Simply beautiful...

Colored Snow Flakes (Book) - 9/1/2006 5:04:53 PM
Helen, Seems to be a real page turner. One that I would break out the box of kleenex and in my mind (only) a 357 for good measure. Wow, I do believe that you have a winner here and one that most of us can relate to. My very best to you. We could trade books if you like. Yours sounds delicious. Janny xoxoxo

Colored Snow Flakes (Book) - 8/19/2006 6:34:55 AM
Looks really good, Helen. I am humbly impressed and respectfully, I wish you much success. Love and peace to you, Regis

A beautiful excerpt, very much enjoyed this 'little taste' of your book, B&R

lovely cover, enjoyed the excerpt

Colored Snow Flakes (Book) - 5/22/2006 4:20:06 PM
I am not sure how long that excerpt has been here but am suprised you haven't received any comments. Your writing is so smooth and seems effortless. I am not saying the kinds words because you yearned to hear them, I always write from the hip, and your writing is beautiful. Love & Peace, Rebecca

An inspirational story indeed, Helen, and it sounds as though it could be a report from real life rather than fiction. Thank you for sharing.

Hello Helen, Thanks for your story. Faith can definitely move mountains! I am a walking miracle myself. It's a shame that some people have to attribute miraculous healing to something "we" did. What a mighty God we serve! KJ Jacobs

Teenage Dreams (Short Story) - 5/30/2007 4:00:16 PM
Wow. This is a fantastic story of life. Your dreams directed you. I wish that I had the same luxury of knowing when the right man came along. Or did he ever? lol. That joke is on me. But your story got me to thinking and my dreams do lead me from time to time. Just not where or who my husband would be. excellent Liz

Awareness (Article) - 9/13/2007 11:23:51 AM
This is fine advice and counsel, Helen. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Awareness (Article) - 7/1/2007 2:09:18 PM
So true. Great reminder of what makes life enjoyable and bearable is talking to loved ones and friends. Life is short and petty squables aren't worth not talking to a sister who has been a pain in the ****. So I call and avoid a lot of guilt. Birthdays I also try to remember, too. But still there doesn't appear to be enough time to get to everyone no matter what. Wise words and appreciate your sharing. Excellent. Liz

Awareness (Article) - 1/2/2007 4:32:47 PM
Wonderful. We all need to be reminded of this. Thanks for sharing your pain.

Just Another Job (Article) - 11/7/2006 12:06:53 AM
It's a great blessing to be in a job that you have worked hard for to obtain and enjoy. Not only that, to do a work that gives others enjoyment too. So it's not just another job, but an earned vocation you have.

An Excerpt From my Book: Colored Snow Flakes (Article) - 7/23/2006 9:00:35 AM
A great reading excerpt. Love the ending the best, life is indeed not easy for some, but really an exciting journey of discovery! B&R

An Excerpt From my Book: Colored Snow Flakes (Article) - 7/23/2006 8:06:25 AM
The roads of the world ahead may be filled with bumps and twists as well as pains and sorrows. I may become bruised and shattered, but I can not become defeated unless I stop trying, stop believing in myself nor who I am. No one else has the right to define me, or label me unless I allow them too. Very sage, Helen, and a powerful reminder that we all truly need now and then, especially in this chaotic modern world of ours today.

I liked this and, yet, I hate shopping, lol. You made Martha and Mary come alive. I suggest to proof-read a bit more, the grammar needs a bit of polishing. Thank you :-)

The War (Article) - 4/2/2006 10:01:01 AM
Thanks for sharing this memory. In a letter recently I received from a young soldier in Iraq he said the words 'It's not like the movies, or anything you've ever seen, this blood is real!' That gave me an idea, but I'll never have the true, vivid picture that he's experiencing...

Helen, What a thought provoking poem,and it is true. No matter what the discipline or career,being the best will cause pain and tears of joy as well as tears of sadness which result from the painstaking,incessant work. I love this one. Continued success Barbara Henry

Ashes (Poetry) - 3/14/2008 9:44:46 AM
This piece felt so sad, bitter and hurting. Sometimes people causes us such undue pains and heartache in this life... and often without care. I really enjoyed reading it. jkb

A Chanced Meeting (Poetry) - 3/7/2008 5:48:58 PM
As I read this, I thought of the countless people I've brushed shoulders with, but then parted from, probably never to meet again. I felt myself tense as I read the part about "waves splash endlessly against the bow". Strong visual imagery put me on board. For a moment, I was there. -Zach

Food for Thought (Poetry) - 2/18/2008 3:03:04 AM

Excellent! I was thinking just the other day what a lonely sound a ship's horn can be [do they call it a horn? my ignorance on the subject v a s t}. Think I feel another 'lonesome' poem comin' on.

