Hello Everyone,

October 2015

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.

It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.

It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.

It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.

Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.

May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.

I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.

Inspiration me...Who are those whispers

Years ago I went through a horrific time.  Someone close had not only torn my belief in others but in myself.  I wrote a poem (Who are those whispers that I hear) and won a contest.  The irony was a bit much - winning cash for misery.

I find myself torn by many and yet still not as torn as when I wrote that poem.  Hopefully this one will not be in the same depth, for it is with my writing that I speak my confessions...

Who are those whispers

Who are those whispers that I hear
bringing forth a dark fear
Chanting woes of those close
causing such tremendous throes

Stop those words of malice and deceit
my faith in them knows no retreat
Whisper not the warnings hushed
leave me now for I am crushed

Who are those whispers that I hear
let not my love for them die here
Sing not of their unloving ways
for my hearts song will always pray
