Forever Young

You wear your youth proudly

A golden crown nestled upon your brow

Sparkling sapphires, glittering emeralds, stunning rubies

Representing energy, determination, & hope

Dreaming of tomorrow without truly realizing what's ahead

 

Unless you plan on dying…

Project 30 - May 7

I'm taking part in a fundraising bike tour for the MS Society of Canada in July. My team (Neon Riders) have been holding a few fundraisers leading up to the tour. In preparation for a yard sale, I decided to make a poster to be put up around…

My mother...

Everytime I think of writing about my mother on here, I change my mind.  I have so many mixed feelings, esp. right now when things are so difficult for me, my sister and my father.   I have been playing the role of my mother, which she abandoned, in part, years before she passed away.   I think she'd be here for me now and there is a part of me that helps me from beyond in getting through another day, another week, another year.  She lost her mother young, at age 13, and it affected her for…

My Mother the Enigma ( did you think I would say car?)

My mother is one of my best friends. We definitely did not start out that way. We probably butted heads from the time I slipped into this world. From what I was told, I even gave her hard time then. I am sure having the doctor have to slip his hand up her and work her like a puppet to  turn me did not make me very endearing to her . If any one thinks this will be dripping with sugary sentiment you will be dead wrong.

What I can say is that although very flawed ( and who isn't?) she is…

My Mom's Story (Creative Writing Challenge)

Mom, that is a simple term and yet, not so simple. What is a mom? Some think that you're a mom just by giving birth to a child, but I feel it's more complex than that. But, we're not here to talk about that. We're here to talk about my mom, so let's do that, shall we?

 

Let's start with a little history. My mom, Danette Marie was born on May 23rd, 1958 in Milwaukee, WI. She is the middle child, sort of. My grandma had a child when she was 16 and gave her up for adoption. We…

The Beauty of Woman; A Skewed Perspective

    Who is it that started this?  When did we, as a society, decide to embrace this unyielding, brutally bizarre

 concept of the female form?  Why would we offer up our daughters,

 wives, sisters and mothers to such base contempt at the hands of

 strangers ?  Who are they (whomever THEY may…
