Apologies–Some of my readers aren’t able to view the photo in at the end of this blog and for those who can’t, this little romance will make no sense whatsoever. Please bear with me until can I get it corrected (not much chance ’cause I … Continue reading

The Longterm effects of Gravity and Other Things About Turning 50 That Suck

I managed to get through my forties relatively unscathed. A few lines around my eyes, a little bit of cellulite here and there. Nothing devastating. Then I turned 50.  And everything changed. Did you know that after you turn 50 … Continue reading

Headless Heroes

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed a shortage of heads lately? The first time it caught my attention was when our son got married a few years ago. Actually, that’s not accurate. Despite the fact that the wedding was on Halloween, … Continue reading

The Dark Side

I’ve gone to the dark side. It isn’t my fault. It was my husband’s idea. He’s the one who went on Amazon and ordered the Kindle. He thought it would be a nice Mother’s Day gift. It was. And now I’m hopelessly in … Continue reading

The Wayward Muse

I recently flew to Texas to attend my nephew’s wedding. I had a great time. The ceremony and reception were held in my brother and sister-in-law’s backyard. The wedding couple had chosen a Renaissance theme and the bride made and decorated the yard with green … Continue reading

A Day in the Life

I know of a number of writers who have managed to build successful careers between wiping noses, bandaging skinned knees and doing all the other things that the raising of small children entails.

Breaking the Rules

I’m not sure how all the various rules of writing came into existence, but I think we’ve got more than we need.  Some rules make perfectly good sense, others seem to be the product of some word Nazi who doesn’t have enough to … Continue reading

Creative Uses of Words that Begin With the Letter F…

I love words. Long and short, serious and ridiculous, (with the exception of chortle–it’s a stupid word and I refuse to use it) and even the words I’ve never been able to pronounce correctly. (Like earsling. It always comes out ear sling, even though I know better.) … Continue reading
