At the suggestion of others, I began to write, and I'm now trying to learn what others see in me.

My writing is raw and comes from my heart. It reflects daily life. I am a keen observer of people and sometimes I know them better then they know themselves. So beware, I may be writing about you at this very moment.

FanStory is my happy place. I enjoy reading poetry that is open to interpretation. I particularly like romance poetry or any writing that is based on truth and/or the hills and valleys of life.

Till we meet in print ... I'll be waiting for you. LateBloomer

    flylikeaneagle: People are running to the grocery store with word of more snow and wind. Yes, may be a blizzard and then more snow. The lion of March is roaring. I know there will be spring soon. The sun is shining brighter here in Minnesota. flylikeaneagle - nancy

    mountainwriter49: Hello Friend,

    I'm just now seeing this in my FS mailbox. It's been a while since I've been here.

    I hope you're well. Things are going OK here. Fresh out of paraesophageal surgery at Duke. Successful.

    I'm working with Ann Brixey and some others on a Japanese short form book of poetry. Also working to get 50 of my best sonnets published.

    how is your writing going?

    Take care, my friend.

LateBloomer: Just heard today ... "All families are embarrassing, and if not, they're dead ~ The Seventies Show" Perhaps, this will help some get through the upcoming Holidays! Lol.

LateBloomer: Thought of the day ...

"The quill is not a feather duster." LateBloomer

... So write, write, write,
and let the dust begin to grow.

LateBloomer: While my muse is off somewhere being amused, I'll leave you this quote:

"The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all compact."
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

And so ... when my muse returns, will a lunatic, lover, or poet appear? My next writing shall tell.

    Lovinia: I'm a lunatic, lover and poet .... will I do? LOL
    I guess NOT what you're looking for?

    The sippy straw and chocolates will appear for sure ... with or without your muse. Perhaps mine is away with yours?
    Huge hugs - Lovi xoxo

    Dean Kuch: I think I saw your muse playing with my muse out behind the barn, Bloomer.
    That doesn't bode well for your muse, I'm afraid.
