It is not often that I share my space with another writer. I read this essay by Masha Hamilton and was amazed at how it moved me. I wanted to share it with those who follow my blog. I have never before seen a trailer for a book but there is one for Masha’s newest… Continue reading Parenting the Nearly-Grown by Masha Hamilton
It is not often that I watch music videos on the computer. My daughter, just a day or two ago, asked me if I had seen this video of Lady Antebellum’s newest single release. I am in love with it so have to share.
I have a web site other than my blog where I have a lot of poetry I have written over the years. I also have some poetry that has not yet been put online so here is one I came across recently and want to share with my readers.

For those who have never seen them, take a look at the gallery below. Second post… Continue reading Hose Races
We always head over to the parking lot of our local mall to watch the fireworks from the Johnson City Field Days. This year I went with camera in hand. Strange as it sounds, I think the one pic that didn’t distort or streak at all was the one taken on my mobile phone. That… Continue reading Labor Day Fireworks
I was talking about journalling with a friend over the weekend. It is something I have done for years but now I tend to just do so on here. I do tend to keep some items more private than being on my blog and do those things in a journal. I tend to keep my… Continue reading Gratitude Journals
The title intrigued me – The BlackBerry Diaries: Adventures in Modern Motherhood (ISBN 978-1-55470-154-4). I have always wanted to know what a blog would look like in print.

I opened up The BlackBerry Diaries while having lunch at Smart Monkey Cafe… Continue reading Book Review – The BlackBerry Diaries
