Contrast of Dawn and Sunset #photography #poetry

poetry penned in moon dust

behold the dawn

where the earth 

unveils color as she

dances for the warming rays

embrace the night

shadowy covering

last tendrils of color

extinguished is day

The wordpress weekly photo challenge was Saturated. When I thin of saturated I think of the way that color absorbs light.  Dawn and Sunset seemed the two times of day when color saturates our earth.

I need your help

Cristian Mihai

There’s always a time of the month when I contemplate the idea of abandoning my dream of becoming a full time writer. It’s a time of the month when I think that I’m just pretending to be a writer, and that I’m not really good enough, and that I should simply give up.

A couple years ago, before I started this blog, one of my uncles asked me about my writing. Back then I was uploading stories on Wattpad, and I was having a lot of fun. So I told him that I had talked with a girl from Etiopia, who said that she really enjoyed my stories. So much that she cried.

And, well, he asked me about money. Was I earning enough?

In fact, I wasn’t making money at all. And I told him that, and I told him that when a stranger genuinely appreciates your art, that’s…

Friday Reads: The Amber Ring by A.L. Walton

Cristian Mihai

Amber Ring Cover (Front)Every Friday I’ll try to review a self-published book. Something that’s really worth reading, something of great quality in terms of style, technique, or just narrative.

Today I’m going to review The Amber Ring, by A.L. Walton, whom some of you know as Piscis.

I’m not much of a book reviewer, so I’m going to share with you the exact quote that kind of tells you what this novella is all about:

What were the thrills of love and excitement when they came burdened with anguish and heartache?   Given the option, would anyone truly choose to feel when it was so much easier, so much safer, so much less painful, to forsake sentiment altogether?

If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.

Crazy Train To Tinky Town

Blogging friends I need your help! I was chatting online during the week with one of my blogging friends Pleun over at La Vida Loca about how I hope to participate in the forthcoming Twitter event #pitchmad in the first week of September. I said that I was feeling particularly uninspired after my illness and she suggested that I recruit your advice as I have done on so many occasions.

As most of you know I am totally pants at Twitter but have been improving gradually with the help of two of my Twitter buddies, Megan at Cowboys and Crossbones and Rebecca at Clanmother (who’s well-timed quotes always manage to raise my spirits even on the bluest days).

The idea is that in 140 characters to include #pitchmad, I pitch a book idea to any literary agents that will be participating in the event. I was thinking that maybe just…

DeDe: It’s Your Uniqueness That Makes You Beautiful!

Rumpydog

Oh Dog! DeDe here with another tip to make you look and feel your best!

This week’s tip: Your true beauty comes from your unique self. 

Each human has his or her unique talents, traits, and quirks.

So why do they try so hard to all look and act alike?

They want to be fashionable, so they all wear the same clothes.

They want to be beautiful, so they have surgery to alter their body.

They use the same slang to look cool.

Here’s a secret us dogs know: These folks are trying to be someone besides themselves. And that means they’re not happy with who and what they are.

That face lift or boob job might get you more attention, but does it really make you beautiful?

Truth is, beauty is subjective. To be sure, most people have similar ideas of beauty, but that’s because that’s what they were…
