Michelle, I don't know how I never knew this before, but you are one of the finest, most expressive writers on AD. I have three kitties and they are the embodiment of serenity.
As for your Fibromyalgia, my best advice to anyone who suffers under and auto-immune disease is to contact a support organization for that disease. Ask for a referral to a doctor who specializes in Fibromyalgia.
Regular doctors might have heard of the disease and have a marginal understanding through reading journal articles. But, a doctor who specializes in it, will have treated hundreds of patients. And first hand knowledge trumps book knowledge anytime.

A cat's purr is the most soothing sound to me; it has been medically proven that having a pet brings down blood pressure, relieves stress, and reverses depression.
A beautiful, beautiful tribute to our furry prescriptions in feline form. :)
If I were a cat, I'd purr. O, what the hey...*purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr*

You've got a point. My grandparents always used to say that a furry or feathery friend is better than all the medicine in the world and will keep good luck coming your way.
Our best wishes for you and your little "Jolly",

Thank you for paying homage to Booker T. Washington. He was indeed a great man. Up from slavery is definitely a great book to read and to have in one's personal library.
Up from Slavery," The Autobiography of Booker T. Washington (Article) - 3/30/2005 3:15:38 PM
Michelle this is a very fine tribute to a very fine man. I was saddened to hear that attorney Johnny Cochran died. He was a man who also knew who he was and what he needed to do. I think it is high time we as people, and not separate races, build for our future on this green earth, created by the hand of God. We only live on this earth for alittle while, and yet, humans have destroyed a good portion of it, for their own greed. It is time, whether we are naturally male or female, or transsexual, or gay, or hermaphrodite, or rich, poor, or in between, that we wake up now, before it is too late. I think that all weapons of mass destruction should be deactivated, all guns melted down to make other, more productive things. I think it is time that all of the nations of this earth, stop bickering with one another, and come together in peace and friendship. I hate war, I hate bickering, I hate that others lord their money over others who don't have any, or much at all. Thnx Michelle for sharing. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & (((HUGS))), Barbie

Winter Squirrel (Poetry) - 9/8/2008 4:15:15 PM
It's amazing the wonder wild animals inspire in us, even the birds and garden creatures - Mr fox sand the secretive hedgehogs. I like squirrels, but worry that our native reds are being displaced by the greys. Nice poem!

Lost Baby Moonsong (Poetry) - 1/31/2007 9:49:43 AM
All babies eventually go away, whether they grow up and move away or they pass on (most unfortunately). I could see a woman whispering as I read; very dim-light, hushed night, quiet saddness kind of read.
Thank you for sharing it.
Dark (A Collab- Eric/Michelle Mead) (Poetry) - 1/30/2007 8:26:39 AM
Okay, Michelle, you know very well that a grown man never cries, but you managed to do that to me with this one! You did. It's all your fault! Alcohol is the readily available and legal drug. It does not matter if it is crack or ice or smack or or peyote or speed or LSD or pot or opium or coke -- all these things take you to a place where harming people is lost in an illusion of your own well-being. People can die when you're high, and you may not even remember. When I lived out west in Redwood City CA, I had a friend who was on speed. He came back to his apartment house (stoned) and he saw the shadows of the cops hiding in the bushes. He pretended not to see, and went in and up to his flat, closed the door, got out his shotgun, and then he saw the cop standing in his door, and he blew that cop away, reloaded and ran down in front of the building and blew away those cops in the bushes. The "cop - standing in his door" was his own coat, hanging there. This friend died that night, blown away by very real cops who felt really frightened by his wild shotgun. Point is, the illusions he was seeing might have been his wife or his kids, might have been any real person, and he would never have known. I have put some of this story together from knowing him and hearing his stories over a long period of time. Did he hurt anyone other than himself? Yes. He did have a wife and two kids. He had a sister and a mom and a dad, and he had a friend in me. We all lost. There are not any winners when it comes to drugs in any form.
My blessings to you, Michelle.

Beauty and Sin (Poetry) - 1/23/2007 11:04:43 AM
The reality of the past and its cruelty are incribed in the many books of history, yet it is the faith of one who devotes and ultimately gives their life in belief that many remember...

