Neo 70’s Revival Music? Huh?

I have lived in Texas all my life. Growing up in a small town as a teen here was a little like what I imagined being at the tail end of space would be like. By the time all the new stuff reached us (e.g. music, fashion, fads), it was all...

Social Media Poetry? Absolutely!

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was an unusual one. Take social media updates and create found poetry. Interesting. And I knew exactly which one I wanted to do. Happily, I cannot take credit for any of the words in this poem. They are gorgeousness to the power of ten and belong to a...

Monday’s Muse: Verisimilitude

This was a very long weekend. It’s one of those that you want to say ‘can we try again?” But, not me. Not this time. There are some things that just need to happen, whether for good or ill. Getting through something like this gives us strength and teaches us a...

My Birthday Gift To You

I had a fantastic day yesterday, not because it was my birthday, but because I was able to share it with people I care about who care about me. My new friends and old, my family, and my kids, they all came together and showed me how much I was loved....
