Watkins Glen (Short Story) - 9/4/2011 4:21:09 PM|
Anita, I was in Watkins Glen in the early Fall of 2010. It was the same quaint beautiful place I remembered from the mid sixties when I was last there. The view of the lake from town is still spectacular. I am awaiting your next installment of teenage memoirs. Alone, a teenage girl with two strange men in a tent? You would not dare to attempt that trick today unless you wanted to be a crime statistic!I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael

Great story, Anita; well done!
(((HUGS)) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. ;D
Watkins Glen (Short Story) - 7/9/2011 4:30:32 PM
It's a great change of pace to get this glimpse into your past. Much enjoyed.
Watkins Glen (Short Story) - 7/3/2011 12:32:36 PM
reminders of our past- fun and victorious, frail and venomous-all the same. good story. let me know when you post the rest.
Watkins Glen (Short Story) - 7/2/2011 7:36:50 AM
Quite a story. I'm looking forward to what happens next. I thought you were going to write about car racing, because about that time my brother and I were into that and went to Road America (another teenage camping event) on the same circuit as Watkins Glen.
I am reminded of two concerts I attended… One in People's Park, San Jose,' 67 where my nurse friend from Canada got bored and wanted us to leave before everybody got sick from the little pink pills that Janis Joplin was hawking. Another, in Pleasanton California at the fairgrounds, where mounted police could not keep the crowds outside from storming the wall and getting in free. José Feliciano and the Chambers Brothers were two bands I can remember. A straight engineer in a sea of hippies–what a trip!

God I love this talent!! Wish I had read you before now. Sounds like you knew Mr. Snow very well. This is a pathetic world for some poor souls, isn't it? Or for all? Depending on who is doing the critique? Love your work! Will read more if my short term memory loss problem will allow me. A friend in spirit- Jerry Andrews

Dysfunctional Relationships - Hammer, Hurt, Blade,Snow and Green (Short Story) - 2/9/2007 8:53:09 AM
Soooooo true and rhyming to boot. Mrs. Hammer esp. was an insight for me and a reminder of a past relationship. (It's not as bad, he doesn't hurt me, only makes me sad)
Dysfunctional Relationships - Hammer, Hurt, Blade,Snow and Green (Short Story) - 11/18/2006 1:35:41 PM
Brilliant. You capture alot of sad ironies and truths that exist within dysfunctional relationships. Powerful, with a good sense of rhythm throughout that keeps the stories flowing. Well written!
Dysfunctional Relationships - Hammer, Hurt, Blade,Snow and Green (Short Story) - 9/7/2006 12:30:57 AM
I tensed up reading these. Mr Hurt and his Visa card reminded me of dad. He tried to heal the wounds with chocolate bars. I like your fast paced prose style: galloping poetry at its most captivating.
Dysfunctional Relationships - Hammer, Hurt, Blade,Snow and Green (Short Story) - 8/30/2006 3:38:07 PM
You sure caught the nature of dysfunctional relationships accurately with your words. I enjoyed the "black humor" or sarcasm that you used effectively to make certain points like, the Visa card soothing wounds for someone willing to exhange their body as a punching bag for money. Nice work.
Dysfunctional Relationships - Hammer, Hurt, Blade,Snow and Green (Short Story) - 8/29/2006 8:01:05 AM

A delightful story from a brilliant imagination and told in a spellbinding manner. I can see why your daughter wanted you to write it down.

The Land At the Edge of Light (Short Story) - 10/26/2004 7:11:43 PM
This is a great story, Lady_A. What a wonderful gift to save for your daughter. I think it would be fabulous, once you have completed this and done whatever tweaking you feel is needed, to find a place to have it put into a bound book that she can keep to read to her children and be passed on for generations. Your story is enchanting. I am eager to read more.

You have returned. Phase 2? It's amazing how much the moon means to life on earth. The moon's faint light at night and its gravitational pull causing the tides means that we are here and intelligent. That is the legacy of phase 2 of the moon.

This keynote signature verse of yours quickens my appetite for more of your so preciously alive, vital and spiritually attuned work, Anita. Each of your creations is complete in itself and a microcosm of body-soul, seen-unseen balance and experience. You lend beauty to everything you observe, touch and feel. Good to have you back! :)) xx

Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 7/12/2012 1:29:52 PM
...always showing something new.
Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 7/12/2012 11:44:42 AM
Ah, the eternal exchange between kindred souls and spirits, Anita, and how they can never be parted. Don't you just feel that combined energy totally intoxicating at the shoreline, where the duallisms abound and shapeshift incessantly? So much of our human psyche and psychology is bound up with such it seems to me. So lovely to read you again. xx
Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 7/6/2012 12:33:43 AM
Subtle and penetrating, Pax,
it finds its way inside the reader
and remains there a definite force;
i like this big time!
Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 6/29/2012 4:58:14 PM
Really beautiful...it kind of gives me a dreamy feeling, like laying under a tree in a hammock when there is a gentle breeze whispering across my body.
Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 6/28/2012 9:48:52 AM
It is no coincidence that the shoreline is a rich area of diverse life. Your poem illustrates how duplicity plays a part in change. Brilliantly written and carried out.
Spoken with a sneer (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 2:56:02 PM
sad when those who love one another cannot see that the love is more important that all else
Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 1:29:46 PM
Interesting metaphor for the conundrum facing our lawmakers re: immigration, especially when the line separating ethnicities gets grayer and grayer.
Spoken with a sneer (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 4:21:56 AM
Absolutely, yes. Often enough we fail to understand that, and so the hand extended in fulfilling what is perceived to be merely an obligation becomes a slap in the face.
Duplicate Diversities (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 4:15:03 AM
Extremely inspiring and affirmative of the sea-and-cigar-created expanse of my mood.
Spoken with a sneer (Poetry) - 6/27/2012 3:30:17 AM
this is an excellent emotional piece. it needs to be read through at least twice to absorb the pain-filled words of a heart with an obvious but sad decision to make. it starts in past tense and moves into the present letting the reader know that binding invisible strings have not been cut. whether this was intentional or not i'm not sure, but to me it was definitely 'telling'
i enjoyed this sad read....now i must search for a lighter subject to restore my morning brightness...pmedlin
Spoken with a sneer (Poetry) - 6/26/2012 10:40:48 AM
Sadly, this is very true. You make some very valid point and I am sure many who read your words will relate. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
Spoken with a sneer (Poetry) - 6/26/2012 7:36:28 AM
Those two words although often the hardest to say, when said with sincerity, are almost as good as three other words.
Spoken with a sneer (Poetry) - 6/26/2012 6:06:56 AM
A complex personality, more than likely wounded deeply, belittling and lashing out in an effort to make the other feel as horrid and worthless as he/she does. Life is plethoric with these types. And it, indeed, puts ones moxie to the test. It's good that you chose to write about it instead of picking up a gun. Poetically you've written a fine flowing reflection, Anita, which everyone will relate to.
Peace to you ...

COUNT THE FALLING SANDS (Poetry) - 4/7/2012 11:32:15 AM
Great, ominous feel to this one, Anita. I think we all have moments like this where we weigh our past against the future and can really see ourselves with clarity.

I love this! That's the great thing about the new car keys. If I lose the van, I can just hit the panic button and broadcast to the whole mall where my car is parked! What a boon for us silver oldies!
Zilch (Poetry) - 3/3/2012 7:17:01 AM
Another bit of wordsmithing finesse. Why is it so few people find this kind of exploration absolutely compelling?
Beyond The Margins (Poetry) - 3/3/2012 7:06:36 AM
Couldn't help but flash on the reality of today's writing that "means something," you know, the kind that allows "eternal were the days" to continue. So much wordsmithing today is surface, surface, surface, leaving little discovery of the layered essence of a thought. As I struggled through Infinite Jest, I was reminded of the rewards of such discovery. Your writing suggest same.
Cultural Insanities (Poetry) - 2/28/2012 8:10:53 PM
With so much packed into four short lines, it challenges the senses to sort out the directions this points us in. To associate the word "tribes" with not only the given nature of the mid eastern countries, but to think the distinction through... we arrive in our own back yards, where for me, the fracturing nature of our own religious insanity grabs the metaphor and throttles it into even greater organic meaning. Succinct, incendiary for the thinking mind, and quiet in its imploding wake-up call... again, for the conscious.
COUNT THE FALLING SANDS (Poetry) - 2/27/2012 2:56:37 PM
I hang on your every word here, building breathless-and-breathtakingly to that stunning and well weighted/waited (!!) open-ended conclusion. This is sheer brilliance, Anita, and all your poems are so well worth the wait! You never lose your touch and the musicality and beauty of your diction is sweet indeed. Especially love the concept of "Moments seed the root of years" - so visual! So glad to see you back and thank you for your lovely visits to my pages. xx
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 2/25/2012 8:01:03 AM
How many times have we all had such a frustration? Your style of charming our angst is not without appreciation, I'm sure. Well done.
COUNT THE FALLING SANDS (Poetry) - 2/25/2012 7:56:37 AM
Wonderful use of metaphor, allowing the imagination to appoint its symbolic meaning to the common in the uncommon place, i.e., sand as a lubricant, moving through our hands, performing a removing of dead cells, cells past their usefulness, allowing new life to sprout and live on. The idea that memories are forever imprisoned, save the mind finding a way to embrace, rather than attempt to exile them. You've managed to say a great deal with a few well chosen words. Well done.
COUNT THE FALLING SANDS (Poetry) - 2/24/2012 9:12:37 AM
Very beautiful and vibrant with fate and wisdom.
COUNT THE FALLING SANDS (Poetry) - 2/23/2012 6:07:13 PM

