The Legends of Nevermore County (Book) - 1/25/2008 11:56:11 PM
It brings back childhood memories a world apart: I grew up in Romania. But there also was a bridge (only one), made of a split branche, giving it a Y shape.
Your story is dreamlike, carries the reader in a wild, mistery world, where one would like to live, carried by fantasies.
Being in the Middle - a Children's Story (Short Story) - 6/1/2008 2:33:34 PM
I am the middle of 3 girls. I remember feeling a bit out of it--especially as I was born in December near Xmas and my 2 sisters had summer birthdays.
I really could relate-and yes-the middle of an Oreo and a Twinkie are indeed the best part!

This is a really cute piece, Adele. I am one the eldest child--so I can only imagine what it must be like to be in middle. Still, you're right about the Oreos...

Great Essay! I suppose I should take offense since I'm an editor, but your writing is refreshingly entertaining. if you would like to see this unpublished essay published for real, I am offering you the option of submitting it to me (Nadia Giordana) at the Mississippi Crow Magazine (a quarterly print publication)mississippicrow.msn.com. I promise, it will not be rejected!
Rejection Slips (Article) - 8/14/2006 7:15:12 AM
At least you have a personal note attached. The ones that are most insulting are the ones so Xeroxed they are crooked on a page and barely legible becaused they've been copied so many times.
Writing is a crap shoot.

A humorous slant on politics. Thanks for making me laugh about such a sad subject. I liked the clichés bouncing from the walls. Elections these days seem to be nothing but repeats of past elections. The "ostrich-like" hit the "nail" on the head and drove it home. It seems most politicians at the presidential level have their heads in the ground hiding from reality. Let's hope that the outcome of this election and our next president will change that image. We can only pray and hope.

This poem brought back a similar memory of when I misbehaved and was sent to the Principal's office. I got scolded ans had extea homework.

What a visual interpretation of a child's first visit to the principals office. Great metaphor.

Been there done that....had a few nightmares myself, some that I had to hold on tight, one or two that became a reality and had to hold on even tighter. Great write!

I love your observation ability. Not many would pick up on that :-) Wonderful write.
The Village Idiot (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 6:56:56 AM
Very interesting thought you conjure up here. Who actually is the idiot? If the others hear a beat of nonexistent music what does that say about the power of suggestion on weak minds? Reminds in a much more poetic way of the old Emperor's New Clothes story. I enjoyed your poem.
The Village Idiot (Poetry) - 8/8/2006 5:21:22 AM
LOL, this is marvellous, and just who is really the village idiot huh?

Old Holy One (Poetry) - 8/7/2006 4:55:54 PM
This symbolistical-surreal-impressionist satirical poem makes me realize that the IN-VERB is on its way to etch REASON on huamnkind.
"The Holy One" is a poetic-philosophic flower scented with aromas of wisdom and historic vision.

Cleanliness in next to Godliness!
I remember my mother telling me that. This protagonist you have conjurred, this holy one, although seemingly enlightened, has forgotten the more basic of human requirements it would seem.
This one made me chuckle ...
