Camp Twitch and Shout Family Weekend 2010
In the cafeteria at Camp Twitch and Shout
We just got back from our second annual Camp Twitch and Shout Family Weekend at Camp Twin Lakes in Winder, GA. And just like last year’s weekend this one was equally inspiring.
Over the past 6 years, I have had the fortune of meeting so many families whose lives have been touched by Tourette Syndrome.
There were several… Continue

women stride by you
in dramatic gestures
out on parade
dressed all in red
making sure to be seen
a game of tag
really want to be it
the ball moves
from court to court
but no one takes a shot
you could call it possession
but it's not that, somehow
women sweep by
as if on stage
while you speak your… Continue

What is your phone number? I don't know. I don't usually call myself!
With the latest technology I find that I have forgotten many important numbers, because they are all in my phone. But where is my phone?
Please someone call my phone so I can find it!

The year 2010 marks one century since the Mormon Tabernacle Choir made their first acoustic recording.
I have personally sat in the tabernacle in Salt Lake City, and listened to the Choir as they were rehearsing for a broadcast. The acoustics in the tabernacle are truly amazing, and I love to see and hear the large organ and the pipes that are mounted on the wall behind the choir. It is overwhelming when so many men and women join together in singing inspired hymns and classical… Continue

Musicians, artists, movie stars, and other celebrities often change their names. Why? I have often wondered that, and maybe you have too.
I mean, who would name their child Lady Gaga for Pete's sake? Personally, I use a different name for my visual art, as well as my writing, than I do for everything else. Am I a schizophrenic? Perhaps.
Actually there are some great reasons why people change their names as artists.…

My recent Honorable Mention essay, "Freedom by Inches."
"What does freedom mean to you? Freedom meant a slew of different things to the women who wrote in. We didn't want Chicken for the Soul-esque stories—We wanted edgy, thought-provoking pieces and you delivered. That was the goal of our foremothers after all. But the word "freedom"… Continue

Tayari Jones on adding conflict to wake up a sleepy story.
When I was in high school, a harsh reprimand was, “Stop instigating!” (Odd diction for kids, but it’s what we used to say.) In a more formal parlance, it meant, stop provoking conflict. While this is a good rule for life, it’s not such a good rule in fiction. In an… Continue

Sometime last year, while reading Patti Digh's 37days blog, I came across a poem by Maya Stein that I loved and clicked over to her blog to read more about her. I've been "following" her ever since. Stein is now planning an intensive eight-week, 30-state traveling poetry project she's calling "Tour de Word" -- a project financed entirely with donations through Kickstarter. Today, I'm featuring a video that describes the project and provides resources for accessing Stein's enjoyable… Continue

It’s taken me some to time to write this in response to recent questioning of the need for libraries in what some call the age of the internet. After I read the story about the Chicago incident and picked up my jaw from the floor, I’ve been pondering exactly what role libraries and librarians play in my own job.
I write fiction, so some people assume I just make things up. Why would I need a library? Well, I do make things up, but I couldn’t have… Continue

I have been following the Magpie Tales blog for a while now and have really enjoyed reading poetry and insights which are prompted from a picture presented by Willow. I'm a bit late, as usual, but this particular picture reminded me so much of a little cottage I went to visit in Chertsey in the early 1990's. The cottage belonged to my ex-husband's great-grandmother, and his grandmother (his mum's mum) lived in it until she married just before world war two.…

There it was among a exhibition of Faberge masterworks created for the House of Romanov, Nestled among the breathtaking gold and jewel-embellished eggs was a small red-enameled flower pot. Atop a small stalk of gold, a diamond-encrusted football sprouted. Slender stands of asbestos poked out from the infantestimal spaces between the small diamonds. A puffy white dandelion seed head captured in the precious materials of a jeweler’s art.
“To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven… Continue

From The Many Shades of Love
By now I'm sure all of you have seen this. If not you will be just as shocked as I was when I first saw it on the news. You ARE reading the dates correctly....it does say 2010-2011 not 1910-1911! Shocking is an understatement! Even as I write this and look at it, I think, this can't be possible, it just… Continue

“So what’s your parenting secret?” a friend asked over coffee one morning.
“My parenting secret?”
“Yeah. You’re raising such great kids. What’s your secret?”
“Oh, it’s not a secret. It’s God,” I answered.
“OK,” she replied, “but there has to be some
kind of formula. What do you do when your kids won’t listen or they fight or they’re just plain lazy or defiant? Or doesn’t that ever happen in your house? I suppose your kids always
