My Father's Trunk (Short Story) - 1/16/2008 1:57:16 PM
There's that certain fascination with those things--trunks, bags, suitcases, etc. of the departed. I enjoyed your story.

My Father's Trunk (Short Story) - 1/16/2008 3:03:40 AM
Heart touching story, Beryl; very well penned! God be with you as you remember your daddy! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

My Father's Trunk (Short Story) - 1/15/2008 8:50:24 PM
Dear Beryl, Your story is very touching, in particular because it brings up the father's memory, and even more so because he was a soldier and a decent honest person as you mentioned. Short story but very succint. Thank you for sharing. Emile

A Dog is like a Person (Article) - 7/3/2010 8:07:51 AM
I loved this work. With just releasing our family dog "Over the Rainbow Bridge" it stirred up those wonderful memories. Yes, dogs are faithful right up until the end. I've always held the belief if one brings a pet into their home then one should allow it to live out it's natural life. Every pet we have had over the years were blessed by this very belief. They are not just dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, rats, snakes..etc. they touch human hearts in some form or another. This story is a wonderful example of devotion both on the part of man and the dog. Great write! dorothy

Childhood Evacuation World War 11 (Article) - 7/31/2009 4:28:51 PM
My father served in this war. I was born during the war, in 1940. This is a great write; very interesting read.

Be My Friend (Article) - 7/31/2009 4:24:27 PM
A friend of mine recently lost a pet it was hard on the family, but, it was especially hard on the children.

A Dog is like a Person (Article) - 7/25/2009 9:15:44 PM
That is an amazing story. Much of my "work" revolves around our dog children and their antics both real and imagined. Patrick Oh, and the dogs got ham instead.

Childhood Evacuation World War 11 (Article) - 7/13/2009 8:41:48 PM
BERYL - Thank you for sharing your deep feelings in this story. Americans, who never experienced such atrocities, have no concept of what British children had to endure. This lack of similar experience barsone from feeling any deep empathy. In my own case, having been born 8/25/1940 - I was too little to understand anything that was going on the world at the time. When the war ended in 1945, people were celebrating, having "Block Parties" and literally 'dancing in the streets.' But I didn't really know WHY! Accordingly, it is hard to even comprehend what children in Europe and Japan were living through - such a traumatic experience is unfathomable to us. While the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was horrendous, it was not on mainland soil. This is why the 9-11 tragedy came as such a devastating shock. Although heinous in nature, this terrorist act did not cause national panic - quite to the contrary, it UNIFIED US. It was really a "wake-up call" that removed much of our nonchalance, and prompted a greater level of both awareness and security needs. I CAN ONLY PRAY THAT 'GREEDY LEADERS' EVERYWHERE WAKE UP AND SMELL THE ROSES! Peace - Tom.

Be My Friend (Article) - 5/13/2009 1:53:55 PM
Very touching emotionally for me due to my recent loss. Captures the essence of a dogs unconditional love. Well done.

Childhood Evacuation World War 11 (Article) - 6/28/2008 2:26:51 PM
Dear Beryl, I am happy to see you write again. World War II is a sad one and it left a lot of terrible memories. I am very happy that you are able to describe many episodes for generations to come. In fact we are the only generation which can relate the horrors of that war. We are the real witnesses. Of course, there are, alas many other wars in this world. It will take many other centuries until human beings will get settled in peace. Meanwhile we have to live with all the pain and horror of the images and feelings that everyone, and in each generation had endured. Congratulations for this great write; it is your contribution to the world. However, now that you put them in writing, please take all these memories off your chest and do not keep any grudge against anyone. Love, Emile

My dear Ms. McMullen, If people are to be judged by their deeds ... if they are to be remembered by their children ... if all are to be honored by their commitments ... your father, God bless him, shall never be forgotten. Warmest regards ... Reginald V. Johnson

D-Day. June 6th 1944. (Article) - 3/1/2008 9:58:28 PM
Dear Beryl, What a beautiful description of D-Day. It is a great testimony by a witness of the historic facts. Some of your descriptions remind me of the time when the allied planes flew above us day and night to bombard the German forces which occupied the coast of Tunisia with the Italian armies. As a veteran officer I congratulate you for this marvelous presentation. Emile.

I Never Sleep' (Article) - 12/20/2007 9:23:41 PM
Very interesting and enjoyable reading.

D-Day. June 6th 1944. (Article) - 8/10/2007 2:10:40 PM
This article is very well written and written with alot of passion! It was a period of time that was filled with alot of hardship. Beryl captures that period of time with her discriptive words.

I Never Sleep' (Article) - 8/3/2007 3:17:02 PM
You have a special knack of telling histroy in a captivating manner. I throughly enjoyed reading this.

Boatswain the lamented One  (Article) - 3/19/2007 3:13:26 PM
well done

Be My Friend (Article) - 2/18/2007 9:04:51 AM
Very sad when they've been around for many years. My mother said our cat has recently gone into a coma. Although our current cat was born in our house, and our family has always kept pets, I have learned that we cannot make them happy, and they are often in danger because of our inability to communicate with them. I have decided that it is best to keep a bird feeder with water and a bird house rather than to have pets. Then we are assured that we do not interfere or enter fear in their lives.

