My passions are writing and creating poetry. I write for several sites online and have four themed blogs.
For many years my trusty digital camera a Pentax Optio W 60 waterproof has never failed me. In the early morning stepping out on my second-floor floor front porch I looked down into the yard and saw what looked like a cat met with an accident. Fluffkins was sunbathing and the sight of him in the morning sunlight made me smile and this was the result.
Colors Of My World
The colors of my world, sometimes seem to fade, from brightness to darkness and never stay the same. Then with poetic words,
On Mother's Day
Every Mother’s Day since my mom passed away in 1996 has been pretty painful with memories. I really miss her. Today Mother’s Day is celebrated all over the world. This holiday was created in 1908 by a woman named Anna Jarvis and it became an official holiday in the U.S. in 1914. When this holiday became much too commercialized Jarvis tried to have it denounced.
Always Loving Each Other
Their romance began like so many do. Some said it was true love others said infatuation. She was a simple girl who just wanted to be loved. He was a plain old guy, who wanted to make a home. They came together and the chemistry was just right. She loved to surprise him, to make him laugh, to him she was only true.
Put the Soup Kettle On
The best thing about soup is that you can make a lot of it. It can feed a large family and can even be frozen for many leftovers. The best thing I can say about soup is - make a lot of it, make it flavorable, make it thick, and enjoy it.
What Big Eyes You Have
Aye-ayes are part of the primate order and considered to be long-fingered lemurs. They look something like a cross between a racoon and a rat. They are fairly small around 12 to 16 inches and weigh in at 5 - 6 pounds. They have long bushy tails that are larger than their bodies. They look like they are wearing large, round glasses with their big yellow-orange or sandy brown eyes and seem to have a look of surprise on their faces. Surprisingly despite their small size aye-ayes are the world's largest nocturnal primates. It has also been discovered that they have a sixth finger on each hand giving them an extra thumb.
Dancing Across the Stars
A poem I wrote about a very dear friend who passed away some years ago. We knew each other since high school days. I was in contact with him even when I moved to Latvia and my late husband and I met with him when we visited NYC at the end of the 1990s. I miss him especially on very sunny and warm days when we would walk the streets of Manhattan NYC together. I suppose the two of them have met up with each other up there and are beaming at me from above. The photo is of me and my friend Frank.
