Now, with my children all grown up, I am free to enjoy single-blessedness and my poetry to the hilt. Coming from two opposite worlds, the academe and the political arena, serving these two sectors for more than seventeen years, I have seen things where I draw those flashes of inspiration to create. Free verse and short verses excite me.
Do your best and God will do the rest.

nassus1957: My new profile picture was taken last December 18, 2017, about two months ago, when I arrived here in Las Vegas as a legal US immigrant. This was a photo taken by my daughter in her house, while I am getting familiar with her cute dog, Chewee.

    nassus1957: I didn't expect this, thanks to all those who voted for this piece. I have been absent for along time, almost ten months. The good news is, I am now here in the US, just arrived as a legal immigrant, last December 18, 2017 (IR 5 category) as a parent of an American citizen, reunited with my daughter who has been working here as an oncology nurse for more than ten years.

nassus1957: Being a FanStory member is like discovering a new family, it is one of the greatest thing that ever happened to me. I am discovering a whole new me, a mother falling in love with writing. There was a another Poets group who helped me in my first crude walk but FanStory nurtured it.

    Evelyn Fort Stewart: Honey, what comes from the heart and is written with hopes of making someone's life easier or better is worth more than money. I'm 86 years old with a 7th grade education and Have been told all my life I couldn't write. But, God said I could and He helped me get my big in print, Behind Closed Doors on It took ten years and I shed a river of tears but never is a long time. It did happen. God loves you and so do I.

    nassus1957: Thanks Evelyn, I do have a collection of poetry that I really want to be published, but I am a stupid net user, I know nothing about e-publishing, and navigating can be very tricky. I remember the first time I got hold of this mechanical thing they called mouse, I just cannot control it, for it keeps on travelling outside the laptop screen and when I click on a particular box, I can't hit the target, it is either at the outskirts of the box, below, on top, but never at the center where the hand is supposed to be there. This mechanical thing, that looks more like a bug and lives only with the click of a finger is much wilier than the real mouse, which I can catch better in one swoop, rather than this computer mouse. But after six months LOL, I have subdued at last this net mouse, and we are getting close to be friends. Yay, after all those blunders and idiotic errors, stupid me. but in time I know I will be used to this my friend. Thanks again Evelyn, God bless.

    A.A.A.EXHILARATING RIDE: Hi! It is just lovely to connect to your site and feel such an affinity to you and those who share your journey. How blessed we are! I think for me a major gift of FanStory is not so much the discovery of me, but feedback on the colour and thoughts as I daily unfold new petals and embrace new possibilities. So, exciting, a daily journey of God gifted global wonder, sharing, connecting, growing and caring. Thank you for being the special inspiration for this Sunday, blessings Maureen*&* And I'm sorry, I believe I wrote nassis rather than nassus in my excitement of replying to a new reviewer!