Be My Friend (Article) - 1/14/2007 11:27:06 AM
I think that anyone who owns or has owned a pet can relate to this article. It pulls at your heart strings! The last paragraph was a tear jerker.

A Dog is like a Person (Article) - 1/12/2007 6:40:16 PM
yES, IT IS SO TRUE ABOUT DOGS - they have a teriffic memory, are loyal, friendly, affectionate and have characteristics like humans. The only difference, they cannot speak. Mine expresses himself in sign language. We understand each other very well. He is only 8# smart and loving; not unlike a child of one or two. Marguerite

A Dog is like a Person (Article) - 1/12/2007 3:59:04 AM

In Their DeathsThey Were Not Divided (Poetry) - 1/31/2010 6:16:22 PM
Isn't that the thing then? Cannot soldiers return from whence they've been? In the arena of the dead all are the same as you said. Mortal enemies to the death, until each have run out of breath.

In Their DeathsThey Were Not Divided (Poetry) - 12/31/2009 10:54:07 PM

Happy New Year! John Michael Domino

An amazing piece. You have brought the old story to light with great insights to Peter's thoughts and skillful words. I wonder how many have been given new hope by hearing how Jesus reached out to Peter and forgave and restored him. Thanks for writing and sharing!

My Guiding shadow  (Poetry) - 2/20/2007 11:34:48 AM
What a wonderful concept, guiding shadows maybe of our ancestors, maybe just people we have come into contact with along the way, who knows, i believe that there is someone or something but what it or they are, I'm not sure, God perhaps, I hope so. thank you for sharing this, Steve

The Saddest Day  (Poetry) - 2/9/2007 2:57:55 PM
Am right with you in this, Beryl, in several different ways, having faced both breast cancer myself and the illness and subsequent loss of my mother last year. You paint the shock, turmoil, numbness, questioning, practicality, self-examination oh so well here and your desires to both reach in and to reach out. Loved your sage and inspiring words in your bio and trust that your Psalms committed to memory may have "sprung to life", providing you with both solace and strength for the Dark Valley, plus hope for a bright new day. Such bonds reach beyond the place of separation. Bless you and thank you for sharing your pain, Kate xx

Love’s Passion  (Poetry) - 2/6/2007 6:20:20 PM
This is amazing. I read it to my fiance, giving you credit, of course, and he said that it sounds like a porno poem. He's not as opened minded as he could be about the spiritual nature of all things physical.

Black Lace  (Poetry) - 2/4/2007 12:37:28 PM

Farley (Poetry) - 1/20/2007 5:21:42 AM
"Farley" is, indeed, gorgeous, dear Beryl. And I say "is", because, in our memory, in our heart, they remain - they "are" and will ever be. He is definitely not far away, he's right there, with you. Love, Alexandra*

Farley (Poetry) - 1/19/2007 1:37:53 PM
A magnficient ode to him, Beryl - and he truly will always be - very near your heart and soul.

The Rainbow (Poetry) - 1/14/2007 11:18:40 AM
Another well written poem by B. McMullen! I enjoy reading the poetry.

Cruelty to Animals  (Poetry) - 1/14/2007 8:46:58 AM
Those who are cruel to animals are cowards, held withn the grip of inferiority complexes and desperately low self-esteem, who, through such cruelty, find the only (sad, despicable and ineffective) escape for their own inadequacies. Sadly, it will take much more than just punishing such actions, because while no efforts are invested on proper education there will always be emotionally deranged and unbalanced people who will go on perpetrating acts of cruelty, not only towards animals, but also towards deffenseless human beings (like children, elderly, handicaped, etc.) Peace, Love & Light Alexandra*

Cruelty to Animals  (Poetry) - 1/13/2007 8:29:09 AM
Beryl, I recently read an article where a woman was arrested for decappitating a pit bull because the owner owed her money and she wanted to get back at her. I think this person should be put away for a long time. To make matters even worse this person owns a kennel. I'd make sure she's well investigated. Life is precious for any living thing.

Cruelty to Animals  (Poetry) - 1/13/2007 8:23:18 AM
I don't understand how they do it either; it is sickening~! Powerful write; something must be done~ (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :( >tears! <

Cruelty to Animals  (Poetry) - 1/13/2007 8:10:40 AM
I don't understand how we, supposedly the most intelligent creature, can treat our four legged (or winged) critters in such terrible ways. I concur with Ed, it makes me sick.........a powerfully poignant call for change. Well done, Beryl, and continue to speak out for those who have no choice. (((HUGS))) and love, karla.

Cruelty to Animals  (Poetry) - 1/13/2007 6:54:14 AM
I've sadly never understood how we humans can so very often and so routinely be so viciously cruel to them. And I, like you, often do weep when I encounter the tortured ones.

Natures Passion Flower (Poetry) - 1/13/2007 5:01:49 AM
I love Beecher's quote, and your poem, Beryl.

Natures Passion Flower (Poetry) - 1/12/2007 8:46:35 AM

This is a wonderfully written poem! It evokes a feeling of peace and tranquility. You can imagine yourself standing by that wall with the night time falling. This would be a lovely poem to be hung up on a bedroom wall or to read to a child at bedtime.......
