Lisa Tomey’s Poet’s Connection on October 24, 10 am-12 noon, poets from across the counry reading their published poems in What it is to be a Woman online!
This special meeting of the Poet’s Connection will be a poetry reading with contributors to What it is to be a Woman anthology. “An anthology of women on fire! A collection of women coming from all directions of life, aflame to reveal who they are and how they came to be today’s woman! Women’s stories aired for the first time, in print, defiantly, daring you to challenge their choices in life whether they continue a contented life at home tending a happy family or strike out into the wilderness. The modern women of today lived more widely divergent lives than history has shown before. We are living longer with more freedom and taken advantage of a freedom to change oppressive lives to ones that blossomed us into beauties.”
Sage leaves to cleanse negative spirits from my home.

Have I mentioned that I love Costco? I fought against the principal of paying to shop in a store and fought against the store, believing it was for families, not for people like me who buy in small quantities. Friends argued for years before I gave in. Now I love it and save money too.
The cardinal who looks me straight in the eye each morning, nods his head then feeds heartily.
My Tachyon pad that keeps arthritis out of my hands and may have helped heal my Wet macular Degeneration eyes.

Autumn is around the corner. My favorite time of year.
