Soul Matter -Sharing About Writing and Blogging

 I am a story-teller who regaled family and friends for decades with the exploits of my nine kids and  the large menagerie of farm animals, pets and wild creatures which surrounded our small hobby farm. My kids, friends and even strangers came up to me for years and asked,” When are you going to start writing?”...more

THE DECADES OF MY LIFE

It's the end of July.  The theme for this month on NaBloPoMo has been DECADES and today's prompt:What has been your best decade thus far: Your teens? Your twenties?

"The American child is a highly intelligent human being characteristically sensitive, humorous, open-minded, eager to learn, and has a strong sense of excitement, energy, and healthy curiosity about the world in which he lives. Lucky indeed is the grown-up who manages to carry these same characteristics into adult life. It usually makes for a happy and successful individual."...more

Blogger Awards - Catching Up, Once Again

LEFTOVERS AND THE ROLLING STONES

Some songs have magic and it stays in your head.  As Tears Go By is playing for me again. It is almost the evening of the day.  I am showered and relaxed, sipping my tea.  The rice is on the stove, boiling over.  Why is it that I never catch it on time?  Thank goodness for leftovers that go on and on - much like Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3P0COo6jSlY...more
