Lisa, your poem touched me. It is so true,"the tears of women are sacred". Thank you for reminding us of that fact.

Very emotional. In the next to last stanza though you have the word of mispelled. Other than that I love the poem.
Black Eyed Susan (Short Story) - 10/5/2009 12:13:15 PM
Wonderfully descriptive. I could see in my mind all the words you'd written.

I like the way you make the ordinary seem extraordinary.
Got Goats? (Short Story) - 8/14/2009 6:16:07 AM
Toooo funny! I laughed throughout this story. Nice job, Lise.
Got Goats? (Short Story) - 7/26/2009 9:49:16 AM
This made me smile. :)
Sadly, I have not met a friendly goat. A goat chased me and treed me on top of a dog house as a child...so did an emu...and a goose. I have a lot of negative experiences with territorial animals, but it does not deter me.

Breathtaking poem, Lisa. You have captured the essence of a summer canvas, and of the heart. Such a treat to see you posting again :)
Black Eyed Susan (Short Story) - 6/30/2009 10:18:47 AM
Splashes of bright colors on a drab canvas is how this well written and very readable poem plays out for me. Enjoyed!

Gorgeous visualization throughout Lisa. Loved it...and the photo isn't bad either! :-) Beautiful place! Michelle
The Bitterness (Short Story) - 3/16/2009 7:00:59 PM
Lisa it is so sad when we loose a family member and even more so when they are so very close that their loss brings us to realize the depth of life and its unfortunate reality. I hope for all your family and friends to cherish those moments you have enjoyed with Clayton and pray that God will heal your pain...
love and peace...
The Bitterness (Short Story) - 3/16/2009 5:44:58 PM
Bitterness, perhaps not, more a mourning that ends with a tender touch.
The Bitterness (Short Story) - 3/12/2009 1:27:43 PM
This is indeed a tribute and commendation that any man or woman would be proud to have written for them and I am sure Clayton is smiling and looking down with love knowing how much you meant to each other.

Written from the unbridled love our pets give freely!

Great poem for all the pet owners in the audience.

Touching in the words and the feelings felt to the end...

So true... and the end of his era comes soon!
Got Goats? (Short Story) - 6/26/2008 2:19:33 PM
Oh, how fun! I have had a thing for goats ever since I was a small child and first encountered them at a petting zoo. I think you should get one or two.
Stripes (Short Story) - 5/24/2008 5:05:46 PM
Lisa you make this all sound so beautiful. I swear, girl, you could write the phone book and it would sound lovely. I'm not big on snakes, but I know what you mean about your bumblebee stripes. We have black snakes around here, and I'm glad of them, because they keep the rattlers away.
Stripes (Short Story) - 5/24/2008 4:42:55 PM
Great writing, Lisa; very well penned! BRAVA!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
Stripes (Short Story) - 5/24/2008 4:40:53 PM
What a visual treat. I don't think I've seen snakes courting.
Stripes (Short Story) - 5/24/2008 4:13:44 PM
The power of love - well done! Not particularly fond of snakes, but this is an excellent write -

Life in a Small Town (Article) - 9/7/2008 9:28:12 PM
Really cute. So many can identify with it. Some of our best American movies deal with small town life.
Life in a Small Town (Article) - 9/6/2008 6:52:59 AM
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I've used the word, content, since retiring to my little log cabin...and know exactly how you use it.
Dullsville became vibrant through your words...That's wonderful to be able to share! I hope you submitted this to your local weekly newspaper???
Life in a Small Town (Article) - 9/4/2008 3:07:50 AM
Your voice is eloquent but real. I can relate to morphing into small town life. Keep up the good work! Do you like your hair cut?

You captured the moment beautifully. Heck, even I want nachos now.
Hard the King shall Fall, Mr. Spitzer (Article) - 3/12/2008 12:25:23 AM
Well said! I find it interesting that so far they canít seem to figure out which illegal act to charge him with. Then again, the governor of NJ and a state policeman thought that laws like speeding, wearing seat belts and reckless endangerment were also for the little people only. Apparently they are right, laws are only for the little people. Fire them, arrest them, and fine the heck out of them by all means, I say. Thatís the little people of course!
Hard the King shall Fall, Mr. Spitzer (Article) - 3/11/2008 12:45:49 PM
Thank you, Miss Adams, for expressing with eloquence and clarity ... the responsible and only path this arrogant hypocrite should take.
I feel no remorse for him or any criminal. However, it saddens me when I contemplate how his actions have affected his wife and children.
Warmest regards ...

