Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

In honor of Teacher appreciation week, I would like to write about a teacher who was intuitive enough to realize that a fourteen year class clown had more to offer than a talent for disturbing the classroom.

Mrs. Wilkins taught English and Social Studies and I was in both of her classes. By the time I entered Junior High I had read most of the books on my mother’s bookcase, which in most cases didn’t match the School Board’s Curriculum. 

As a result, I was constantly raising my hand in regards to the American Indians, etc.  It wasn’t that I was smarter than anyone else, it was just the seventies when most people had one television set, so I spent most of my time listening to music, reading, and writing.


Tuesday's Question!

Hello and welcome to Tuesday's Question! I began posting a question every Tuesday when I started A Nice Place In The Sun, which believe it or not was in 2007.

I thought it would be a great way to get to know my readers and it worked, but now there is a whole new blogging community that I would like to get to know.

Okay, this weeks question is:

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 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

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

Catch your dreams


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
