Q is for Quotes

Since I was, maybe thirteen, I have collected quotes.  First, and for a long time, in scrapbooks, cutting things out of magazines and pasted them, along with pictures or my own words. I covered pages and pages. I have always surrounded myself with the words of others. Words that inspire, words that make me think,... Continue Reading →

P is for Patricia Sands

I don't remember how I connected with Patricia. Did I read her first book and then go looking for her? Who is this woman, I wondered, who writes so delightfully? I soon discovered that not only does she write interesting stories about characters that sound like someone I might meet and whose company I would... Continue Reading →

O is for Einstein

Whenever I'm asked, "If you had a chance to spend a day with a famous person, who would you choose?", my answer is immediate: "Albert Einstein."  What an amazing mind he had, people say. And they are right.  Only a genius could have conceived of and explained this: I always think, what an amazing human... Continue Reading →

N is for Henri J.M. Nouwen

I have read Mr Nouwen's words, on and off, hither and thither throughout the course of my life.  I have agreed and disagreed with his understanding, his experience of God. Really, how does one, how dare one, disagree with someone's experience? And yet, it is something we do, all the time, especially when it comes... Continue Reading →

Maybe it's because people want to sound more polite, more formal or maybe they are just... Continue Reading →

L is for L.T. Marshall

Note: I'm a great believer in doing things in a way that makes sense to me. I've blogged for many years. I post on my blog in the evening. Well, except for this month of April when the push has been on to get the post done and announce the link in various places each... Continue Reading →

L is for laudable

I am a huge fan of WordPress for their ease of creating a new blog, having it look the way you like and also for how easy and quick it is for readers to comment. You would think doing the A to Z Challenge would be difficult.  How to find 26 writers to feature?  The... Continue Reading →

J is for Judith Baxter

One of the first things I checked on, when moving down to Ecuador, was the distance between Cuenca and Wellington. New Zealand, that is.  Those of you who know where this is going, can stop laughing. Right now! My friend Judith lives there and, in my geographically challenged mind, I just knew that it would... Continue Reading →
