New Followers

I would like to welcome envisionfuture who is now following this blog. I found no link to a website for them. I did find a twitter link:  @jklepack .

Next comes facetioussoup ….. yep this is an interesting one that I think is worth visiting at:

her profile says she is new at blogging…well, she might be but she is a great writer and expresses herself well. I like sites that are solid and … yes, maybe even blunt. She has a lot of emotion in her words and tells a story I think needs to be shared. So, go grasshoppers and see what she has to say about her life and, yes, about yours.

She writes: ” I am a widow of four boys. I am a veteran of the USAF. I am a medical laboratory technician. I have started my blog and I am having a lot of fun with it. I feel like my blog has given me purpose in life. I am a homeschooler as well we use Khan Academy. One thing is for sure I don’t take life for granted I have learned that it can be gone in the blink of an eye. My husband of 17 years died from Cardiomyopathy because he had a big heart. I am Croatian.”

And then there is Kristi S. Simpson  Kristi writes: ” I’ve been writing on and off for fifteen years, mostly off. I’m finally to a point where I can dedicate real time to it. I am currently working on a middle grade fantasy series. I’m new to blogging but learning quickly. I never know what I’m going to say next, so it’s probable that I’ll be just as surprised as everyone else at some of my posts.” You can find her at:

Another interesting site for those of you who are curious about saving money is who also is now following me. Looks like lots of good ideas there. So, again, go take a look see, maybe there is something there for thee and most importantly to look is free….sorry, got on a roll there.

I know I have been lax on writing about those who have joined me here. I have been busy with many things, including setting up the blog:  which is where I also have three of my books for sale….actually, that is what it is, it is a place you can buy my books at and you can write wonderous reviews of them as well.

Unfortunately, so far no one has bought a book there. Everyone runs over to Amazon or Barnes and Noble but no one buys on at my store so I don’t even know if the damn shopping cart works! Hours and hours and days and days I spent on this site and …. well, I’ll just be calm, as my therapist said to me the other day, after a particularly explosive moment of anger at the VA, go sit in the waiting room and calm down. Let’s see, xanax is always good. Coffee and bourbon are even better. Ah well, perhaps I’ll go and write some poetry as I am in that spell.

The Passion

Do not follow in my footsteps

For I shall not be there when you arrive

To rest yourself upon the bed pillows

Wrapped in bedding soft and dry

Nor will you hear the mating sighs

To guide you on your way

Of those who join together in the darkness

Or in the early morning hours

Beneath the stars dimming in the drifting sky

Before the rising sun can mark your passage

By the tracks left in shifting sands

I shall not be where you think I lie

For my soul is tortured and in depth

The trail will fade and leave you there

Alone, alone as I softly pass you by.

    Loved it 🙂 ❤


    1. Thanks. I’m glad you like them. As a writer I am dependent on readers. I write for my readers, without them I am nothing.