Beauty and Sin (Poetry) - 1/21/2007 2:54:04 PM
Interesting write my friend, such a tragic story, hard to believe that events such as that happened...history of those early saints is fascinating and deep. Great write!
Beauty and Sin (Poetry) - 1/21/2007 2:48:42 PM
The story of the early saints are all fascinating when we take them in context, each one poetry itself, this poem though sad exemplifies that beauty of blessing and love of the master.
Beauty and Sin (Poetry) - 1/21/2007 11:53:55 AM
Such a tragic story and yet, one of deepest faith. What ego they had, to believe that she belonged to them and that they had a right to take her verginity from her. Rape was accepted back then and families even gave their daughters away for food, animals, money or a higher position in the community. We are blessed to live in different times. This is a beautiful poem, Michelle.
Beauty and Sin (Poetry) - 1/21/2007 11:51:57 AM

Yeah we've stopped doing that, and a good burning at the stake.
Like so many others before and after, it shows us like pathfinders, how true and strong faith is, once he has ones entire will....
No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/21/2007 6:13:56 AM
Life is full of ups and downs, in a relationship we must give and we must take. I think that is why that so many couples marriages don't last, they just give up too easily. Great write!

No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/20/2007 7:04:15 AM
TO THE 'LOVE-BIRDS' ---
Is this the Face that launched the Airship that brought the 'Bloody Brit' to Brooklyn? (NY, at least - a lil poetic license here).
FINALLY - a picture of TRUE HAPPINESS! Ole Andy's quiet smile is not unlike that of the 'cat that swallowed the canary!' You know, the one that just got UN-CAGED!
Somehow, I had this vision in my head of this thin, gaunt, stately John Steed character, bedecked in a Derby --- cool, maybe even cold, knowing grin on his countenance...
Instead, we have the warmth and comfort of a CHERUB... a cuddly TEDDY BEAR, who seems to be perfectly content just BEING THERE!
LOVE - you NAILED IT, DOLL! I was married and faithful for 34 years, but Alas, we grew apart. After 3 years of arguments and blaming, over a failed financial venture, she finally gave her ultimatum, and said she wanted her FREEDOM. I was told that "What once was, is no more... but you will always have a place deep in my heart."
Yes, we are human. Yes, we do say and do, hurtful things. But, like your beautiful sentiment, the SECRET is so simple - NEVER, EVER GO TO BED ANGRY!
May HE Who watches over all of us, Bless you both with unending understanding, tolerance, and the ability to compromise!
In the immortal words of ROCKY, from "As Time Goes By" (my all-time favorite LOVE story) - " ROCK ON !!! "
No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/20/2007 4:54:05 AM
Oh Michelle, this is so true. You've captured in your poem so many feelings that love can overcome -- Very well done and expressed.
No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/20/2007 3:22:55 AM
Michelle this captures the insecurity of all lover's who from time to time argue, fight or just say things they regret. Most come to learn that like you they love no matter what but they can still be angry, mad and yea dislike their partner for a spell becasuse of mistakes made. My test has always been..."How would I react if I lost my lover permanently without a chance to make up." It was usually enough to find a way to make things right again. Good to see you on board again, I have missed you.
No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/19/2007 9:46:12 PM
This poem is one that shows the true test of love within a relationship, a nice work that brings forth this view of thought...
No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/19/2007 9:31:50 PM
Sadly, it is true. Until we finally adjust to each other, which I have found can take years, there is a kind of power struggle that gets in the way and causes us to argue or become hurt or angry. If we really love, then we love through it and with time, we get past it. The most foolish thing we can do, is to give up on love. I think that most people who walk away from love will do it repeatedly and will never have a happy relationship. "That which does not kill us, makes us strong" and so it is with the bond between two who truly love each other. Getting through the tough times together, makes the love and the relationship stronger. Great write, Michelle.
No Matter When (Poetry) - 1/19/2007 9:00:22 PM

It can be difficult to find happiness in today, when holding onto yesterday’s memories. Those memories are a part of us, though, so we must to find a way to incorporate them into our days so that they can color our future instead of sinking us into a state of melancholy. Beautiful poem, Michelle.

Stunning Michelle, Stunning.....
