elizabeth



such a popular name
a strong name 
the name of the first female ruler of the western world
she is an only child
but she feels very missed
her thoughts are overcome with darkness
and emptiness.
and abandoned 
it's no wonder
the dark is so appealing
she likes charles bukowski
she is so sweet and so helpful
but she gives too much of herself
and she is allured by melancholy.
i ask her to take my hand
notice us
we don't want you to stay in the dark
realize you are not alone
let go of past hurts.
let the dead bury the dead
i write a poetry for her 
but i have struggled also as she has
truth is, there's an "elizabeth" in all of us.
we all need each other
we all need to not take another for granted
we all struggle with the dark's beckoning 
and we all have to choose daily whether to heed its call or not.

Yesterday, daylight savings time started. Zoey asked her dad to stay with us one more day and he granted it.

My dream before I woke up this morning consisted of Eddard that would change into Philip (my youngest brother, my brain has always done this). My dad that really looked more like Ed (my ex) and a girlfriend. We were touring Europe and I was cognizant that this is the third time I've been there.

In my dream I was recalling the last time I was in Europe where I saw a cruise/show ship just like they do in Disneyworld for Fantasmic (somewhere in Paris and in the daytime, Fantasmic is a show they do on water and only at night). This time we were in a strip mall or indoor mall like a flea market.

We stopped at a restaurant that let its customers eat o…

Getting Motivated to Write

This is from Bryan Collins and he's from Ireland. He has a blog called, "Become A Writer Today."

I haven't blogged on here since the end NaNoWriMo. I have taken the pledge to edit my rough draft.

I've been very busy this month because my husband had his third open heart surgery.

I wanted to list this here so I can review it if I need to--



Here are five ways you can get motivated to write:  1. Associate ONE Place With Writing Irish novelist, John Banville gets up early every morning leaves his house and travels to an apartment in Dublin city where he spends the day working on his novels. He says: “I live in Dublin, God knows why. There are greatly more congenial places I could have settled in – Italy, France, Manhattan – but I like the climate here, and Irish light seems to be essential for me and for my writing.” You might not be able to afford an apartment solely for writing – and I agree with John about the weather – but you could carve out a quiet space in yo…
