For it is good to be children sometimes, and never better than at Christmas, when its mighty Founder was a child Himself.” ~Charles Dickens

Daughter Fall (A Poem about Letting Go)

WP_20151110_09_44_43_Pro

Poetry can be a snapshot of the day, a moment, a memory, a season. It so often captures what I find hard to articulate in essay form, and like paintings leaves room for varied conclusion. I have written this poetic response for my blogging sister and friend Karen, for her Tuesday at Ten prompt. It was perfect because I had already captured the morning in images by the ocean, but this prompt allowed me to approach with words the unspoken emotions pumping through my mom heart today.

I invite you to have a look at the amazing pictures (amazing because RI is a beautifully photographic state, not because I am a great photographer! ) I grabbed and linked for you to enjoy: Narragansett, RI/Fall.

I hope you enjoy the poem and the pictures…

The Screwtape Letters -Providence Debut!

stape-led5

 

 

It is a fact one of my all time favorite books, The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis, has been made into a theatrical production. It is also a fact that I was thrilled to hear it would finally be coming to the stage, here in Rhode Island. The best news of all is, I will be in attendance and am thrilled to the gills (didn’t know about my gills, eh?), that I will be able to tell you every detail of my experience in an upcoming post!

So pardon my excitement, and a shout out thanks to Micheal Gravison and The Vets for making it possible.

Now, you fans of C.S. Lewis, Screwtape, Narnia, and Aslan, and all of my fellow Tolkien, LOTR fans and friends- take heed and check out the details from the Press Release below (Press Release below) and stay tuned for my follow up- or even better-hope to see you there! (Insert Dance of Joy here!)

Tuggie The Patriot Pup Book Series Review and Giveaway

WP_20150908_16_55_23_Pro

 

 

Back in April, I attended a wonderful event hosted by the Association of Rhode Island Authors, at the Warwick Public Library here in Rhode Island. I, along with my friend (the fearless leader of my Writer’s Group) Linda, headed out to the Author’s Expo which featured over 35 local Ocean State authors. I conversed with many of the authors there, asked questions, gathered information and just enjoyed the day. To say I am completely in my element chatting with people of every persuasion is like saying dolphins are at home in the ocean. But in a room full of published authors? Oh, call me Flipper and film me! I thoroughly enjoyed my time at this event, and had hoped to write something about it sooner. But, here it is September, and I am just getting to sharing the goodness; such is my life lately.
