my heart leapt, when he said.


his home, he can see the beauty

there. with reality

and fiddling. films it.


forgets the language, passes

the garage and looks to me

to talk on the succulents

that grow on gabions.


my heart soars that we have

a beautiful home, with

few expectations

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?

    Well, I don't know about you but I am easily distracted. I'm also good at making excuses, just ask my mother. I must admit, I have let life pull my attention away from Jesus and the life He he desires for me. I have let my excuses, stresses and…See More
