Facing into the light, facing into the dark

The following is from my previous blog, and was originally published in July 2017. In nine days I will have finished chemotherapy. It has not been nearly what I’d feared it would be. The side effects were subtle. The nausea was fairly easily controlled with medication. I got one mouth sore, and my fingertips cracked... Continue Reading →

Patreon, please?

I love the introductory video they show you when you sign up as an artist on Patreon. It points out what a wonderful time we are living in, where artists of all types are free to create and to share their creations with the entire world through the internet and other modern technology.

It’s so good to be loved

I had the most interesting experience this week. I passed out in my house and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance. I'd been to the zoo that day, with my daughter, my son and his wife, and my two grandchildren. All day I'd felt kind of weak in the knees and shaky,... Continue Reading →

My kids bought me an iPad for Christmas last year (best gift I have ever received ... well, at least since I've been... Continue Reading →

Sorrow and loss

This morning I was looking through some of my old writings, and I came across a poem I wrote a few years ago. I love poetry but don't write it often.

Words

I guess I have always loved words. I loved them when my mother read the same stories over and over to me when I was a child.  Honestly since elementary school I planned to be a "writer."  From adolescence I began taking my deepest feelings and pouring them out in poetry.  I have kept journals...