Something to think about by K. Kendrick (Poetry) - 6/23/2007 11:59:40 AM
I agree, Helen. Mothers should be honored all year round, not just on one day. Mothers bear the leaders of the world, the factory worker, the waitress, the policeman, and many more. Mothers do the shopping, ironing, washing, cleaning, cooking, raising the children, clothing the family, keeping the family in the ties that bind. And many times these tasks are done while holding down a job, as either a single mother, or a wife helping out. Thank you for sharing. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, adn at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WODNERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your sister, Barbie

Tears of Triumph (Poetry) - 5/12/2007 1:59:16 PM
Ah, here you've done it. A straight forward, as it is, pen to paper description involving the personal aspects of achievement. Extension, apprehension, reflection, determination, all there lining your verse. Any one who dares to dream knows this feeling well. This is excellent poetry.

A Chanced Meeting (Poetry) - 5/12/2007 1:47:51 PM
I enjoyed the way you presented your verse here. The familiarity of the vessels, the atmosphere in transition, the parting; each thought fits spot on. Very good writing, a pleasure to read.

That would be much appreciated, if not every retailer would go insane in an attempt to sell more and more each day. What ever happened to hand-picked flowers and hand=drawn pictures, seems so much more appealing than high priced whatevers... Love, R&B

Hard to keep peace at times, but oh, how rewarding it is. Is there a greater treasure than a long friendship? I don't think so! Thank you for reminding me just how precious my friends are.

Laughter isn't just for Humans (Poetry) - 11/14/2006 4:10:09 PM
I love this...I believe this, my little house dog hums...I can be singing or humming and she actually hums, maybe not in tune but she hums. I can rock in the recliner and she sits beside me and will hum. It's pretty amazing what animals can do, if one takes the time to and cares to watch them. I enjoyed this tremendously...great write..will be back to visit again. Blessings, Joyce Bowling

Laughter isn't just for Humans (Poetry) - 11/14/2006 8:12:43 AM
I love that picture, and one of my dogs truly does smile when he thinks something humorous is going on in the house. And most of our pets are sad, when either my spouse or I are sad. I believe they truly are much smarter than many care to believe.

The Purple Haze of Life (Poetry) - 10/31/2006 12:30:22 PM
Live your life, what the heck to what others say. If you're true to you, then that's all that matters, one can't please everyone or bother trying..

The Purple Haze of Life (Poetry) - 10/31/2006 7:27:54 AM
"The Purple Haze of Life" "Why is it those closest to you Are the harshest judges of your character? Shouldn’t they be on your side? Supporting you? Sharing your burden?" Sad, it really can twist you on the inside. You wrote a splendid narrative. Henceforth, I think we are all guilty of putting our trust in man, but we know we must turn to the one above, there lies all the answers. It is extremely sad when others seem to try to make the pressure even more unbearable when it is already enough to bear. It would seem they would try to be more compassionate at times of need, hugs! Take care, wishing for you speedy results, From the Heart of an Artist Quiet Storm

The Purple Haze of Life (Poetry) - 10/31/2006 6:48:03 AM
My Deqr Helen - I trust that venting this way - telling your friends about your anguish and trouble, has been good for you. I read with sadness and regret that life gets this low for you. While I have no answer, much less the magic wand with which to cure them, you should know that I care, and that I'm betting things will improve...soon! - Bill

The Purple Haze of Life (Poetry) - 10/31/2006 5:55:37 AM
this is an exceptionally well-written expression of betrayal, hardship and emotional fortitude! I'm keeping this as a reminder that it is not only I who struggle with these difficulties in life! Susan

The Purple Haze of Life (Poetry) - 10/31/2006 12:38:02 AM
Nothing stranger than folk, people say. This poem and its instrospection found resonance with me. It is odd how the people we strive to help tend to bite the hand that feeds them with either succor or deed. Maybe you're like me where instead of offering empathy you offer sympathy with the result you find yourself jumping in the ditch to try and pull them out. Problem is, when both are in the ditch, both are sinking - I know, I have been there so often that socially, I have been tempted to become a hermit, don't want to be hurt anymore. But we do have to keep going. Through faith, our reward is in heaven, that's our motivation. As Regis notes, glad you end on this possitive note.

Food For Thought / 4 (Poetry) - 10/30/2006 9:05:44 AM
In other words, the heart needs persuading, the mind asks questins looking for answers in order to be convinced, meanwhile, in some kind of foreordained way, the soul already knows which way the heart and mind are going to go. Pertinent quote to get one thinking.

