No pink moon

I did not see a “pink moon” last evening as predicted.  It was a beautiful moon, so full and brilliant.  I’m glad last least I looked.  So much goes by us when we forget to focus.  Look up and see all that surrounds.  Amazing///  Enjoy today……Ardsley

Did you ever think, I wish……  I have and do….a lot!   Then I give my wish some thought to see how much it is in reality.  Do I have the ability to make it come true today, tomorrow, or perhaps it is something that can happen with a plan.  Most always, I have a plan unless it’s something I can tackle right now.  I can’t rely on anyone else and in a way that’s a good thing to keep in mind.  It avoids blame and disappointment.   So don’e simply hope blowing out candles will help.  Begin right now!

Encounter the Poet Released

Encounter the PoetMy second book, Encounter the Poet, was released recently. Click the cover to read an excerpt or buy at Amazon.

Others of us have been thrust out in life swiftly, suddenly; feeling deserted in a dark room, alone. These feelings, growing up, of sadness or happiness can vacillate. There is time to search life and grasp an identity. Conflict, often masked with fear can be labeled by intimidation. No one wants to be lonely yet, discovery can show value, that sometimes, to be alone is good.”
