 Book available on Amazon

Hello Everybody,

Yes, I know this is a writer's blog, and I like to offer tips, or inspiration, or whatever pertains to writing. Well this time I have to show you my book. It's imperative that I do it.  It's essential. It's a hope for the future--that this book can, and will, make a difference.

Just click on the image and it will take you to the Amazon site. There you can read a portion, decide you want it, buy it, and receive copious thanks from me. I'd send flowers if I could.

There are zinnias on the cover, an old fashioned flower to my way of thinking, and they remind me of her.

Over and out until later. Thanks for stopping by,


P.S. The book is being offered for the incredibly low price of only $2.99. A steal.

Uplift, Inspire, Enthrall

I once heard a psychiatrist say that writing is self aggrandizement. With a broad brush he painted people such as Thoreau, Hemingway, Steinbeck, and Shakespeare, as bunch of ego maniacs. Maybe they were, but the world is made better because they had the guts to put their words onto paper.

Actors  uplift. Artists inspire. Musicians enthrall. Birds enchant. And the antics of babes, human or animal, never fail to bring a smile to our lips, and they are not doing it for an audience. They do it because they love doing it.

Because of their expression the world rings, vibrates, dances, shines, and is made glorious.

Okay writers, let’s jump into the fray.

And follow Ray Brabury's advice: If it isn't fun, don't do it. 

And speaking of glorious--spring has come to Oregon.
