Poetry and Me

I have been transparent about the fact that I like poetry. I follow a number of poets, and I’ve hinted about an interesting (to me) relationship with poetry in several other posts. I’ve mentioned in several comments, that I might explain the connection at some point, and I’ve been encouraged to do so. Yes, I’m… Continue Reading →

Happiness is a Free Pizza – #SoCS

Welcome to our little bar. It’s time to surrender to Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Today, in keeping with the April A-to-Z thing, she gave us: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘lip.’ Use it as a word, or find a word with ‘lip’in it. As always, use any… Continue Reading →

Beer and a Slice – #SoCS

It’s time to visit the bar for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Linda G. Hill is combining SoCS with Just-Jot-January again, so we get double-credit for dealing with this prompt: “Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: ‘art.’ Talk about something that’s hanging on your wall. Add a picture, if you’d like. If… Continue Reading →

Vincent Price is Dead – #SoCS

It’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday, so it’s time to take Linda’s prompt and head to the bar. Linda sets the stage for this week’s conversation by giving us: “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ‘flower/flour.’ Use one, use both, it’s totally up to you. Enjoy!” She’s kidding, right? If we were having… Continue Reading →

The Contract – An Introduction

When John Howell and Gwen Plano asked for volunteers who were interested in helping them spread the word about the new book they collaborated on, “The Contract – between heaven and earth” I was eager to help. Gwen sent me a reminder; I filed it away under the heading: “For John Gwen” which subsequently made… Continue Reading →

Self-Inflicted Wounds

If we were having a beer, you would be bringing some local news to the bar. “Have you ever been to Old Newgate Prison?” “Not exactly.” “It’s a binary question – you either have or you haven’t.” “We set out once to hike to the prison, but we never made it. It’s a long story.”… Continue Reading →

Happy New Year #SoCS

If we were having a beer, you would find it impossible to not go there… “Can I assume from previous years that you won’t be making any resolutions?” “Yes. Can I assume that knowing that will allow us to move on to other subjects?” “I’m afraid not.” “You boys aren’t going to start this debate… Continue Reading →

Circumstances of Childhood

John made this post really easy for those of us who agreed to help him launch his new book, but I can’t resist adding a personal introduction. I read “My Grl” “His Revenge” and “Our Justice” and I enjoyed all three. When John said his next book was going to be different, I got nervous…. Continue Reading →

Thursday Doors – WVU Surprise

When I was writing about my experience in English literature for last week’s SoCS challenge, I wanted to find a picture of Woodburn Hall, since that’s where I had several English classes. I haven’t been to West Virginia University since 2009, when I took our daughter on a whirlwind tour of some western Pennsylvania and… Continue Reading →
