Wildflowers abound Roaming the outskirts of town Thriving without sound ~~~ Dotting the landscape Of California terrain Cheering up my day If anyone knows what that last one is please enlighten me.
It’s not a premonition To see the day-to-day Of your life on the stage Adapted in a screenplay Lines read in repetition Today, tomorrow and yesterday By those with ambitions Remembering juxtapositions Collecting tickets of admission For quarters of commission In a quotidian disarray Funded by the politicians Made up by the beauticians All ofContinue reading “On Broadway”
I had a lone pine cone, which sat on my patio table for months. After each bout of rain I watched it close-up and bloom again when the sun came shining. Then one day, my Mother asked, “What are you going to do with this stupid thing?” I replied, “I’m keeping it because I’mContinue reading “DIY <$20: Wash, Bake & Paint”
Once upon a time, I shared insights and tid-bits from the monthly writers club meetings that I attend regularly, and since I haven’t written much on my own lately I thought it might be a good time to pick that habit back up. So tune in next week when I share information acquired from theContinue reading “Topic: Those Quirky Rules of Grammar and Punctuation”

Wishing you much light, joy, briyani and sweets to be shared with the family and friends in your life!
If you haven’t already, it’s time to face the social media frenzy head-on if you plan to survive. The statistics presented in this video by Erik Qualman, is both mind-blowing and alarming. Just because you blog and have a Facebook and/or Twitter account doesn’t mean that you are ready or adequately prepared. In fact, youContinue reading “Are You (really) Ready?”
I feel a pulse again, so my writing will continue to live! See y’all soon.
Finally, I can sit back and relax and tip my glass as the boys begin to play their games. Perched on a lawn chair, with other spectators, I await the spectacular fire-show that is about to unfold. It is about time to see the pretty lights. The sun is almost set, and it sits behindContinue reading “Block Party”
He stepped out today in his very best pressed plaid outfit, and added a nice big floppy vacation hat and sunglasses. Ready to go, he slipped behind the wheel to take his lady out for the day. Cruising along carefully with both hands upon the wheel, he steers the yacht with an acute eye inContinue reading “Every Day is Sunday”
W is for… Wacky Writers We are not just bloggers; we serve a purpose and have the courage to chase after our dreams. We are all writers at heart with unique and interesting stories to tell and share with the world at large.

M is for… Motivation I read “My ‘I Need an Editor’ Rant,” earlier by a blogger that I admire and if you haven’t encountered his page yet you best head on over to visit Mr. Hemmingplay for words of wisdom, laughs, poetry, and great story bits. Any hoot, his post motivated me to put my lazy assContinue reading “Motivation: Armed and Ready”
E is also for… Emotional turmoil. The Broken Circle Breakdown You have got to watch this powerhouse foreign language film! This is jammed packed with emotional turmoil about love, life, and devastating loss. It made me smile, laugh, desire, and incredibly sad all at once. There was a constant lump stuck in my throat with tearsContinue reading “The Broken Circle Breakdown”
Happy New Year May it be filled with all of the rich flavors of life!
Chomping bubblegum and licorice Wearing skinny jeans and combat boots Sporting ponytails and crazy polish Staying up late and dreaming First dates and silly crushes Developing hips and busts To be young and growing up *** For my niece and god-daughter, for whom I will roller-skate again. 🙂 Happy Birthday Chasitie, I love you!

Why didn’t anyone tell me the things I needed to know when I originally set this blog up? I’ve been posting here for 51+ days now, and my anxiety has been growing over each and every one of those days as the mass accumulation of clutter built up before my eyes on the home pageContinue reading “Tedious Tidying”
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I wish there was a switch to turn the editing functions on and off because I swear to kingdom come; thy shall be done, as soon the editing unicorn comes and plants its ass on my keyboard. I can deal with the occasional crop dusting that comes out of its rear as it fly’s by,Continue reading “Buzz Kill”
I feel compelled to confess… many things, actually. Honestly, I didn’t expect much to emerge from this blog except to have a little cyber space of my own to motivate me and grant me the permission I needed to set aside my dedication to work and domestic responsibilities before they sucked every last bit ofContinue reading “31 Days of Blogging”
