My Number One Blogging Secret

20191019_103718

Well it’s not really a secret, but my number 1 blogging tip is simply, invest in other people, other blogger’s posts.

By investing I mean reading the posts in our readers. I do often leave comments too, simply to encourage others, the way I’ve been encouraged over the years.

That’s really what blogging is about. We share our work with each other and encourage each other. I so wish I could follow more of you!

Those that I do follow, your work is amazing! Thank you for being who you are, and for being part of my blogging experience.

Thank you for reading!

In the Space Between

20170531_193842

In the space between light and darkness,

as the dawn begins breaking,

there are times we don’t feel the privilege of a new day,

and we still smell the smoke,

or taste the cinder ash

of our dying hearts,

may we always remember

may we hold onto that light

that promises a new day,

always.

      

Note: This is about overcoming sadness.

Standing Tall in the Wind

20180130_161313

As I stand on top of the mountain,

where the pine trees face the wind,

two hawks soar

banking in my direction,

carrying strength in their wings

so that I can stand tall in the wind now,

encouragement fills me,

so I say, “Thank you my brothers.”

while sunlight dances

on the river.
