I'm very busy raising an eight year old grandson who has cerebral palsy and is blind in one eye.
I'm editing several novels and have completed two illustrated poetry books. Currently I'm looking for interested publishers.
Would love to keep in touch with everyone who enjoys my poetry but there is never enough time. If you'd like updates on what's going on, you'll find it here.

Doogie missed school Thursday and Friday with a runny nose, fever and cough. He's doing much better today.
Al fixed a nice breakfast this morning for Mother's Day but Doogie was so upset that he'd not brought his Mother's day gift home yet :)! That was so sweet--I told him it was nice to get gifts ANY day so hope he feels better now.
It's taking a while for the numbness of my lips and jaw to subside; then I feel a bit of pain still. It's important to take care of oneself ... especially when we have folks who need dearly need us. I'd like to see Doogie grow up and have his own family someday. So~we're teaching by example :)!
Keep in touch and take care.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
Mother’s give birth,
must be female,
take care of us.
A mother cares
and may be male …
who cares anyway?
uncle or aunt,
grandma or pa,
a town, village.
True … mothers stay?
Not so … some die,
give kids away,
may ‘run’ some day,
go to prison,
harm their loved ones.
Mothers raise children
with love unconditional,
come in all shapes, creeds, colors.
Any one can be ‘Mother’
show compassion … like no other.
So on this day … lets give thanks
but don’t break the banks!
Mothers thrive well on pure love!
