My Story and Surviving Domestic Violence - February 2010

As February started, I had hurt some rumors that he was married.  Not still with her but that he wasn't divorced.  This is one of the questions I ask from almost day one of meeting someone that I am interested in dating.  So before I asked him, I looked online.  All that being public record, I couldn't find one place where it indicated they were divorced.  I decided to ask him.  He gave me some story that he thought…

My Story and Surviving Domestic Violence - January 2010

New Years was really good.  We had a party with our friends at my house.  Lots of food, drinks and DJ.  People had a great time and so did we.  What happened the month before seemed to be gone.  He is from Jamaica and they are really into soccer and he was.  He found a league and joined and January started practices and games.  The boys and I always went to watch him practice.  We always did everything together.…

October

October might be my favorite month.  One of my daughters was born in October, and she is a magical creature out of a Grimm fairy tale.  I love fall, and the spirit of Halloween.  It is whimsical and dark both, a contradiction that children seem to accept more easily than adults. This season evokes magic and adventure, the possibility and unexpectedness of fright, reminding me of how I felt as a child reading The Wrinkle in Time.

The days are shortening rapidly, the air is…

Comfort's Cost

She knew
too 
much 
of her own unhappy 
to be 
carrying 
anyone else's. 
But 
still she longed  to 
comfort 
others in anguish, 
no matter the burdening 
cost.

Now available: 'Stones in the Road: Poems of Grief and Growth'

Hi, friends. 



I hope this post finds you well. This week has been very significant for me, as I've just released my first poetry e-book. Rather than jump into the 'river' that is Amazon publishing and formatting, I decided to compile it myself. 



The pieces in the book are those which I had difficulty placing through traditional means, and eventually tired of trying. Fortunately, the 'tiring of trying' coincided with recovery from the experiences which prompted the bulk…

Cloaked

She looked
for him
deep
in his eyes
and
found a masculinity cloak,
shielding
any
pure-love-intentions.

or is it all pins and needles. over lunch, we discussed.

i chose the duck wraps, minding my pronunciation. she pointed

Are You Choosing Wisely?

Are you choosing wisely…choosing friends, I mean. Think about the people you choose to spend time with. Does it make you feel good to spend time with them; do they make you feel happy, build you up when you don’t feel so good about yourself (which happens to the best of us) and do you do the same for them?

Do…
