Jack Kerouac

"One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple."


Robin Williams 

"No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world."



I'm writing a first draft and reminding myself that I'm simply shoveling sand into a sandbox so that later, I can build castles. 


Friedrich Nietzsche

"We often refuse to accept an idea meerly becasue the tone of voice in which it has been expressed is unsympathetic to us." 


Marilynne Robinson 

“Nothing is more human than a book.”


"Only a liberal will give away everything they don't own."



Being Wrong

When you've done something wrong, admit it. No one has ever choked to death swallowing their pride. 


A Woman's 4 Favorite Animals 

A Jaguar in her garage.

A Mink on her back.

A Tiger in her bed

And a Jackass to pay for it all



Happy 34th anniversary to my husband


Derron E. Short

Sometimes you have to let people be who they are and make adjustments to how you deal with them.


Thornton Wilder

If you write to impress it will always be bad, but if you write to express it will be good.



"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."


When Life Gives You Lemons...

"Life has never given me lemons. It has given me anger issues, anxiety, a serious love for alcohol and a deep dislike for stupid people."


James Leo Herlihy

Be yourself. No one can ever tell you you're doing it wrong. 


Harold Pinter

All you can do is try to write as well as you can.


Winston Churchill

Success is not final. Failure is not final. It is the courage to continue that counts. 



Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason



You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more creative you become.



Happy birthday to my husband


Psalm 34:8

"O taste and see that the Lord is good. How happy is the man who trust in Him!"
