EVEN IN WINTER

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE,

This week has been exciting for me.  Our band , Soulful Noize, has, been booked for our first concert, April 4, 2014, downtown Red Deer Alberta, from 7 PM till 9 PM. Admission is 15 dollars per person. There will be tickets at the door also (hopefully). We also will be  selling t-shirts and hoodies by order.  And where is this event?   Why The Hub of course.  And least not, February is the long list for the CBC contest. Fingers crossed but if not this time, next time.

All right, time to slow down, if only for a moment, close your eyes, close your thoughts and…rest. Until next we gaze into each other’s eyes, I leave you with a few lines from the one that started it all.

A GROUP OF ONE

1830-36592

James looked at me with his intense brown eyes, always taking in the beauty of life. One day, he and I will be one–we are trying. He left me with these thoughts. First “find three crazy women who believe in you, and get this–will never let you win.  Second “look in the mirror every day, smile and say, “we’ll be all right.” Third and final “never ever give up. I promise you the tears you shed today, I swear, will only help to glitter your pathway home.”

The Ring O f Time

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE,

This week has been electric for me.  Our band  SOULFUL NOIZE– as I see it, listen my friends, I do know what I’m talking about–this music we produce is simply… spectacular.  If you don’t mind, just this once, I want to push one very strong thought of mine on all of you:  Music.. which makes you delve for your own dreams.

I just sent another story to CBC. This is a big deal for me. Now this one is a non-fiction piece, so that makes two gone for reading.  Yahoo!  Anyway I’m sore today so it is time my friends … if only for a moment, close your ( in fact I will too), close “our” eyes and our thoughts….. and rest.   Until we smile at each other again I leave you with a little tale I am working on called…

SERENITY

  I felt , or rather heard, the wind’s breath as it tucked the last spark from my candle. The haunting echo from my fingers dancing across the piano, stirred old memories. Looking up, I see the french doors open wide from the wind,  and the winding garden, lined with rows of flowers, colors flying from the petals, yet I feel a darkness coming. Almost a screaming, deep inside my soul.

A DIFFERENT DOSE OF DREARY

HI EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE,

It has been a week of up and down. I started the week by finishing the story I needed for the school kids about joining in with differently-abled people and like that. My music rehearsals have been awesome. And then came Wednesday. I did not win the contest I entered (not CBC, another one).  Now I know I am a writer;  I’ve been rejected. On to bigger and better.

I hope you are all well. Now close your eyes and thoughts if only for a moment…. and rest.    Until next we talk, I leave you some thoughts.

I was walking today, and the sun pushed out of the clouds long enough to curl it’s long fingers around me. In that moment it was for an instant like winter had washed away. Now we all know that isn’t happening yet, and for those who love it hopefully not too soon.  Me, I long for spring…and you.

THE SUM OF THE DAY

HI EVERYONE EVERYWHERE,

My week in this new year finds me busy. My editor Michelle got snowshoes for Christmas. She is a runner, so I think she will be fine; she always is.

Back in rehearsals with the band, sooo right. And now I am working on a story for my advocacy group Freebirds to read to school kids. To tell you the truth, I don’t know that much about kids, but if they enjoy every day as much as I do, maybe… I know more than I think I do about this subject.

Anyhoo, it’s time to close our eyes and thoughts if only for a moment and….rest. Here are a couple of lines of hope, until next we chat…something new…

THE HEDGE

old lady

It was dark and cold for October but little Davey Kufnik felt not only cold, but now… afraid. As he looked across the yard Davey thought “crazy I might be, but I swear, that hedge across the yard is watching me”. He could not understand for the life of him, and he was nine you know, why that hedge was wearing slippers.
