She was beautifully out of place. Sometimes I believe she intended to be. Like the moon in the sky during the day.

Hi I'm Jeni. I go by JLM (jeni/luna/Moonchild) as my real name is jeni, my muse is Luna and Moonchild is what all of my good friends call me. I've been absent from this site for about seven years. My 23-year old son, Mickey, died from a heroin overdose on January 8, 2015. (When I was last active on this site, Mickey was about sixteen years old).

As you can imagine, the shock to our family from the sudden death of our son/grandson/brother/nephew/friend was tremendous and traumatic. We knew Mickey was an addict and he had tried to get clean time and time again. He loved the programs of Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous, he even stayed clean for an entire year once. His passion was helping other addicts get clean. He helped many, many people and had many friends. He just couldn't stay away from heroin himself. He likened her to a lover that always would pull him back, no matter how long he had been gone. At his memorial service over 200 of his friends attended, each making sure to tell us how much Mickey had been loved and respected for his ability to work with other addicts.

It's been two years now but it still seems like yesterday.

This page will be dedicated to my son, John Martin McKernan IV (Mickey) and every poem written will be in his memory. A candle will burn continuously here in my profile for my son's memory. I want people to know that he lived.

Since that time, the Moonchild has had severe writer's block. My muse, Luna (the name under which I write) has just recently been sneaking back into my life.

I just want to use the gift of creativity that the Universe has given me. I'd like to perhaps give someone's day a lift, and in that way giving a gift back to the Creator.

Thanks for visiting! I'm finding the site as crammed with awesome folk as it was when I left. I hope to get to know many more of you...

I cried but I know that you are with your baby now and at peace becuase you are one of the most kind and gentle people I know and I know you are in heaven, whatever heaven is, with yuor son, Mikey.

Luna: I'm sick to my stomach. Literally ill. I was just watching the news. I feel as an American it is my obligation to stay informed. This sickened me, it's happening. They are detaining people at airports, no word of where they are being held, how they are being treated, are they being made comfortable, no word to the families, a Federal Judge's Order being disregarded.

Civil Rights lawyers are on it. At least I can hope they make some headway. There's two demonstrations planned for tomorrow.

I think, as a concerned citizen, I not only need to start a letter writing campaign but organize a demonstration here in Philly. I just can't sit around and do nothing but talk about this anymore.

I'm sick.

    Ideasaregems-Dawn: I am with you, Jeni - as a Canadian. And I am in tears this morning. A mosque in our beautiful Quebec City was attacked last night by armed gunmen. Six dead, eight seriously injured.

    Gloria ....: We'd love to have you join us for the poetry potlatch if you are interested, Luna. Just go to the forum and find the Challenges topic. Click on it and you will find all the discussions. Feel free to give me a shout if you need any help finding us. :))
    January 31, 2017 at 2:44AM
    Luna: I was going to join this week, Gloria, however I understand that it is temporarily on hold until a new facilitator can be found. Keep me posted, would you?
    February 1, 2017 at 5:13AM
    Luna: Dawn, I'm sorry that terrorism has hit your Country. I always have considered Canada as a peaceful place. You probably feel much like we Americans did on 9/11...prior to that we had this idea that terrorism would not hit our soil...but unfortunately no one is immune. My prayers are with you.

Luna: Dear friends, I need to first apologize for my tardiness in responding to your reviews. I love all of you for paying attention to what I write and leaving me feedback.

Unfortunately at this time I have 186 reviews, and I don't think I'm going to be able to answer them. We're getting our entire home painted on the inside the week of January 3, and I must now deal with Christmas and then de-knicknack and de-picture the walls for the painter.

Please accept this blanket thank you from me, friends, and I will try to answer my reviews much more promptly in the future.

Happy holidays to you all!
December 17, 2016 at 12:35PM
    DR DIP: wow i would love a twentieth of that amount of reviews that's awesome
    make sure they do a good job cutting in! lol
    Merry Xmas Luna

    Gypsy Blue Rose: Happy Holidays Luna. Don't worry about reviews. Take good care of yourself, that is what matters. :)

    Carolyn 'Deaton' Stephens: Welcome back to FS. It is a great outlet for many of our emotions and memories. I read your profile and while I have not experienced the loss that you have, Mickeys story is a familiar one. Heroin is, they say, the most difficult of all drugs to stay away from. I will look forward to your writings. :-) Carolyn

    DR DIP: Clapton's Layla? best guitar riff ever to the start of a song

    November 30, 2016 at 1:04AM
    Luna: Justin, I love CSNY - I saw a concert live and then one on youtube that was the bomb. Deep purple - awesome, The Who - brings back good memories
    Robert Johnson - oh yes

    Do you or does anyone know of the Dandy Warhols? They're one of my favorites. Also Janis Joplin, Jack White, Van Morrison, and how can I forget to mention Clapton, who is def number one on my list!
    November 30, 2016 at 9:56AM
    Luna: Dip, clapton and jj cale are up there as number one and number two. I think one of my favorites is sweet home chicago!
    November 30, 2016 at 9:58AM
    F. Wehr3: Love the Dandy Warhols! I have their album "Thirteen tales from urban bohemia." It's very different from some of the other artists you've listed. Janis Joplin and Van Morrison are also top notch.

    "Could you find me?
    Would you kiss-a my eyes?
    To lay me down
    In silence easy
    To be born again."
    November 30, 2016 at 1:42PM
    Ideasaregems-Dawn: I am so sorry for your loss, Jeni. These candles are to symbolize the love your Mickey inspired - a bright light he shared with others, his extinguished too soon. God grant you the comfort of knowing it lives on in the hearts of the ones he helped...