BEAUTIFUL!!! A perfect utterance in my book and well worth the wait to see your name on the board again. My dear girl, you just get better and better - LOVE the Alda quote, too. Your words illustrate his maxim wonderfully. Love always and thanks for your visits to my den: always a treat, always welcome! :)) xx

This really is food for thought. Designed to make every reader take stock and evaluate.
The Essence That You Are (Poetry) - 1/10/2012 8:21:48 AM
What a beautiful job you have done of wielding Alda's deeply wise
observation into a poem that is a wake-up call, yet at the same time, oddly consoling.

Nicely done; thought-inciting words, Anita. There is a typo in the word "it's" (it is). It should be "its" - the possessive. I make typos all the time and I appreciate it when they are pointed out to me so I can correct them. Thank you for sharing, Anita. Love and best wishes,

Cultural Insanities (Poetry) - 8/30/2011 1:11:57 PM
Originally, we banded together for survival. But I think that concept has gotten out of hand when you have to “belong,” to make a difference. That's why I will continue to defy what people think a quadriplegic must be and continue to shake them up by doing it, “my way.”
Cultural Insanities (Poetry) - 8/28/2011 1:49:25 PM

Hmnnn I looked at the pic after reading this Anita, and it seemed to bring to mind that just like the zebras we may all bear the same outward coverings but it is our actions and deeds that truly define who we are the samd as the herd has a leader that somehow distinguished him. herself.

That capitalized title does demand attention. Even though life evolves/exists on the cutting edge of a continually breaking wave, moving forward in time, everything we are, or will be, is still bounded; like being in a frame. Enjoyed your insight ... richard

thumbprints borne upon the soul and birthed through the soul: this delicate little lyric whispers sweet things to mine, Anita. As gentle as the fragile web of life we be each caught up in. Catch'ya soon! Love always, and great to see you poeming again. xx

Hey, I can see you. Guess who.
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 7/1/2011 9:01:21 AM
Funny, yes. and a little frightening. I may color my car gone. -gene.
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 6/29/2011 5:16:41 PM
Oh the perils of the parking lot! What fun poem and well written, thanks for sharing.
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 6/29/2011 4:37:09 PM
I'm with Amor...this is great -
written with humour and a light touch
and the point is well made, the anonymity,
sameness, conformity, death of the individual,
swallowed by corporate control.
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 6/29/2011 3:02:29 PM
Now that's a cute little write. I hear they have chrome paint now. That way your car would outshine the rest. ;-)
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 6/29/2011 9:25:49 AM
This is great...I love it...not that I ever get lost and unable to find my car but if they were all the same color? who knows!
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 6/29/2011 5:46:11 AM
I'd go for the tye-dye look, it will rarely be copied...hope you didn't walk home...;-)e
Silver Sea (Poetry) - 6/29/2011 5:38:59 AM
amen to that!
be well, dear one!
If You Can See Me (Poetry) - 6/25/2011 2:42:20 PM
I can see you. Dang, Anita, I was feeling quite invisible myself. I was actually toying with the theory that I was invisible, so this poem made me laugh, but on the other hand...I know that feeling. Hugs,
If You Can See Me (Poetry) - 6/22/2011 4:41:21 AM
Excellent offering...all I can see is that this is spooky...and the delivery date of a ghost....lol!!

If You Can See Me (Poetry) - 6/20/2011 5:44:45 PM
Great delivery, Pax,
the breaks and spaces, the questions...
uncertainty everywhere, reality grip elusive.
If You Can See Me (Poetry) - 6/20/2011 4:02:13 PM
Yes, this was a really weird dream!
If You Can See Me (Poetry) - 6/20/2011 3:00:52 PM
ICU, UCme. A very strange view of a dream state, I think?
If You Can See Me (Poetry) - 6/20/2011 12:47:52 PM
Well I can't see you either but I can read you so in some form or another you must be whole...e

Nice, Anita. Different from you. I like folks who keep me on my toes:) Hugs,
Being Human (Poetry) - 6/14/2011 9:20:16 AM
we are definitely special when we move above our human condition ...
you put this poem together quite well ... enjoyed reading ...
Being Human (Poetry) - 6/8/2011 3:34:26 PM
Being human also seems to bring out the worst in us. Like children, we plunge into ideas without thought of the consequences. I just hope we can retain being human when the crunch comes.
Being Human (Poetry) - 6/8/2011 8:12:29 AM
I think too, that there's a distinction between being merely human (we use that phrase to say we're fallible) and being humane. That we have the choice to be the latter is a great blessing, both to ourselves and to others. You bring out such good points. --Charlie
Being Human (Poetry) - 6/7/2011 10:19:01 PM
A gentle and wise view, Pax;
no crude preaching and the point
is better made and more subtly for that.
Being Human (Poetry) - 6/7/2011 8:17:46 AM
Well said indeed...Hugss

beautifully seasoned Goddess.
Well done, AP

Wise words, AP, expressed with the clarity of true self-realization.

