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.

First off ... GREAT news about the hole in Doogie's eardrum, it's HEALED! His hearing is perfect, not diminished by the burst ear drum, ear infection.
Secondly, my twisted spine ... better BUT there's a nerve that's twisted, didn't straighten on it's own, and the doctor is recommending therapy. Al isn't too keen on therapy so we'll have to see what happens there. More medication for the pain was prescribed.
Artwork to replace the photos in "Love is a Rose" is coming along great! Al hopes to have a site ready for those who are interested in my ebooks by the end of January.
For the tenth book (that Al would like finished by Jan. 31st) I've decided to do one on "Jesus"--and have been doing lots of religious artwork research, drawing inspiration where and when I can.
Remember (as always) that if you have cancelled postage stamps, I collect them if you'd like to send them :)! Also, religious artwork of Mary and/or Jesus (including Christmas cards) is also welcome. It seems no two people look upon them the same; my own art of them is quite varied.
Al's parents are okay, still wishing to remain in their home in Southern California.
Do keep in touch and still, remember us in prayer. The 9mm growth near Doogie's brainstem is in a place considered 'inoperable' so we're hoping it's a benign cyst (harmless). His next MRI isn't scheduled yet so we have no idea when it will be.
"Psychic Witness" will be airing the show about my son, Doug, soon. I will send a newsletter as soon as I know a date for it.
I thank God for your friendship. It's cherished.
