Jane, Now you creeped me out...that is good writing to be able to do that just with an excerpt.

All In One Lifetime II (Short Story) - 10/27/2014 2:07:14 PM
Familiar tune in many ways, though being of the homestead variety of people my mother stayed home. Both parents (religious people)as I remember it now had abusing tendencies and I came in for a lot of it because I refused to be cowed. I fought back, my own "Shawshank Redemption" process which eventually earned me a similar freedom: that of the self-empowered. Thankfully that sort of upbringing does make you tougher and it taught me that "authority" was a belief system, neither trustworthy nor reliable. My final act of complete rebellion was to throw god out of my life entirely. Only then did life begin to assert itself; to make sense. I like your main page comment: "You may not believe as another person believes but you must respect his right to believe as he does." Mine is, "Believe what you will but don't believe it here!" which is a bit more assertive but quickly gets the point across. When victimized we must never become victims, we must not (Shades of Oliver Twist here). When oppressive or abusive "authority" claims divine right to do so, then obviously its god must be dethroned or the abuse continues, even if it changes formats. All abusive authority is illegitimate, including, and especially, god's. Only those who overcome, or at the very least stand up to, abuse can know what it means to be alive. A solid lesson that has long years behind it! Thanks for the reminder.

GOD, JANE...HE IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN HEAL YOU. ONE NEVER FORGETS BUT THE PAIN DOES SUBSIDE TO ALMOST NOTHING. I READ A POEM EARLIER BY AD POET, CONNIE FAUST CALLED 'THE BEAUTIFUL SIDE'. THAT'S THE SIDE YOU'RE ON NOW...WHEN YOU CAN LOOK BACK AND GLORY IN HOW GOD KEPT YOU AND BROUGHT YOU THROUGH SO MUCH. HE HAS USED THE PAST TO MOLD AND SHAPE YOU INTO THE WONDERFUL PERSON/POET THAT YOU ARE FOR,...POETS ARE MADE OF THIS. SO, I UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY ABOUT 'ESCAPE WORLD' AND I PRAY; MAY GOD LEAD YOU TO DO THE WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IN ORDER TO FINALLY DEAL WITH THE PAIN OF YOUR CHILDHOOD. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

All In One Lifetime (Short Story) - 3/2/2013 10:33:55 AM
It looks like you are starting an autobiography. Sorry that you were disliked by your mother. Perhaps she was jealous of your connection to your father. You certainly weren't ugly.
After my brother and I were born, my mother lost a baby, either stillborn or by miscarriage. But then, she had my sister. Mom let my sister's hair grow long and curled it so that she looked like Shirley Temple until she was about five. I have pictures of her first “haircut.” My grandmother never cut her hair, and I remember seeing her lay her dappled gray locks out on the table and comb them. She always wore a bun and I never saw her hair down.
I discovered love in the sixth grade. I think that we were in the fifth grade when my young mother decided that she would introduce us to the finer things and invited girls from our school over for “spin the bottle” and other kissing games. I don't think I learned how to kiss there, but I did fall for a blonde, discovered I had a boner when she sat on my lap, and that she loved that manly man, Rock Hudson. ;-)
My father was in the Golden Gloves for a while. That's where he got his cauliflower ears. My uncle rode the rails looking for work. Didn't find much.

A likely tale, that's for sure. Spike has joined the king of the butterflies and become a monarch. I'm sure when you read this to you grandchildren they will enjoy it.
I like the northern pike, that is, to eat them. But perch are better tasting.
All In One Lifetime (I) (Short Story) - 3/2/2013 9:32:23 AM
You remember that at three? My mother's notes show that I developed quickly, but my earliest memories only go back to about age four. I never felt the need to run away. Besides, the smell of mom's good cooking always had my brother and me home for meals.
We lived in a very bad neighborhood, but I tended to make friends with the good kids on my own. Mom was never critical about any of our friends. That was something I have always felt was special––The freedom to make my own decisions and take bone responsibility at a very young age.
I can't imagine your mother saving a Catholic! ;-) I hope he didn't become an altar boy.
All In One Lifetime II (Short Story) - 3/2/2013 9:13:58 AM
You look happy in the picture––typical Finnish good looks. My parents argued a lot too, especially when dad was drunk, and I wondered why they never divorced, but stayed together 62 years. With my twin brother around, there was never a dull moment ior time for an “escape world.”
I believe I know what you're hinting at the afraid to write about. The only thing that I feared was my dad's belt when I got in trouble, and that seemed to be quite often because as the dominant twin, I was always innovating and my brother found it quite easy to blame me for starting things––and it was true.
My mother instilled in me a good sense of time and I never was late for school. I guess you just were obeying your mother's instructions and it turned into a “failure to communicate.” My sister was a bit dyslexic, and she experienced some similar problems with my mother.

