You guys! I’m excited for my latest book. It’s been a long time in coming and I think it’s one that many people will be able to find useful. It’s all about having more friends, and who doesn’t need that in this world?
Many years ago, I was going through old poems that I’d finally kept. Up until the time I was about thirty, I destroyed everything I wrote.
It’s a beautiful sunny Saturday and I’m still in the gratitude afterglow and can’t think of a better way to spend the day than with some poetry.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. We had a good day, a nice time with our small little family that reinforced for me that you don’t need a lot of people in your life, you just need the ones who love you. I’m so grateful for my husband and mom and aunties and […]
