Decisive December


I hope this finds everyone warm, happy, and reading!  We're still having fairly livable weather, with only a few days of snow so far. Although it proclaims so much beauty, I'm dreaming of beaches.

I had the privilege of reading my work at "Four Minutes of Fame" in Wenatchee WA. organized by the "Write on the River" organization. It was a beautiful, fun venue, with many talented people. There was such a wide variety of readings, from memoirs, fiction, screenplays, and poetry. Truly a lovely evening.

I had the wonderful opportunity to watch a dear friend's art come to life. We attended a production she had a lead part in called "The Pajama Game" Shaina Longstreet was smashing! I love to see people express themselves in the arts, doing something they love.

Time is running out so if you're still shopping for gifts, why not give the gift of reading. "Lest We Forget Life's Passion" would be perfect.  I just received another very sweet review from one of my UK readers that you can read here:

Beautiful poems, beautiful book.
By Anthony Novak on December 18, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I live in England and, sadly, this beautiful book of poems is not available here. After waiting for months in case it appeared in UK (I don't like Kindle versions) I ordered it from and it arrived today, just in time for Christmas. So all you UK poetry enthusiasts, go on, order it from US, it's worth the wait. The poems are brilliant and the book (I got the paperback version) is beautifully printed. Highly recommended, you will come back to it again and again.

Now, back to my corner for continued editing, editing, editing.

Warmest thoughts to you all, and I will leave you with a poem..

United - Triolet

Be the light that shines through others.
Love please give to all your brothers.
Positive vibes float all around.
Be the light that shines through others.
Soften your heart and understand.
Expand yourself and take a hand.
Be the light that shines through others.
Love please give to all your brothers.