The Day America Stood Still (Poetry) - 7/23/2006 9:03:06 AM
The innocent view of a child, touching and thought provoking, should we not all want to have some innocent fun, before we're wasted. Not only during frightning days like those. Keep this innocence with you. B&R

We Mourned (Poetry) - 7/23/2006 7:24:02 AM
I did go to school that day, and I vividly remember it. First, every nun in our school started weeping, like I had never seen any nun weep before. Then, they eventually told us to all go home. When I got home, my mother was sitting on the living room floor, in front of our tiny black and white television, sobbing hysterically. That's one day, I will never forget, for as long as I live.

We Mourned (Poetry) - 7/23/2006 7:13:00 AM
Helen - This is deeplly interesting... and troubling for me. How could you, a young girl, have such recall, and such shut-case opinions then? Do you still harbor such accusations today? If you do, would you tell me why? I was older than you at the time, a conseervative, and didn't care for Kennedy's liberal agenda, but what of Oswald, and why did he go after Ruby and kill him? Frankly, I'm not sure of anything that happended back then, but planned murder of a girl friend? I'm not convinced about either charge. However, I'm open to hear further from you on this one. With respect, - Bill

The Day America Stood Still (Poetry) - 7/23/2006 6:03:26 AM
Helen You evoke again the frightening scenario and memory of the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962, when the world tottered on the edge of Mutual Nuclear Destruction.. My memory actually recalls it was President Kruschov of Russia who was playing high stake games with Kennedy and America... We called Kruschov's bluff, and he blinked first...real torturous and scary stuff at that dramatic time ! And that's when the world really first took notice of Fidel Castro ! Peter

The Day America Stood Still (Poetry) - 7/23/2006 5:48:22 AM
I just wanted to have some fun before I was wasted I remember those extremely frightening days very well myself, and I think I was thinking similar thoughts, as were many of my childhood friends. You brought back some vivid memories here, Helen.

The Day America Stood Still (Poetry) - 7/17/2006 8:07:36 PM
True - that was forgotten - yes history repeats - but are we winning - I think not - no one wins in war - however, it does change the world in some way. We learned from the war of economy and prosperity and technology - but was it worth it - I think not - It remains to be seen now what the future will bring.

Our World (Poetry) - 6/22/2006 11:18:10 AM
Only those with strength against it will survive This is so true Helen. A lot of teens who have the strength will pull through the cracks of this world just fine, and they will be stronger for doing it too. I was 12˝ years old when my mother had me sent away. For 5˝ long years I cried endlessly, and suffered through so much abuse. But I am a survivor, and I am stronger for having been put through the ring of fire. I also agree with Jerry too, in that our political structure seems to be crumbling because people don't hardly vote any more. We need to stand up and make our voices heard. And we must have meaning in what we say and make sense. Then our words will be heard. I am one of several transsexuals helping our TS/TG organizations educate the mainstream about pre-born sexual identity, and that we are actually born the way we are, and we have dreams, hopes, goals just like everyone else. This is another one of those "cracks" Jerry was talking about. Some people would rather see others like me dead than accept us for who we really are. This is what we're trying to do, get education in our schools about transsexual identity, and what it truly is and why we are the way we are. I am so glad that teens related to this poem. Also Helen thank you for your very insightful review of my poem In The Night. I appreciate all your comments. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."

Fallen Petals (Poetry) - 6/21/2006 6:16:45 PM
There is passion and romance in this, but there is also a fear of rejection too. Richard said it right, that there is a lot of emotion in "Your snake like smile", but this isn't the only part that has emotion. This whole poem is so emotive, one has to be stone cold not to feel all the emotion in this poem. Thank you Helen for sharing. Also thank you for reading my biography. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your dear friend, Barbie "If I have to be this girl in me, Then I have the right to be."

Fallen Petals (Poetry) - 6/20/2006 2:38:48 PM
"Your snake like smile" there's a lot of emotion in those four words. Loving and wanting and not trusting all in the same moment. Very complicated! Richard

The Spider (Poetry) - 6/20/2006 10:14:20 AM
Certainly this describes the spider but it also can apply to certain people (which I believe is your intent here), Helen. Thank you. Love and peace to you, Regis

Very lovely tribute to your friend.

Our World (Poetry) - 4/2/2006 7:39:42 AM
I maintain that our world is stiff functioning, but cracks are appearing here and there, the sort of cracks which could eventually destroy us. Apathy being one of those cracks. Washington in-fighting being another of those cracks. Hate-spewed rhetoric on both sides of the political spectrum being another of those cracks. And last, but not least of those cracks is the idea that America is mother to be suckled until she is drained of all resources. Those are just a few of those cracks. Good poetry.
