Robert Turner

Do you need your “space” to create? A sacred area of peace and tranquility where you can tap into that wealth of creativity you can feel lurking in dark crevices in your mind.

Is it a place no one dares enter when you are in residency for fear of serious bodily harm or a tirade of verbal abuse that will need years of counselling to reverse? I too, once enjoyed my own fortress of solitude, perched loftily behind a kitchen wall and accessed through a narrow passage way.

Those days have long passed, the fortress now abandoned to a hoard of hobbit sized little trolls who exercised squatting rights the moment I left.

For those of you who are shaking your heads in horror at the thought of fellow writer divested of his creative castle, take heed of these words..

FREEDOM, freedom, freedom. Okay so just one word, but repeat…

Welcome Dream Big Partner: Essential Living with Dakota!!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Essential Living with Dakota!



Here is an excerpt from the Essential Living with Dakota’s about page:

I’m a wife of 6 years to the most supportive, caring, loving, and understanding man I’ve ever met. A mom to three wild, rambunctious, stinky, loving, beautiful boys. And an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oils.

I came about Young Living out of desperation. Postpartum kicked my rear the 3rd time around, and I needed to do something to gain some control over my life. Young Living’s essential oils are so powerful and amazing, I got my life back. And I’ve found my purpose in this life to help others find wellness in their lives, to find their purpose, and to gain some major abundance with Young Living.

Whether abundance means getting chemicals out of your home and replacing them with essential oils. Or abundance means having your oils and products paid for each month. Or abundance means taking your kids to Disney and not dipping into savings. Or abundance means replacing a full time income with sharing your love of Young Living’s products with others, I’m your girl. I’m here to support you along the way. I’m here to encourage you to accomplish your goals. Fulfill your dreams. Your dreams aren’t accidental, y’all. They are burning a desire in your heart for a reason. Let me help you check some things off your bucket list!

Are YOU ready for a life of purpose, wellness and abundance!? JOIN ME!

You can find Essential Living with Dakota’s logo in my sidebar and on the Partners’ Page at the top of my website!  When you visit be sure to tell her Danny sent ya!

Here is an excerpt from the Everything In and Around Denmark’s page:

Sleeping, Lie Awake Dreaming

Waking up, then
sleeping a bit more
trying to make my dreams
come true,
A simple nap to gain energy
dozing off in the middle of a sentence
sleeping to forget her memory
but that too will fade, as my need
for sleep,…

After Eight Moments…

Cyranny's cove


Let the rain kiss you,

Let the rain beat upon your head

with silver liquid drops.

Let the rain sing you a lullaby…

The Finest Grain…

Cyranny’s Cove!

Cyranny's cove


“Just look at it”, he said
“The greatest moment
of the life of a tree.
All those years, capturing
sunlight, making it stronger
growing straight and true, sacrificing
itself in the end, for yet a more noble
existence.””Just feel the perfection” he said, running his
fingers along the surface of the flooring.
“Smooth, lacking knots, such beauty,
I’ve never before owned”.A voice wafted up towards him, a bit less
appreciative, than his noble thoughts.

“Are you going to do me again, or would
you rather make love to your precious flooring,
being Oak, no less, because this whole experience
is beginning to bore me a bit…….”

I could tell you all about our lovely neighbors we had to leave behind when we moved from Switzerland to Australia. The lovely couple next door, always happy to have a little chat or the family next door whose kids kept our little boy giggling. I could tell you about the other family in the neighborhood with the horses. People I’m still friends with.

I could also tell you about the weird neighbor we had over the first 6 months in Australia. The lady in her mid 40’s who came home with another guy every night, in the middle of the night to then play “Hotel California” full blast and waking not only us but for sure the entire building. I could tell you how I knocked on her door at 1.30am only to hear her say after she turned the music down “oh it’s the neighbors again, let’s just…

via Daily Prompt: Climbing


My Dear,

I went hiking the other day. Alone. I followed your footprints, engraved in the rock, followed the path, you had walked so long ago. Looking for traces of your past, left innocently along the road… Remains of the man you were becoming, souvenirs of the boy that is no more…

My legs hurt, as I ascended, slowly, but surely. Each step I took, made me ache and wonder. Wonder if it was crazy, wonder if I was. But I kept putting one foot in front of the other, clinging at the rock wall as the way got steeper. And my doubts faded little by little.

“Pity me, for I am a fool for you” you once said, but I was the fool climbing my way laboriously… Beating my body. Wanting to light the slightest spark of pride in your eyes, by all means possible…