Housefrau Zombie (Poetry) - 3/20/2011 10:54:02 AM
Reads like a plan. I especially like the mildew order and dust bunny fur balls. Some great humor for the situation you find yourself in. Hope you get out of the house once in a while so you won't get zombied in.
Housefrau Zombie (Poetry) - 3/16/2011 11:20:09 AM

Housefrau Zombie (Poetry) - 3/14/2011 2:17:04 PM
... even the word "housework" brings out the glazed zombie in me, Anita! My poor house could sure use a good wife: hope his prayers are answered! :)) Love it when you post... Hope you're in the (fluffy!) pink! xx
Housefrau Zombie (Poetry) - 3/14/2011 1:07:08 PM
Oh, the truth can sometimes be very funny. As proved
by your Housefrau Zombie. -gene.
Housefrau Zombie (Poetry) - 3/14/2011 6:58:09 AM
A clever and witty write. I'm sure Erma would grin as she read this one.

Winter Pearl (Poetry) - 1/22/2011 4:16:53 PM
"Winter Pearl" is pristinely conceptual. It is fresh with the perennial ink of creativity Pax. A concise rendering relating a wonderful thought. I bid you love and peace my dear friend. Jon Michael
A Morning Wrapped In Rainbows (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 7:14:56 PM
A well honed wit, I say, Anita. This was a really fun read.

LOL!!! You never lose your touch, Anita, and are so cool and colourful with your clever humour whilst writing always elegant and delicate verse. So good to see you post again - is the beautiful art yours, too? You are rocked by rainbows indeed! :)) All the best in this coming year. xx
A Morning Wrapped In Rainbows (Poetry) - 1/9/2011 9:36:05 AM
a morning wrapped in rainbows can lead to a cast of stars ...

Love the tongue in cheek humor that you incorporated in this one Anita, wish we could all wake to rainbows.

Winter Pearl (Poetry) - 1/4/2011 7:48:34 PM
I like the clarity of your images and the allusive sweep of your metaphor. This is a compact cluster of stars, a constellation by which one may steer his interpretive ship. I see the call for cooler heads, serenity and calm composure - pearls of wisdom necessary for a life which must face and endure privation and austere elements of winter. More could be said... your poem elicits deep responses. Thank you.
Winter Pearl (Poetry) - 1/4/2011 7:29:36 PM

Love the humor in this piece, Anita. Great rhythm and rhyme. I know that's difficult when you have a theme. Too fun to read:) Hugs,
CARVED AND KNIFED BY ART (Poetry) - 10/22/2010 2:42:31 PM
Aah, I like the twist at the end. I wasn't expecting it. Great descriptions along the way, too, Anita. Every time I read you, I feel a parallel; our styles are very similar, I think. It's nice to see you posting more regularly. Hugs,
CARVED AND KNIFED BY ART (Poetry) - 10/12/2010 6:17:48 AM
Marionettes, carved wood, papier mache or human flesh. Manipulated at the puppeteer's will. Which of life's qualities are imbued in their figures? Reflexive actions to the puppeteer's Draconian amusement? Your poem asks many questions makes many poignant statements. It stirs the soul's discontent and offers insight. Love and peace to you my friend. Jon Michael
CARVED AND KNIFED BY ART (Poetry) - 10/11/2010 2:50:20 PM
Held hostage like a boxed puppet is a near death experience.

fascinating extract of personal being ...
CARVED AND KNIFED BY ART (Poetry) - 10/11/2010 3:35:34 AM
stirring write, thought provoking
CARVED AND KNIFED BY ART (Poetry) - 10/11/2010 3:34:40 AM
Captivating write that speaks of pain and want, and the need to be accepted and valued...
CARVED AND KNIFED BY ART (Poetry) - 10/11/2010 1:35:18 AM
The title suggests pain, more than suggests...puts it out there in all its hardness, harshness and cruel beauty, and the image of marionette is more than image, it is human truth...that final line kills me.
This is splendid, Pax, truly.
Step Away From Stance (Poetry) - 10/7/2010 1:04:27 PM
