Knock-me-down quote

“Be wild; that is how to clear the river. The river does not flow in polluted, we manage [to do] that. The river does not dry up, we block it. If we want to allow it its freedom, we have to allow our ideational lives to be let loose, to stream, letting anything come, initially […]

Daisy-doo

Daisy-doo

Sometimes a simple daisy turns out to be not so simple after all. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. But as I moved around the daisy patch our in our back yard, it became evident that these sensational spirals were the norm. Much like working through a maze, I found […]

Addendum …

Addendum …

Yesterday I read this quote by Maya Angelou: If you’re not angry, you’re either a stone, or you’re too sick to be angry. You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger, […]

Boxing day thoughts …

Boxing day thoughts …

Barrie gave me a macro lens for my Birthday last month, about the same time of my last post. But, since then, things kind of ramped up and I went from turtle pace to full bore cheetah run. (Remind me sometime to tell you about discovering Cheetah–my spirit animal.) Anyway, as most of you know, […]

Graduating from snail’s pace to that of a turtle

Aha! It’s only been three weeks since my last post. My goal of showing up every two weeks may come to pass after all. This won’t be too long of a ramble as I’m on deadline. Another goal has been to stop PROCRASTINATING which is my normal go-do position. But I’m allowing myself a wee […]

Zoomin’ along at a snail’s pace

Zoomin’ along at a snail’s pace

Well, it’s obvious. Instead of shortening the time in between my rambles as I had originally planned, it’s taken me weeks and weeks to get back here. Ten weeks in fact since last post. OIE! But I have not only ONE good excuse but TWO. I was a very sick puppy this summer. Slept in […]

Writing Life #5

It will be six weeks tomorrow since I posted something. REALLY? Yes, Sandra, really. In case you hadn’t noticed, time is not waiting for you. Oh, really. Well. Umm. Golly. Gee. Best put fingers to keyboard and come up with something brilliant, eh? Maybe tomorrow. Meanwhile, look at this exquisite piece of art above. It’s […]

Writing Life #3

Wowzas! Grab a cuppa and listen up to poet, children’s writer and essayist Virginia “Ginny” Boudreau as she gives us a behind-the-scenes peek into her writing life. You’ll find her post loaded with inspiration and laced with writing tips. When our dear friend Sandra asked me to share some of my ideas about writing in […]

Writing Life 1

I just started a new category called Writing Life. If writing is in your realm of interests, yay! Read on. If not, I hope you read this anyway—and consider writing. Everyone has a story. Mine, today, is this: Mama always said that she felt closest to God when she was picking blueberries. Thinking about this […]

Author! Author! Chad Norman

Meet Chad Norman. He recently completed his 15th book of poetry, titled Masstown,  which celebrates the once-thriving dairy community just west of Truro, in Colchester County. Through his grandparents, Bert and Gladys, the poems lead the reader back onto the farm. But not just any farm. Masstown is a poignant collection showing memory at work, […]
