I truly believe that something different works for everyone. Example, a teacher is a professional also, but there is nothing saying thta it is wrong for him/her to come home at night and grade papers in their pj's. I generally dress in a tee and jeans to write, more formal for business 'outings', but I have my own little quirk. I CANNOT write if there is anyone else in the house with me. (In my house the sign thing would be ignored) Where others 'think' their ideas, I speak them-to myself, into tape recorders etc, I seem to think more clearly aloud! I, too, am creative, artistic, but very easily distracted. I liked the way your article was written but think that what is obviously working well for you, may not be the best route for everyone. Writers are an artistic, creative bunch, and oh so very unique, sometimes to the point of being called 'eccentric'.

Cheryl, Thanks for the excellent character study. It matters not who he is or what he does... It only matters that you have captured his multiple possibilities for the creative mind to ponder.

Excellent advice but I draw the line at wearing my black wool suit while I write. :) My comfort clothes add to the flavor of my humor!
Stress Relief Using Aromatherapy (Article) - 6/2/2003 4:23:37 AM
Right up my alley. I've been practicing Aromatherapy Massage using essential oils since 1990. Very effective. Very informative, Cheryl.

I have used the aromatherapy way and I just love it! It sends stress right out the door. A great read!
Stress Relief Using Aromatherapy (Article) - 8/13/2002 4:21:14 PM
I truly believe in aromatherapy. Lavendar is also one of my favorites. I haven't tried the essential oils yet but I think I will have to make that investment . <Smile> thanks for the interesting write.

I have spent many a night which you speak of Cheryl. Oh yes those odd noises at night that you don't hear during the day will definitely give you the creeps. Brrrrrrrrrrrr. Thank you for sharing.
May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your den sister Barbie

Delightful Cheryl! I was right there in the house (not making noises though)with you.

You certainly captured 'the hospital scene' in this delightful poem.
I enjoyed reading it.

Nice work, Cheryl.
The House That Talks (Poetry) - 7/11/2008 7:59:55 PM
Cheryl..this was really cute....and I agree... I've done similar and a "house/home" can sure come up with some creepy sounds... I prefer staying under the covers just like you recommend. This had humor in truth... made me smile. lindalaw
Pain (Poetry) - 6/30/2008 3:05:50 PM
This one surprised me...but my feet always hurt...so I was drawn to it... simple title... painfully written and shared!

Last time I was in hospital for gall bladder surgery a nurse woke me too early. I told her to come back later for my bath, I was not a morning person, and she said Glad you told me I'll come back later and she did. I am paying for treatment and am going to get my way too.
Who Stole the Cookie Jar? (Poetry) - 6/20/2008 7:03:33 AM
Hello Cheryl, I read your poem, "Who Stole the Cookie Jar?". I found it so true that when one is craving a cookie and the cookie jar is missing...one can get very depressed. A fun read. Please feel free to visit my site here in the "Den"
Pain (Poetry) - 5/6/2008 9:35:07 PM
I've never hurt my feet like that, but have hurt my back!
You did a superb job of conveying the impact pain had on you.
Enjoyed the way you ryhmed in such a meaningful way.
I look forward Cheryl to reading more of your writing. :)

I definitely agree, Cheryl, "Home is really a great place to be." I was recently at Box Hill in the coronary unit a week ago. I had to leave because I coouldn't pay beyond 2 days. They told me to make sure that when I get back to the states, that I see my electrophysiolgist as soon as possible. The reson I couldn't pay the bill at Box Hill, was because my visa isn't permanent yet.
But I agree, that the middle of the night is a very ungodly hour to be doing poking, jabbing, squeezing your arm til it feels like it is going to break (bp), and thrusting a glass tube in your mouth to see if you have a temperature.
This poem was written in a very light manner, but I can understand the frustration behind wanting to go home. Thank you for sharing, Cheryl.
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 den sister, Barbie
Pain (Poetry) - 12/25/2007 5:08:19 AM
I feel your pain. You did an excellent job of capturing the pain as well as the self-made prison it created through lack of mobility and loss of freedom.
Ode to the Medical Team (Poetry) - 10/31/2007 2:35:13 AM
Your poem is the voice for numerous folk who have complained about the very same thing. Hospitals are great when you need them--even being woken up every two hours during the night--but there is nothing like home sweet home for a good night's sleep.

It sounds like a lovely place!

Cheryl, I thoroughlly enjoyed your poetry.
Ode to the Medical Team (Poetry) - 4/12/2006 6:54:35 AM
Why do they DO that??? The ONE place you'd think you'd get some
REST is the LAST. . .grrrrrrrrr. This is great, Cheryl. Hit
it right on the head!! ~~'Pea' <3

This makes me shiver with remembering the bad place at the vet's. They try and kill me with remedies and I will never go there again. Home is the best place - you are so right.
Very well written poem.
Ode to the Medical Team (Poetry) - 7/1/2004 4:08:40 AM
I can never get rest in the hospital. There's just too much noise and too many things happening at the same time. You write is very realistic. Thank you for sharing!

Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 3:00:34 PM
Both feet broken one week before your daughters wedding? I can see see why you would want to throw those crutches away
Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 10:39:56 AM
Well since both my feet are termed medically broken,,and will remain that way, I use two crutches everyday,,so I know that if we don't laugh about it, we will be very miserable, love the thoughts,,,Lisa
Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 9:25:10 AM
Oh,dear..one broken foot is bad enough, but *TWO*?? OWW!! ((PAIN LINES!)) I hope you get rid of your crutches soon; they ARE a pain (and I have no choice; I have arthritis, so I use one crutch!!). Especially when I trip over the damn thing or hit myself in the ankle!!!! Hope you are back on your feet (and off the crutches) SOON!! loved your poem!!!! love, karen.
Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 9:15:54 AM
ow, pain lines!! >cringes <
i know the agony of which you speak
although i've never broken *both* my feet
crutches are truly a pain in the ass
it's hard to look graceful or move with class
i use a cane, it's arthritis i have
on bad days, a crutch has to guide my path
so here are some (((HUGS))) that i give to you,
hope your crutching days are over--and soon!!
(((HUGS))) for an amusing write (TEN!!!) for a not amusing situation.
Love, karla. :)
Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 7:36:20 AM
I'm in stitches here
this is pretty funny
but you do know we all use crutches of one sort or another.
Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 6:12:28 AM
Terrible, both feet!! Like this little explanation of frustration.
Feet (Poetry) - 7/31/2002 5:57:36 AM
I hope your feet are fine.
i have never has a crutch and You remind me how
lucky not to have.
