Poetry and Prose by #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, Co-Author of #1 Amazon Bestseller, Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women, and Jan/Feb 2022 Spillwords Press Author of the Month
This week I learned that my cousin passed away in a car accident. I was, and am, saddened by the news; and, my heart goes out to all of my family in Los Angeles, and everywhere else that my family is today. Sending love and blessings to all of you.
At work this week, I prepared to take the team through a team building in two weeks, which is about creating next year. I am excited, as the entire team has not gathered in a while. Should be fun.
Writing and Reflecting
Writing did occur, as it always does, and was, well, quite prolific this week. Meaning, poems continue to come, and I am deeply grateful for the experience.
It’s interesting, sometimes there’s nothing there, and at others, it’s like a flood of emotions and writing all at once. Pretty amazing, indeed.
I am super excited about these two poems being published, and am grateful to Gabriela and the team at MASTICADORESUSA for accepting these poems.
I also submitted two poems to Spillwords. I’ve not heard anything back from Spillwords yet, and will keep you posted on these two submissions, as well as the two submitted to MASTICADORESUSA. Grateful, grateful.
I also found out this week that my WP reader is not linked to all of the sites I’m following, which makes interacting with everyone a little more challenging. Therefore, I am planning to unfollow and refollow a whole bunch of sites in the next two weeks.
I think this will work, as it has in the past. So, if you see me unfollow and then refollow, that’s what’s happening. Thanks for being patient with me!
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve created a Community Gardening post, and I chose this week to update all of you via my diary entry, as writing another Community Gardening post eludes me at the moment.
Yes! Everything is growing quite well; and, yep, I’ve got some weeding to do too!
The peas and broccoli are delicious, and I am really excited about the tomatoes, squash, and, well, everything else that’s planted.
Appreciating 950 Followers
I am ecstatic to share that the site has surpassed 950 followers. My goal at the beginning of the year was to get to 1000 followers by the end of June. Though I’ll fall a little short of that goal, I am overjoyed about, and appreciative of, each of the 950 people that are following this site. That’s you! Thank you!
The past year has been lots of things. Hard, sad, and, it has also been wonderful, and beautiful. And, at this moment?
I am grateful.
Grateful to each of you for viewing, liking, commenting, and sharing my posts. Beyond grateful.
I appreciate each of you, and am thankful to have met each and everyone of you.
You are all inspiring and beautiful.
Sending love and blessings for a splendid week.
