Poetry Thursday: Something to Talk About

Last week (when I didn’t participate) the theme for Poetry Thursday was “conversations.” I think that’s a cool idea and at some point may write something original for it, but the stuff percolating through my brain hasn’t gelled into a usable idea just yet.
However, there’s a poem I like a lot that I think fits […]

SPC: Street Photogrpahy, Week 5

It’s the final week of the Street Photography theme for the Self-Portrait Challenge and I feel like I’m going out with a whimper instead of a bang, but oh well. We do what we can and, while I did the best I could with this particular theme, it was definitely a difficult one for me.

Here’s a link to some info that includes a photo. (Thanks to JC […]


Thank you so much to everyone who said prayers and sent good wishes toward my family yesterday.
Dad called yesterday afternoon and Merle’s surgery went well. They were able to do the lumpectomy as hoped/planned rather than anything more radical and she was able to come home late the same day. Now, aside from the surgery […]

Family Stuff

I’m going to skip Poetry Thursday this week, even though I really like the prompt and would like to tackle it another week.
Instead I’d like to ask those of you who are so inclined to send some good thoughts toward my family. I mentioned nearly a month ago that Merle (my stepmother) was having some […]
