CHRISTMAS DOWN SOUTH. It's Chri stmastime in the south. I pulled my Christmas box of decorations out this morning, then sat on the...
I Can't Get Through To Mrs. Blackmore
I can't get through to Mrs.Blackmore. I have been corresponding with this lady
by the name of Mrs Blackmore for a few weeks now, well I say correspond,
actually she's the only person she's writing- I'm not convinced she cares if anyone writes back.
Well, first let me say, I realize the effects stress can have on a person. In addition, we're all in such a hurry we barely have time to think straight, and simply aren't paying enough attention to what we're doing at times- although, I believe Mrs. Blackmore needs to READ my e-mails, I mean, sometimes someone else might have something important to say.
For example, Mrs. Blackmore believes I am her son Clifford and it really doesn't
matter what I say or do she keeps writing me. Anyway, I think she's harmless,
and I thought I would share it with you because why should anyone have to endure
this alone, and you are my friends, right?
At the bottom of every e-mail she writes, "how do i get out of here???
esamplease putwheres the esape sign?? do i press back button??well i guess i'll
just write because it's required dont want to get on some lis.."
I would be happy to tell her how she could "get out of here" but first she has to read my e-mails, and I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon.
Anyway, now I have a feeling she knows I'm not Clifton but enjoys having someone to e-mail,at least I hope that's the case, because if not, Clifton really needs to talk
to his Mother. Here is the last e-mail I received...
Pay attention to how this e-mail is signed. Always and forever? And Mrs. Blackmore?
By the way I took the liberty of giving her an image...
Here is her e-mail:
Clifton! there is no need to be embarrassed. everyone here has a momma.
You need to listen to James and also call Mi Maw. her cat died today. You remember Nass. hewas 20. she needs to hear that her grandson loves her. itll help console her,
shug. please dont neglect your family.
James, great! You wouldnt know anyone who could bring my friend Cinda would you? her husband Denny is getting his knee surgery that day. its not required that we bring someone but everyone else is so we dont want to be left out. this class is a eye openin experience.we're just two old girls trying to see what we got left in us. turns out we gota lot.
Always and forever,
If you enjoyed this e-mail, I have more that I'll be happy to share with you, just say the word, although in the meantime, have a great day.
Oh and remember, because if you're anything like me you will forget- never leave home without your sense of humor!

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
