A Loss for Words

Hello Everyone.  I apologize for being away.  The love of my life was in town and we filled our days and nights with things to do.  But alas, all good things come to an end.  He left today, and it will be months before I see him again.  I’ve decided to give self-pity my full attention, so I’ll be back once the tears dry.  Take care.

Dare to Dream

Sit and listen of what I dared to dream
about a young woman caught in a scheme
of agents, publishing and fame.  She made
the story thrive in life through serenade,
submitting to travels across the land,
declined, she revised with a steady hand.
There is no rejection too much to bear
determined to publish so she could share
a story of murder and disarray,
hidden knife for her lover does betray.
She found he lied about where he had been,
but never realizing he had a twin.
It came out one night underneath the sheets
his performance was better than her Sweets.
She drilled him until he confessed the sin,
“My brother’s idea,” said with a grin.
Out came the knife, she plunged deep in his thigh
neighbors called the police after his cry.
So that’s the story for now to be said
‘Til first publication when you’ll have read.
This woman who dared to dream, had spoken,
“Follow your dreams, they won’t leave you broken.”

I hope you have a great day and week.

Out of the Mouths of Babes

This is a fictional scene, but David’s response is true.

Scene: Family standing in pew in a Catholic church about to shake hands with those around them.

Mom shakes an old man’s hand in front of her saying, “Peace be with you.”

Dad turns and shakes the hands of the young couple behind them saying, “Peace be with you.”

David turns to the woman next to him and says, “May the force be with you.”

My nephew really likes Star Wars.