I have written much in some of my own history...
Here at the den...
sometimes releasing painful memories and looking at
it for what it was can help no matter if others are
incensed over it, it is the way to cope and release
what has happened to you!
I know what it's like to endure (as a smile child)
when someones behavior upon drinking gets nasty and

Magic At Ten Foot (Short Story) - 12/22/2012 5:59:08 AM
Fascinating fairy tale, Jane. Throughout the story you offered the reader many lessons about life and life's fantasies. Taken to heart this beautifully written little story instructs the reader that life can be what you want it to be if you just work at it as did Spike when he began to construct his cocoon, where he emerged eventually as what he had always wanted to be, someone who was able to fly with the fairies. Enjoyed the read.
Magic At Ten Foot (Short Story) - 12/22/2012 5:01:01 AM
this is a wonderful tale, so much fun in it
All In One Lifetime (I) (Short Story) - 12/2/2012 9:39:01 AM
Oh what a wonderful memory, two little souls
with the same vision and thoughts... back then
adults had their own ideas about religion and
felt theirs was right and everyone else was
wrong... But the innocence of youth and acceptance
is how it all should be...
This gave me smiles...

Thanks for a great story Jane! Seems that every gravestone has a story if we but take the time to look. Must say that the inscription is certainly different which makes it even more interesting.

Now that's an interesting story. And right at the same cemetery where your sister is buried.
I'm editing a novel about the author's great-great-grandfather, Ben Drake, who was in the Calvary in the Civil War. Anyway, he lived in Monroe County Ohio, Not far from where you are writing about.

That's wonderful and I'm glad you caught it in a poem. You're getting some of that left over tropical rain that has ended the Texas drought, for now. One guy who lived here when he was a kid said he used to swim in the streets. It's discouraged now because floods here bring out all kinds of nasty critters and other dangers lurking in those inviting floodwaters.

Fun image and delightful poem. It makes me miss the time when I was in Hong Kong as a child. Whenever it rains it pours down like Niagara Falls, and we were soaking wet, walking bare feet on the streets. We took off our raincoats for the fun.

Jane. This is special, and what makes it so special is the fact, after reading these lines, I know they came straight out of your nucleus. Brilliant.
Broken Dreams (Poetry) - 6/21/2015 2:33:33 PM
I know these feelings intimately; I just don't know why people stay in their "comfortable space" when it is so miserable for them. Come to think of it, maybe I do know why. Still, that does not "fix" anything. Thanks for making me reflect on my own situation, Jane. I am free but she is not. Love and best wishes,

When I was a child growing up, we had to work with cows and manure; that was our family's way of surviving. Like with fossil fuels, it is time to wean ourselves from eating so much meat. It is horrible for our planet. See, Jane. Your verses got me going again. Love and best wishes,

