a sample of my poetry.

On My Wedding Eve.

Sunset washing the horizon in the color tones of fall

The fiery ball drops silently and without a splash into the sea

A green blue never ending ripple scape, quickly turning black

In the twilights gentle drop.

I gaze longingly across your depth your oily impenetrableness

Towards a ship that never leaves that will never take me home.

The living tomb that brought me here.

An evil, fetid, stinking, rotting, carcass, her dying belly… Continue

From Fat Girl to Dandy

Yes, I made the Boston Cream Pie. It wasn't pretty, but it tasted good.

Of course, saying that about a cake is akin to saying, "She doesn't sweat much for a fat girl."

On the other hand, one party-goer -- Pat, who doesn't normally eat dessert (shown on the far right)--

asked for a second helping. And scraped her plate. Unfortunately, she did not lick it, because that would… Continue

Not sure what I want to do here yet.

I may post some stories or poems.

I spend too much time on blogit and not enough time on my creative writing as it is so we shall see.

And why did I post a picture of myself with a snake?

I love almost all creatures great and small. This was a wild snake that I caught for a cuddle and rerelease. When I left Australia I had to leave behind a very special snake. I found her a wonderful home but the good goodbye really hurt.

But I love all of nature and I love the man I… Continue

Feminism and Sex Economics

Feminism and Sex Economics

Blog by Althea Tremaine

*This blog is intended for humorous purposes only. It does not reflect the views and opinions of the writer or her associates… at least, not literally.

You see it everywhere you look—The Man, The Big Cheese, The King—it seems as if in all our years, we females have not yet achieved what our masculine counterparts have achieved. Men seem to be in high places, and as soon as a woman… Continue

Blogging and Boston Creaming

The concept of blogging has always seemed a bit narcissistic to me.... as if someone actually wants to follow me around and read my daily thoughts and activities.

Admittedly delightful, though... for as a child

I dreamed of a fame so great -- and technology so vast -- that after my rise to stardom, my future fans and devotees would be able to map out my every prior move, every thought. Where did I get such… Continue

A lively essay on the demands and rewards of the freelance life.

The Rains Must Fall

The sky in my small corner of the world seemed to understand me this day, even to sympathize. It dawned as a bright and glorious sunny day then changed its mood to suit my own. As the sun made its escape, the mottled gray and white clouds took position above. A cool rain began to fall. I enjoy the smell of fresh fallen rain and walked out into the mist to breath deeply as it newly baptized the earth with its sweet cleansing scent.

I glanced up and was overcome by the moment. Mother… Continue

Passive income for the freelance writer?

Should freelancers try to make some passive income? I've always felt that writers are the most resourceful people on the most resourceful medium in history. It takes time and patience and, as the article points out, the Achilles heal of the writing class is a complete aversion to selling and marketing. So the question becomes, "is there enough incentive to get writers…

A little poetry while I organize myself...


To each his own and to own his each.

Live and learn, aid and teach.

Be that unique in thought and deed.

As to inspire when there be need.

Smell the rose and taste the air.

Of all around take time to care.

Be true and sure and honest still.

Strength in character and will.

Share kindness in a smile or two.

Sleep well at night as dreamers do.

Have faith in friends, one and all.

Be one depended on… Continue

A pinch of cynical, a dash of optimism and just a tad of sweet....

Hello everybody!!!

I know this is a site to utilize for professional leads and such, but I wanted my first intro to the fellow writers here to have a flavor of me, as a person...A big fat no no in the pro sense of this medium, but I think when others read my serious to light ramblings, it serves well to know the woman behind them. So, without further adieu...

Hitchhiking through the cyber waves I came across this little gem of a site.....So, I guess this is where I give… Continue
