A to Z: “Dear Mama”

Welcome to my 2017 A to Z Challenge – poetry inspired by music. In most cases, my selected song triggers a memory or deeper meaning that I will expose in original poetry.

Either way, join me on my musical/poetic journey through A to Z — you may find a “new to you” song that you enjoy!

I often relive the fear and concern I had as a child, watching my mom and family experience cancer and all the things that go with it: hair loss, doctors appointments, missing activities because she isn’t feeling well, and the overall fatigue that takes over her body.

Ten Things of Thankful – Anniversary Edition

The Ten Things of Thankful blog hop celebrates its 50th week AND its first birthday. (They did a couple of renegade weeks over the holidays to make it up to 52.) While I haven’t done 50 weeks myself, this week marks my 21st week of Thankfulness. 21 is a big important number for many, symbolizing a time for cheers and beers, so I guess it all works out for these festivities, AmIRight?

A to Z 2014: Grandparents

As someone who hasn’t had the privilege of having many, many memories with most of my grandparents, I often find myself telling others to make the most of the times they have, when they have them. But this post will be dedicated to my grandparents and the memories we have shared. I will also share a painting series I created to represent the memories I share with my grandparents.

Ten Things of Thankful – Week Fifteen

Almost forgot to get this in this weekend. Seems that Jak is the one to keep reminding me lately. I really should get to blogging more than just the blog hop, or perhaps just write more than just in this
