Living without you…

Cyranny’s Cove!

Cyranny's cove


Living without you
by my side, just down the street
in the next town, a stone’s throw

Living without you
dinner in town, at the movies
with the friends, a quiet night
at home,

Living without you
buying presents, just because
worrying that I didn’t love you
enough, never enough

Living without you
writing love letters, delivering them
by hand, watching your face
light up,

Living without you
denies me of these
and other things,
denies me of your presence,
your touch, your words,
your words

Living without you
makes me write
these words,
not hand
not seeing your
not feeling
your touch,
nor hearing your laugh,
not spending
my life


I am,

Living without you…..

What is it about Big Bend?

Ann Cavitt Fisher!

(comment disabled here, please visit original page)

Ann Cavitt Fisher

“According to Apache legend, after creating the universe, the Great Spirit tossed a large pile of leftover boulders and debris on the Big Bend.”

“Oh, so you’ve been to Big Bend . . .”

Yes. I’ve been so many times that I have lost count. I was married in Marathon, Texas, about 70 miles north of the ranger station. When I die, it is where I want my ashes spread.

What is it about the Big Bend?

The park’s name comes from the 100 mile long big bend in the Rio Grande river that forms the Texas-Chihuahua-Coahuila border. At over 1,250 square miles, Big Bend is approximately the size of Rhode Island. It’s so remote that it remains the least visited of the National Parks in…

Only in a Leap

Time to follow Ann Cavitt Fisher!!

Only in a Leap of Faith by Ann Fisher

“Only in the leap from the lion’s head will he prove his worth.”

Indiana Jones and The Last CrusadeOne test Indy must pass to achieve the Grail.

There were three friends at unhappy points in their marriages. We talked numerous times about what we should do. In 2003, I am the one who left her marriage. It took me two years of thinking. I was afraid. Finally, I knew.

I took the leap from the lion’s head.

It wasn’t easy — it was frightening. Like many women, I had no credit history. Starting a life again outside of that safe, known world was not easy. Would I survive it? I wasn’t sure. There were difficult years. My daughter watched me struggle to make ends meet, and I did some tough things. In the end though, it is one of the best choices I have ever made.

My two friends stayed in their marriages. In one case, it…

Nervous is the feeling

A woman feels when

She’s forced by society

To be perfect

To stay young forever

Or she will be replaced

Nervousbecause her

features are changing and

she may need to go under the

Knifeto be socially


Nervous because

She doesn’t have the

Perfect relationship

And the perfect family

Women no need to be

Nervous, perfection

Doesn’t exist andthe way

Welook after 25 years

Of age is still beautiful

Weare life in expression

and the gateway

Of love and birth

We can change nations

Through breast milk

and stop wars through

our touch and hugs

The pain left behind without

our love proveswe are love

In action, our sons suffer

Whenwe are not around

So our presence heals the

Family, womenwe are the

Foundation make no mistake

And think otherwise

I have come to the following conclusion.

Not all books that hit the charts are good.

A lot of excellent books never sell.

You can become a NYT bestseller by targeting carefully and working the system.

What is the difference?

Marketing – which equals getting your book/s out there and VISIBLE, really  VISIBLE.

Now before you read any further don’t think for a moment that I am whining. I applaud and admire those people who have the marketing skill. I may or may not write good books, depending on your point of view (you can see them below!) but I ain’t got the marketing skill, nor do I have the money to pay some person or organisation to do it for me. I cannot even railroad DH into doing any of it either. (you may say aaaah here)

I receive dozens of blogs each week telling me how only Facebook…

Back to the Gulf Coast!

Welcome to Lucky Otter’s Haven!

Lucky Otters Haven


Sunset off Clearwater Beach.

In just a month (April 7th), I’ll be driving back to the Tampa Bay area again to visit my son. I’ll be there for 5 days, until the 12th.   This time, my daughter is coming along with me, since she hasn’t seen where he lives before.

When I went in August last year, it was the first time I’d ever been in Florida, and since my son was working most of the week I was there, I had time to spend alone exploring the area.  One of my favorite discoveries was the bath-warm waters of the Gulf near his home, with its ever-shifting tides that expose the silt-like sand at low tide.   There aren’t a lot of tourists there in August (too hot), so that trip actually turned out to  be not only a peaceful, but also a spiritual experience — not to mention…

Today’s winner…Glimmer Of Happiness!!

glimmer of happiness 🙂

February 24th. We started our day with a breakfast at Mang Inasal. I ordered grilled chicken. Andy ordered grilled chicken too but with a side of palabok and lumpia. I don’t usually eat palabok, I don’t know why, but I gave it a try again and it was good! I’ll order the next time. I always have a full tummy every time I leave Mang Inasal.

Visiting the Tenement Museum

I love this post I found on Ann Cavitt Fisher!!

Ann Cavitt Fisher

Mulberry Street on New York's Lower East Side, ca. 1900 Mulberry Street on New York’s Lower East Side, ca. 1900.

One of the most fascinating museums in the United States stands at the corner of Delancey and Orchard Street on the Lower East Side of New York City.

Stepping into the Tenement Museum is time travel into the lives of hardworking American immigrant families.

You pick your year. Would you like to see 1873? What about the depression of the 1930’s? Or a visit with an Irish family in the 1860’s, when a common line in employment ads was: Irish Need Not Apply. When you step into 97 Orchard street, you step back into a vital part of American history.

Joseph was off to work.

The coal stove was smoking a bit, but at least the kitchen was warm. Bridget put her hand on the baby’s forehead for a moment, then picked up the pail. Agnes had been sick for days, and…
