  • Poetry – Country Music

    Country music soothing, sympathetic – acoustic guitar with a twang. Striking the heart – squeezing it like a juicer until the tears cleanse the wound.

  • Poetry – Tip Her

    (The following slightly risque poem was inspired by a passage from Ulysses by James Joyce, which turned out to be a lot dirtier (and nonsensical) than I thought it would be lol.) Stop. Knocking. Silly man! Want women by the score? Quit throwing flowers at their feet and singing sappy songs outside in your feathered […]

  • Poetry – While We Lay Together

    The rhythm of the dryer is soothing. As the clothing tumbles, I hear a high-pitched ping – like coins shaken in a pocket, and the heavy thump of footless shoes.

  • Poetry – Make It Up As We Go

    You read faster than I can turn the page, so I’ve learned how to make up the story as we go.

  • Poetry – This Mental Love

    I pour myself out, a puddle of libation on the floor… If any of my fancies ever pleased you, I beg of you to accept the mental influences at work. My affection may be disputable, but it was never plagiarized. Of my loyalty, none could fairly doubt, as my poverty is a witness to my […]

I did find a few fun things to concentrate on though. I annoyed my husband by sitting in the captain’s chair like this: My personal favorite […]

  • Valentine’s Day 2019 Gifts – Lots of Unicorns!

    I had a good Valentine’s Day yesterday! My husband and I went to Fazoli’s for a casual dinner because we just don’t find it worth it to go to nice restaurants on Valentine’s Day when it is so ridiculously busy and packed. We will go to a nice dinner in a few days when it […]

  • Valentine Sticker ACEO Trading Card Collages

    Happy Valentine’s Day! I bought some Valentine stickers at Dollar Tree recently and decided to make some ACEO collages with them. Here are the finished results: My favorites are the food themed ones. I thought those were really unusual for Valentine’s themed stickers. I always like to find the weird, different stuff! You can find […]

  • Twittering Tales Fun

    I came across these “Twittering Tales” writing prompts yesterday and thought it looked like a lot of fun. The challenge is to take a photo prompt and write a short story, poem, or whatever comes to mind, but you have to keep it under 280 characters, just like a tweet on Twitter. I decided to […]
