Posted on Tue, 08 Mar 2022

This sounds like a place I would love to visit. I love nature especially on a blustery day; it does make you feel alive, the winds, warm or chilled, have a way of stirring the soul. I loved this poem and the place it took me to. Thank you for...

Posted on Fri, 18 Mar 2022

You have a human voice in your writing: it stings, it cajoles it pains. This is written with such clarity and emotion and will resonate with anyone who has had circumstances such as these with a parent. Excellent story!

Posted on Wed, 12 Jan 2022

I remember that specific cartoon and it was hysterically funny. Of course, I am taking a childhood point of view here but your literal dissecting was apropos. WB bugs bunny and daffy duck cartoons were outrageously irreverent and constantly broke...

I hear the love for the animals throughout your story and I have to say, didn’t see the ending coming that you’d find your best friend. I love dogs, well truth is, I love all animals, but dogs have been the major best friends in my life. I lost...
