See You Again

When you said,
“One day, I’ll see
you again,”
I didn’t know it
would be this long.

Also, I updated the My Books section of my site.
Have a look and let me know what you think.

  1. Your short snappers say so much. When I read them I “listen” to the feelings they engender. Amazing. Read them in the morning, they say one thing; read them in the evening, they say another. Perhaps they should be put into a book, perhaps with little hand-drawn illustrations to go along. (PS: halfway through “Home” – fascinating piece of work.)

    1. Ah, that’s amazing, Sha’Tara. Thank you! I’m so happy you are enjoying the books (I’m assuming you read Just Breathe and Focus already?)

      Thank you for the kind words about my little poems. I do try to pack as much emotion as possible into them, while still leaving them open enough for the reader to insert their own interpretations.

      I wish I could draw well enough to make little illustrations, but it is a lovely idea. I’m working on a chapbook right now, actually, but I wasn’t planning on adding anything but the poetry. I am designing Tarot cards for a short story anthology I’m working on that involve some drawing. I’ll have to see what I come up with for the next chapbook. 😊

      1. As a “geometry freak” drawing to me means just filling space with spheres, triangles, interconnected lines in endless combinations. Basically what I “see” along with your poems would be such Euclidean forms on a page, usually with the poem on the inside. Problem with that, obviously, is that Euclidean geometry isn’t about feelings… so that wouldn’t work – forget it. You’d need sketches of heart shapes, clouds, flowers, tree silhouettes, cute animal silhouettes (I also love silhouettes!) Oh, just thinking with my fingers here. No, I haven’t read the other novels yet – I also usually read series backwards – well most of my life is backward anyway, I’ve accepted that now. When I first encountered traffic lights (none where I grew up, that came later) I had to literally pull over at the side of the highway (in Prince George, B.C – still vividly remember that!) so I could figure out how to proceed through the very first ones I saw. I’d passed the written test, no problem – that was an intellectual enterprise – but the real life thing, that was a shocker. Red or green? Which was which? Go or stop? So I just matched the moving traffic with the changing lights, figured out which said “go” and which, “stop” and except for rare exceptions later, and even today, I can tell which is which. I must, I just retired from 42 years of professional driving at Coca Cola and no accident, ever! Being backward makes one cautious, I think, and that can be a good thing. I know I’ll enjoy your other novels in backward order. The characters whom I’ve now “re-invented” to fit “Home” will come to life in another way. No problem!

      2. Well, that’s wonderful. I’m happy you’re enjoying it. I wrote them in hopes that anyone could read them in any order and know what was happening. I really appreciate that. And congratulations on never having an accident!

      1. Yes – and it looks great! I’ve seen some chaotic blogs/pages out there… and being a bit of a designer, it pains me! I almost want to contact them and say, ‘hey, can I help you with that??’ But I think that would probably sound completely offensive! 😀

      2. Oh, I definitely understand. It’s taken me a little while to get this site right. I think I have a good balance now. 😊 If things change may I ask for your feedback or suggestions? 😆😆

      3. Absolutely! I would love to help any way I can. I swear I started those weekly perk posts because I wanted to create a new coffee logo every other week. And I always want to redesign my blog so I can make more graphics! 😀
