetry for The Book Thief

Last night I finally got around to watching The Book Thief. When I first learned about this movie and the book, I wasn’t all that interested in it. I had too many things going on at the time. After watching it last night I regretted not going to see it when...

My Texas Is Showing

I am not a big country music fan, but I am Texan by right of birth, born to country parents and growing up, eventually, in the country. My father and his family were farmers and cowboys. My own Uncle David, whose birthday I share, was a rodeo cowboy for a while....

Where Did My Week Go?

Hello my lovelies! I want to apologize for the lack of activity last week. It was not due to the holiday, though I almost wish it had been that. No, a week ago this past Friday my eldest son came home for a visit and brought with him the Mother of...

Monday’s Muse: Tightrope Walker

My weekend was a long one. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not a big fan of the long weekend when it just won’t end. When it’s a good one, time goes by quickly, right? This one wasn’t particularly bad, but it wasn’t the greatest either. To say I’m...

Friday’s Features: Poetry 180 and The Pink Car

When I began looking at what I wanted to blog about today I really didn’t have anything specific in mind. I didn’t even have a poem I particularly felt like sharing. You see, in two days the one year anniversary of my dad’s death will arrive and I have been trying...

The Tea Thief: Who Really Did it

My favorite commercials right now are the Jaguar Good To Be Bad villain advertisements. I am completely charmed by them. Although, I would seriously like to see Jeremy Irons in one, as well as Michael Ironside. I know he’s not British (he’s Canadien), but wouldn’t that be a fantastic commercial to...

My Partner in (writing) Crime

One of my kids ended up catching something over the weekend and it is passing quickly through the house now. I had to keep two kids home from school yesterday and today, and I woke up this morning with a wobbly stomach. So, this post is going to be super short...

Monday’s Muse: Hope, and a NaNo update

Hi everyone. I don’t know how your weekend went but mine was eventful with more than a little bit of stress. I was thankful for the little bits of sunshine that came my way in the form of my niece visiting again, the books I found at my favorite bookstore (Poetry...

This Above All: To Thine Own Self Be True

I wasn’t going to write this post. I thought of twenty reasons why I shouldn’t, why I couldn’t, and that I didn’t have to, especially since it deals with a bit of controversy. In the end, my heart, speaking ever so quietly as it ofttimes does, reminded me that for change...
