A Couple Key quotes- Miss Livingstone Book I

“The journey for knowledge and the experience of the heart is a path worth pursuing, my dear. All the mechanisms in the world can’t replace what you know and feel.” -Father

“So many thinking people are taken with mere mechanism and dry observation. I would be ever grateful that he brought me to be with him in the West — for education, and affection.” -Miss Livingstone

Seventy-six hours of editing in 30 days! My goal was 75. It was a lot of work, but I’ve really got a handle on the second book in my Witty Miss Livingstone series and a better grasp of the full story arc of the other 3 books to…

Z is for Zowie!

Check out what my actor-friend Paula Spurr did when she received my new book from Amazon…Zowie!

Y is for Yesterday

Wine & Words was a hit! Turn out was great, and everyone enjoyed the quality and entertainment of the stories, stage-plays and poetry that was shared. So much talent in our area!

V is for Voices

U is for Unfurl

Leaves are unfurling and Spring green celebrations are bursting from the trees at last.

S is for Spare Change

Spare Change
Eyes open—propped with latte’s, cropped with bag-and-sag removing eye-opening work

Out of the ether, a couple of my old poems from university days showed up in my Facebook messages today from a friend who was – no doubt is – a brilliant poet. How funny that he still had these scraps and came across them. And how nice that he took the time to share them with me and send them back to my Recollection.

Note: drier should be *dryer*. I’ve come a long way, baby! LOL. The year is missing from the dates, but I’m guessing about ’85 or so.
