EMOTIONS

I have lost two dogs this winter and another fights cancer. My emotions are raw, well above the surface. This is me. I describe myself as one word: Emotions. Without these emotions I would not feel, not care and become indifferent to life and all it contains. THIS is not the way to live. Yes, I hurt. I hurt so much my guts twist into a knot. BUT at least I feel. I see others hurt and cry with them. I see...

FROM NONI MANYHAWKS

Ruby, I finally had the time to finish “Circles”, and enjoyed it more than I can put into words. I have no idea what is taught in American history class these days, but I do remember my own history classes, and reading and talking about the “discovery” of the “new world”, the conquistadors, etc. Very dry.

Never Ever Boast

Many people wish to be noticed. I do not exclude myself… until now. Fueled by an argument I did not intend to happen, I had to find the silence within myself and allow my anger to dissipate. It started out as a simple text to a relative. We, my husband and I, could not attend any holiday functions this year due to our oldest dog who is diabetic, and too fragile to take places.

Why Do People Leave Reviews And Not Explain Themselves?

There are always going to be people you cannot please. When my first reviews of Circles came in on Amazon, I felt good. People liked my writing. All it took was one poor review to deflate me. I worried in spite of all the good reviews that I blew it. I did not write for a couple weeks. This happened three times. “You can’t please everyone.” Finally, this started to soak in. My last bad...
