the things I must do

I know what I must do I know who I am I the persen that I must be.

Some Christmas Posts Worth Reading

This is Getting Ridiculous...

So, I really can't believe that I've been absent for nearly AAAAALLLLLLL of December. No finishing up with political commentary. No poetry. As you can imagine, I have had other things to do.

So, here I am, wishing you all a Merry Christmas. I hope that you have loved ones near. I hope that you feel the joy and peace that come from celebrating the true reason for this season. I hope you are well and healthy.

I'd say that I'll be back next week with my yearly wrap up and book review, but with my current track-record I'm not going to make any promises. We'll just see.

Love and hugs to you and yours.

The Wow's In the Book by Kaitybean

So, for this postdated poetry Tuesday, I'm going to post a poem my Kaitybean wrote for her school's reflections contest. She won first place! Yay, Kaitybean!


The Wow's In The Book
by Kaitybean

When you take a good look in a book,
marvelous wonders behold!
A stroll with the cat, the bear, or the crook,
there’s no end to chance, when you’re in a book!

You can soar through the sky, to the moon,
romp where the elephants roam!
You’re swinging with monkeys, and soon,
you’ll have a big show with baboons!

Just open right up and look inside,
you’ll never want to go back!
Through many adventures you travel wide
on phrases of fun -- a wonderous ride!

Your choices are never ending:
fantasy, nonfiction, or mysteries!
Through your mind questions are racing!
Your “wow’s” are only beginning!
