Writing of peace and renewal, especially in nature, has been such a wonderful blessing to me. I try to share snapshots of time, and feelings as I think of nature and peace. I love writing so thank you so much for reading!
Right now in life I’m happy. That also helps me when I’m writing. Yes, we have struggles, some big and some little, but we not only get by, we can do well internally through the storms. That’s not always easy!
I now post 3 new posts each week, and sometimes a previous post, especially if the blog is slow for that day. I had an English professor once that said 90% of life is just showing up. That’s sort of true, especially in blogging. The more I’m here, the better the blog does.
My post entitled, “I’d Rather Have a Cup of Coffee” was different wasn’t it? That’s more of how I write now. I’m actually a fiction writer dressed up as a poet. And yes I was expecting some readers to not like it. Oh well! I’m too old to worry about that now.
I say/write what I feel strongly about.
I still see no need to retire, do you know why? I have found that I still have something to say. I find that amazing and beautiful!
Thank you again for being here. Have a wonderful spring!

Thank you! Yes, we get to an age where we have come to peace within ourselves and the world as it is. I liked you Cup of Coffee blog, as I too feel that marginalized people need a voice. Sometimes we just have to be the ones who say it for them. Thank you for doing that too.
Thank you Deryn for your wonderful comments and encouragement! Speaking from our hearts is so important. Peace and wonderful blessings to you.
Authenticity is the one thing we need to hear more of these days. You keep speaking/writing and we’ll keep listening/reading.
Thank you Pam! Your comments are so encouraging. Peace my friend and wonderful blessings to you.
It makes me know you write and you are happy about that and when someone reads we still be happy, that’s so true about we writers.
Yes it’s so true that our presence in the blog is so true.
Actually I was off for two years due to various reasons and most of my ardent readers are gone, I am now trying get them back.
Wishing you the Pleasure of Writing

My pleasure💕. And peace and blessings to you also Rivers Renewed💕
And you can call me Nico! Rivers is just the site title. Peace.
I agree with your English professor!!! and loved the Cup of Coffee post. I am a poet masquerading as a fiction writer with a mystery coming out next week. That’s different.
Wonderful! I look forward to reading it. And thank you for your beautiful comments. Peace and wonderful blessings to you.
I am also a fiction writer dressed up as a poet. I am also at an age where i don’t worry about other people’s thoughts. I find it liberating.
Yes, it is liberating! Thank you Molly! Peace and wonderful blessings to you all.
