No Problem.

                                                       



Hello, I haven't posted in so long I'm not sure if anyone is reading this, but just in case I thought I would update my posts. Where have I been? Well, if I told you the whole story, it would bore you to death, so I'll just say while I was offline I managed too lock out the noise in my life long enough to finish another manuscript. Now, all I have to do is send it off to agents and publishers. Golly, traditional publishing is rough work, but it will be worth it. I cannot wait to post one of my books on A Nice Place In The Sun. But, until then, here is my new post.

Lately, I've felt like a plane gliding in for a landing, sort of tipsy topsy. This feeling reminded me of a time long ago...

I've titled it, No Problem, but I guess you already know that- 

Years ago, my brother booked a flight for me on a plane that resembled a crop duster. I was horrified when I saw it at the airport. I hate to fly, particularly on a plane that has ten seats. 

I was flying to Fort Walton Beach, Florida, which happens to have a naval base, so I knew we would have to land under zooming jets, which are loud enough to burst your ear drums.

I was so terrified, I went into the airport bar, and I did not drink much, but this was one of those times when I needed a friend, and alcohol was more than happy to lend a hand.

Motherhood- Courage


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-

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.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

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


Written for Ann

Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'


F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