Flood-o-Rama (Article) - 2/29/2008 9:00:30 PM
Dayum. You take the reader there and make them feel the terror - floods absolutely terrify me - can't escape - water too powerful - yipe. Glad you made it through to write this memoir - well done -

What's Up, Nebraska? (Article) - 6/13/2007 8:01:55 PM
This is a masterpiece. You should market it.
The Nebraska Cougar (Article) - 3/6/2007 1:49:56 PM
Lisa--enjoyed your article. I have seen two cougars in Kansas before, and they aren't supposed to be here either. On one of them I got a state tracker from Kansas State University to come see if he could do track casts for a "confirmed" sighting. From the tracks he found he estimated that I had seen a 150-lb. cat, but he couldn't do a confirmed sighting because the cat wasn't down fully on his feet for a full plaster cast.
The Nebraska Cougar (Article) - 3/6/2007 6:38:22 AM
Excellent article, Lisa. I, too, am alarmed at the so-called progress that is chewing up our natural resources and leaving so much of our wildlife homeless and vulnerable. There is a black bear who lives somewhere out in the woods behind my house. Unlike your cougars, she is not the least bit afraid of us, and makes no pretense of hiding herself. She and her cubs bathe in the creek in full view. One evening, she barged up onto my deck and helped herself to the steaks on my grill! She is a very good mother, though I must say, a rather insconsiderate neighbor!
The Nebraska Cougar (Article) - 3/5/2007 11:25:59 PM
Article was very interesting reading. You seem to value the life of the cougar and I commend you. Did you value the life of the colt? Do you value the life of all animals? Shouldn't all life be valued?
The Nebraska Cougar (Article) - 3/5/2007 4:36:40 PM
Thank you Lisa for marking the passing of another great animal - we lose too many to our highways - much like our own young. I am envious as to your sighting - you are privileged to live in close to wilderness areas. In some ways, the public ignorance may be what allows these animals to continue to exist. No one hunting to kill.
The Nebraska Cougar (Article) - 3/5/2007 12:12:39 PM
This article expresses many of the things I feel about wild life and the environment. One of my favorite shows on TV is "Nature" on the PBS. This is a well written indictment of our crimminal disregard and ignorance of nature. Well done.

Pets can certainly be special. I just returned from a three mile walk with my three geriatric Jack Russell Terriers. They are always ecstatic to take these walks in the woods. I photographed them a few years ago on one of these walks and put the photos in a book with a little story. "Russells In The Leaves" is always a good reminder of how joyously energetic they were back then.

As Robert's wife for a time, I learned just what a wonderful man he truly was. Though his time here on earth was so short, I mean 53 is way to young, he left behind a true legacy. With many documentaries, his work with OST, NCAI Hazmat Emergency Response Training and so much more, he strived to help his people, his family, his friends. His life was hard from the beginning. He had his struggles, his dreams, his goals; some fulfilled, some yet to be fulfilled. We've shared a million wonderful memories. Thank you Lisa, for this lovely tribute. So sorry for the loss of a dear friend, lover and father.
We'll all miss him so much.

Paranoia Redux (Article) - 8/3/2006 6:33:52 PM
Point number one is: You're talking about your parents so of course you're going to be worried. Two is that we've been conditioned to be worried about T shirts. Drives you nuts, doesn't it? Your natural instinct is to wish your parents a great trip. It should be wonderful. But you worry. I would too. The trouble is, Spot the Looney can be played all over the world now.
What Happened When the Turtle Crossed the Road? (Article) - 7/1/2006 7:40:44 AM
Poetry? I think Mr. Tugman wants to unionize the turtles. Nice story. More people need to appreciate the finer things of the world.
