I hope your day is going well. Feeling really blessed this morning, enjoying this life I've carved out for myself, in spite of so many things. Of course, money's always a little tight; haven't "made it" yet; but feeling so rich in so many things, and if God took me tomorrow, I would not regret one iota of today.
I hope this is life for you, too. If not, maybe consider changing some things ... I…Continue

Magic is bubbling up here at Laundry Line Divine.

Breaking Glass Ceilings – (aka Revving up your Creative Mojo)
All writers have one thing in common; they have all tapped into the vein of the infinite with their imagination. Imagination changes the shape of our world, and often, as a writer, we can see things with our imaginations that are hints of a world beyond the senses. Who can say where this amazing skill and gift comes from, which can manipulate the mind to create magic from thin air? But regardless of how open the flow…Continue

On a lovely day almost forty years ago I drove south from my new home in Winslow, Arkansas, intent on revisiting my childhood past. Though Highway 71 had changed a lot, I had no trouble at all recognizing Old Creek Road. Back in the early days it was rutted and narrow and meandered through the remote hollow where more than a dozen families lived. I turned off with some reluctance. This would be hard, for what I had always known was gone. Deep down in the valley where the sun only shines a…Continue

I'm gonna do it...wade into the deep end where it feels like my feet can't quite touch the sandy bottom and I'm not quite sure the water will carry me. I'm talking about blogging folks. Usually I'm quite careful about my blogging...what with the words going out into cyber space for ever and ever...but fresh country brings fresh courage, I guess...my only net this week will be the backspace button as I take up the self-imposed challenge of blogging daily, direct to internet, from the…Continue
I'm sitting, waiting for my Sunday services to start.
I'm in a peaceful, wonderful place.
Quiet hymns are playing.
People are about me, speaking in hushed, reverent tones.
My mind is centred on things spiritual.
Okay, everyone else around me is probably having spiritual thoughts.
I'm remembering my most embarrassing moment in church.
Does that say something about me?
Moving on . . .
In our church, the speakers every…Continue

I finally moved into my new place last weekend. It was exciting. And frustrating. And exhausting.
Everything a move should be, right?
My husband and I deluded ourselves into thinking that this move was going to be easy, and that made it all the worse. Thanks to his job, we had movers to do the heavy lifting and to pack/unpack all the boxes. It was going to be so awesome. And then it wasn't.
First, our little studio apartment did not give us much room to work in once all…Continue

Mistakes can teach us, but only if we make them and if we let them.

I wrote this poem right after September 11, 2001. It felt like my heart was ripped apart and 10 years later, the pain still feels so raw and exposed.
I don’t understand that kind of hate.
But today, I am reposting the last poem I wrote. Will I write another? I don’t know and part of me does not care. September Mourn was my chance to let it out all over the paper. When I read it, it makes me cry. Not because I am such a great writer, but because I have lost…Continue