Oh those beaches with their eye candy all around. But nary a beach where stinging bugs don't about.
Fun At The Beach (Poetry) - 6/18/2015 8:23:07 AM
Let me spend a day at the beach,
enjoying the view.
The eye candy's best,
when the suits are see through.
I'll sit there,
soaking up the sun,
hoping the string bikinis,
all come undone.
Fun At The Beach (Poetry) - 6/18/2015 4:30:07 AM
All done until the next visit, right Jane? A fun and enjoyable poem!
Fun At The Beach (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 2:48:02 PM
The girls at the beach show what you'll get when you're married. No guessing anymore. It all hangs out.
Fun At The Beach (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 2:18:12 PM
Nude beaches are the best,
Of clothing there we wear the less,
Honestly I've never of it tried,
Wearing bathing suits the law,
And of it I've had to abide...-e-
Fun At The Beach (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 11:52:11 AM
Heh.Heh The eye candy is absolute at its best at the beach, you got that right. With your periwinkles grabbed on your way home, but I do believe that " hairy / Very large man" is right behind you. Ahhh . . . you may be getting more than periwinkles if the gleam in his eye is any indication . . .
Manure (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 8:50:54 AM
Manure is for sure,
Man made most pure,
For what ails you its not a cure,
But it can be bought at any feed store...-e-
Manure (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 7:37:08 AM
All a part of nature's wonderful cycle. I sure wish I could use all this I find posted here to grow some real fine literature someday. Don't you?
Manure (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 6:59:55 AM
It goes from one end to another,
and into a manure pit.
Then it's spread on the fields,
And that's no shit.
Manure (Poetry) - 6/17/2015 3:58:04 AM
Yes caca is caca and caca by any other name is still caca
Isn't that what we also call "Bull shit"
Kool write Jane enjoyed much
Love & peace be with you

Broken Dreams (Poetry) - 6/16/2015 12:38:24 PM
Poetry at its best
Love & peace be with you
Broken Dreams (Poetry) - 6/16/2015 5:04:33 AM
Dreams cannot be broken, they can be empty when not fulfilled yet. Sometimes it may take a little longer for dreams to fulfilled; but promises can be broken when given insincerely.
I hope this is only a poem you wrote, and doesn't reflect your present state of mind. Best wishes, Jane!

It's hard to believe that your happiness shines through an almost everyone your poems, can suddenly turn into despair. Something must have happened, that hopefully, in the long run will return you to your bubbly self.

Sand in places,
I can not reach.
That's what it's like,
With love on the beach.

The Marsh Goddess
is a sight to see.
when she needs to accessorize,
She can pick her earrings from the fancy tree.
Marsh Goddess Returns (Poetry) - 6/2/2015 9:22:43 AM
I love goddesses; and the March Goddess seems like a "keeper" to me. Thank you for this, Jane. Love and best wishes,
Marsh Goddess Returns (Poetry) - 6/2/2015 8:57:38 AM
You don't have to be up in Mentor Marsh to run into that girl. I see are quite often just before my head hits the flat screen of my iMac and I wake up. She's right up in there in the mist looking a lot like you just before my reverie is interrupted by that whack in the head.
Marsh Goddess Returns (Poetry) - 6/2/2015 3:44:36 AM
She's the guardian of the Marsh, making sure that Satan doesn't wake to destroy the marshland.

Marsh Goddess Returns (Poetry) - 6/1/2015 4:21:29 PM
The Marsh Goddess is on top of the Marsh and is hovering to ensure that the evil Satan will remain in the dead state forever. She does not trust this evil creature, for he has great powers, but not as great as the Marsh Goddess. As long as she can be within Satan’s burial site she can keep him where she wants him. Dead. Very much dead. Love the photo.

New Life (Poetry) - 5/28/2015 2:54:14 PM
This is so "right up my alley" Jane; it has been so since I was a child and my father showed me a bird's nest with eggs. He told me that we ought to be careful to disturb nothing since the parents could abandon the nest. I've always loved nature and it breaks my soul to witness what our species is doing to it. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes,
New Life (Poetry) - 5/28/2015 12:58:08 PM
It is amazing how dedicated birds are to their young. They will rebuild the nest over and over and have multiple hatchlings during the summer. The tragic part is, even though they have many offspring, so few survive even the first year. But that is the way of nature and nature is always nurturing new life so that the saga can continue.
New Life (Poetry) - 5/28/2015 9:09:35 AM
We've a robin's nest in the oak tree out front, I'm also waiting for the chirping to start. Several times a day I see her going to the nest. Seems like the same old bird comes year after year.

Always be the "free spirit" that is your self, Jane. I love the self-reflection shared through your verses. I also know that you would probably now have liked to have written "whose" in this verse: A candle who's light shines. My brother, who is a fine writer, always has trouble remembering to double check those contractions. Lol! Love and best wishes to you, Jane.
