Don’t eat!

Cyranny's Cove


Is the label familiar to you? It probably rings a bell, right?

You know I like to give exposure, and link in people and businesses I like. Well, you won’t get a link today!

I had a rough day today. (not complaining, it happens to all of us, but it is just to set the context) We decided to order some food from a Mexican restaurant I’ve been wanting to try for some time now. You know… Good comfort food, to nibble on, while sitting on the couch… A nice hygge evening.

17h55. I order online, because the restaurant delivers through Just Eat’s website. I prefer dealing with people, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do to get her tacos.

17h57. I get a confirmation by email, saying we should get our dinner around 18h45. Great! That’s more than reasonable.

18h45. I start peeking…

For the love of dogs


At the advice of my bestie and writing mentor, I am posting a chapter of my memoir that recently won honorable mention in a contest. As with many things in life, we rarely take the time to pat our own back or find it in ourselves to be proud of something we’ve done. I know I am one who has always struggled with low self-esteem and when it comes to writing I’m my own worst enemy. But the more I reach out and meet other writers, I learn that writer’s self- loathing is common. We edit, edit, edit, then re-edit again and proclaim our manuscript is rubbish and should never see the light of day.

Well, I’m taking my friend’s advice and posting this. No it didn’t win, but I am happy that it stood out to a few literary judges who read many entries from across the states and…

How To Get Non-Bloggers To Read Your Posts

Elena Peters

Are you stuck in the blogger merry-go-round? Are the only people reading your blog posts, other bloggers? Do you feel like if they had a choice and weren’t “forced” to reciprocate they wouldn’t read or share your post at all?

I hear ya! I know in the beginning, it’s hard to get traffic without commenting on other blogs or participating in share threads. But if those other bloggers are not your target audience, you are spinning your wheels. Case in point: if you skip a day, does your traffic drop considerably? I know you want traffic but if it isn’t the right traffic, you are wasting your time.

There is a way to reach your avatar but you must be strategic. Think about long term gain. It may take you longer to get the traffic you want but in the end it will be worth it. Stop being in a…

The Time To Write…

a cooking pot and twisted tales

All about books, Library, Reading

It doesn’t take much to please me. I’m a cheap thrill kinda girl. One of the simple things I enjoy in life is to sit in a quiet corner of a library and indulge in a book or just to write to my heart’s content but lately, such indulgence has whittled down to such a minutiae degree due to life and its responsibilities getting in the way.

Nonetheless, I have to create the space to satisfy these cravings of mine and I must find the time to write even if I have to steal it from somewhere ‘cos I observed that any week I failed to visit the library at least once, a part of me knows abject discontent. It took me a while to recognize and understand this – during one of my self-help sessions.

For me, this simple act of finding time to write or to immerse…

What does God Require of Christians?


Many Christian denominations, groups or sects down through the years have distinguished themselves by their peculiar beliefs and emphases. The question is, are these distinctions required of the Christian by our God or are they the legalistic impositions of man on fellow believers?
The Seventh Day Adventists and the Churches of God (Splinters of Herbert Armstrong’s Worldwide Church of God) place much emphasis on keeping the Sabbath, clean and unclean meats and Bible prophecy. Pentecostals emphasise the need to receive the Holy Spirit and to speak in tongues. Churches that adhere to the principles espoused by the New Apostolic Reformation movement place their emphasis on engaging in ecstatic “worship.” Other groups emphasise baptism in the name of Jesus only, baptism by emersion only, clothing and headwear differences and the list go on.
Many of these distinctions are not wrong in themselves. The biggest problem with these distinctions is that…

The Sword Of Damocles


Can the poet avoid the Sword of Damocles
Suspended above his head
By the thinnest thread?
His pleas
To those who he has offended
That he is merely speaking the truth
Will not prevent
The descent
Of sword from roof.

The poet’s curse
Is to write verse
That will
Sometimes chill
His readers to the heart.
They will traduce
Him for his art,
But the sword of truth
He must brandish high
Else he will die

Empowered Women Empower Others


I’ve spent the last two months reflecting on my life and what I want from it. The last 1.5 years of my life were spent hustling so hard that I didn’t have time for myself. I had so much on my plate that I was at the verge of burning out, and I was slowly forgetting what I was chasing after to begin with.

Learning to balance out my life has been a struggle, but I finally feel like I’m starting to grasp it better. Working out every day for at least half an hour has kept me in check. Whether it’s after school or after work, I am now motivated to come home at a decent time to go to the gym so I can end the night feeling satisfied after a relaxing shower.

While I’ve been working on myself this past few months, I’ve been soaking up as…

The Sorry Saga Of A Small Remote

Kentucky Angel Flies Again

A small TV remote lived all his life in the pocket of Mama’s lift chair.  One day Mama got a new futon chair, and that night she put little remote on the table next to futon while she slept on that new chair bed.  The next morning as she woke, she accidentally knocked poor little remote off into a trash container that was too close to the table and then added some trash to the container before tying the bag up and tossing it carelessly down the garbage chute.  Poor little remote!  He was sure Mean Old Mama had done this on purpose!  Such cruel old Mama, tossing him away like that!  Well, he would show her.  He climbed out of the bag, inch by painstaking inch.  Huff, puff, rest for a long, long time.  Try again–puff, puff, closer, closer, almost there, puff, puff, huff, puff — daylight!  Success!
