I "met" with the most lovely group of women this afternoon. The Book Club of Ormond Beach, Florida had read Womankind and one member, a nurse practitioner who coincidentally went to the same nursing school I did, invited me to join them for the discussion. Oh the wonders of the Internet! Thanks ladies! It was most enjoyable!

Make it a great evening!

Baby Monk

Posted by Picasa

Baby Monk
Baby monk with almond eyes,
Do you miss your mother?
Sent so young, so far away,
called to live with others.

Baby Monk with cherry cheeks
Worn rough by air-thin mountain
Family chosen at age three,
blessed yak butter flowing fountain.

Baby monk in crimson drape,
street begging is your earning.
Sandaled feet trudge ancient streets,
prayer wheel clockwise turning.

Baby monk your quiet smile
touches me like no other.
Baby boy with almond eyes,
do you miss your mother?

Book Club From My Treehouse

I'm looking forward to chatting with a group of women in Florida tomorrow.Isn't this an amazing world that we live in - one where you can sit in your tree house in SE Iowa and be part of a Book Club in Florida, or anywhere for that matter! I look forward to it.

I haven't been writing for a long time now, but am starting to think it's time to get back to it. I've been the ear for so many women, so many stories. It's time to stop being lazy. It's time to be their voice.

Make it great day!
