The 3 C’s of Life – another poem

Choices – Chances – Changes If you make a choice to take a chance, to change your life for good, Will the chance you chose to take, turn out to be the one you should? And how do you know which chance to choose, if change is so uncertain, Cause the change you chose to […]

Grand-daddy may I ask you… a poem

Grand-daddy may I ask you, why is the sky so high? Because the birds, with feathered wings, need places they can fly. Grand-daddy may I ask you, why is the sky so blue? Because my boy, it’s one of those things, that yellow would not do. Grand-daddy may I ask you, why is the grass […]

The Night the Fog Rolled in – a short st

With Halloween among us and a recent discovery made, I decided to share this short story with my followers.  I wrote this story for a creative writing class in High School in 1992. My mom helped me edit it and I didn’t change a thing. I hope you all enjoy reading it.  If you enjoy […]

Your imagination may resolve a fight but...

That is what my horoscope said the other day. It didn’t necessarily correspond to the situations of that day, but it is SO me! When I was younger, whenever someone upset me, whenever my mom told me to do something I didn’t want to do, whenever things weren’t going right; instead of saying something aloud […]

The case of the missing sock

Last night my husband asked if I was missing a sock – as he had found one on the floor.  That brought a very interesting question to my mind:  Is everybody missing a sock? Even when you find a sock, you are missing a sock. Follow me here:  A found sock does not mean it […]

Left Brain or Right Brain – Which One Ar

Left Brain: Decisive Logical Accurate Analytical Reason Practical Strategic Control Scientific Realistic Right Brain: Intuition Love Poetry Freedom Passionate Vivid Creative Yearning Peace Artistic Cute picture right? Funny. Eye Opening.  I definitely think they left out quite a few words for either side but they couldn’t list them all – it would be too busy […]

Scorpions in the Bed and Pink Dolphins –

First let me apologize for not writing something sooner – I have been so busy!  Between back to back school readings and library visits, to sales for Dandy Lion and then that pesky running my own website and graphic design business as well as getting the latest Hamilton Troll book featuring Elwood Woodpecker published and […]

Honoring Mom on Mother’s Day

What do you get mom on such an important day? A card? Flowers? Candy?  How about a book written by you, illustrated with love and given with the smile only pride could bring out.  That is exactly what I did to honor my mother, even though my mom is no longer with me… Thinking back […]

Thank You To My Friends

Someone posted a meme the other day that really resonated with me. It said:
“You don’t realize how antisocial you are
until there’s a pandemic and nothing much changes in your life.”
With this stay-at-home order in various cities around me and across the country, everyone is seemingly going stir-crazy. They aren’t used to being stuck at home, having nothing to do… but for weeks – nothing much has changed in MY life.

Imagination is Key – What does that mean
