I know we are well past Valentine's Day weekend, but I have carried my grandmother Rosa's love story in my back pocket since I began collecting stories to tell. I consider that I'm either late for this year or early for the next, but some love stories never get old, and this may be the … Continue reading My Romantic Grandmothers
So, I've been trying to get back to writing and posting regularly —kind of an unofficial New Year's resolution. When my family headed back home, I started to reorganize the house as well as my approach to writing. It was right then that January 6th happened. All these months, while I've been home, I tried … Continue reading Whatever is True, Whatever is Noble, Whatever is Right
Discover Prompts Day 5: Dish Usually, on a Sunday, I prepare meals and “healthy” snacks for the week. I work part-time a few towns away, and during the tourist season in SW Florida, the commute at peak hours is a nightmare. On days that I have to work, I like to make sure I … Continue reading Dishing it Out
Discover Prompt #4 – Street The street where I live is actually a Circle. They tell me it’s about one mile all the way around. My furry Baby Girl and I walk half the length a few times a day.

Some people have told me I’m funny as in amusing, but also as … Continue reading A joke prompt to start off the month on April Fool’s Day!
I’m trying to figure out where I want to go with this blog. Is the “About” page still accurate? Are my goals the same? Is my motivation the same? Who I’m writing for? Maybe I don’t want to be censored anymore.
I wrote this story sometime last year in response to a prompt about a map and the best trip we ever had. On occasion, I pull it out and tweak it a little. With protests occurring all over the world in support of the people of Puerto Rico, I decided to share it again. “I … Continue reading Puerto Rico In my Heart
I'm late in posting for Father's Day. This is always one of my go-to happy memories. This is the original essay which was my tribute for Father’s Day a few years ago. I condensed it for an assignment last week. Please enjoy this version too. “I love the summer rain!” I shouted in my head … Continue reading I love the Summer Rain
