your favourite of my fiction (poetry)

Each month I post a piece of writing on this blog. The piece I post is choosen by you.
How does this work? you ask.
Well, what you do is this
1) You log on to my Author's Den web site: http://www.authorsden.com/visit/author.asp?authorid=73154
2) You click on the piece you would like to read
The site automatically calculates the number of hits each piece receives. The piece which receives the most hits is the piece that is featured.
This month you choose: Avalon


A golden ray kisses
The cheek of an angel

An angel whispers to a morning dove
“Awake my child and sing.”

A morning dove’s song
Awakens a fare maiden.

A fare maiden employees
Her skein and needles to knit
A day begins on Avalon

Last night

Last night was so much fun. If you attended you will know. If you were unable to let me just say that I continue to be impressed by the quality and diversity of creativity that exists on this island. I am proud of be a Mayne Island resident.
It was a pleasure to read my work to such a supportive audience.
And to keep you current regarding my mystery novella: the second chapter has been (and is being) reviewed. Onward and upward to chapter three.
All the best,

I'm off...

Yesterday I delivered my six baby sweaters to a wonderful children's clothing boutique in Sidney, BC. The owner of the boutique was delighted to receive them. Me...me I was thrilled too. More on this in a future post.
Today I'm once again on my merry way to Salt Spring Island. I will be helping to dismantle this years ArtCraft. I plan to stay on Salt Spring Island until Tuesday. I have a dear aunt on the island and this will give us an opportunity to catch up.
I hope to post on Tuesday evening but what with Murphy's Law and all who knows. My computer continues to struggle and I know its only a matter of time but I'm working on a solution.
All the best,

What you can do...

Okay, so enough of this silence. Its nearly driving me crazy. Sure I can (and am) writing. I'm working on my soon to be self-published mystery novella. ...but that's not the same as writing to you. I enjoy writing to you.
So why haven't I been?
Well, because my mighty computer has informed me that it is on its last legs. When the little green light does fade to nothing I will no longer be able to post this blog. I don't know when this will happen. It could be next month, next week, tomorrow or even later today. Your positive thoughts for its continued extended longevity is appreciated.
Please let me assure you that even though my computer is sick this doesn't mean that I or Olavia's hand knitting patterns share it its ailments. We are healthy and happy. You may place orders either by mail or by email. I do have access to another computer. Hubby is generous and supportive. So reaching me shouldn't be a problem.
Please be braced for the inevitable. And if my correspondence does pause you will know why.
All the best

Report from the Bar-b-que

I had a great time at the Bar-b-que. The fish was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful. No one could ask for any thing more.
Today, however, I have encountered a problem that has forced me to take an unexpected holiday. You may not hear from me for a while. For this, I apologize. Please know that I am fine and look forward to writing to you again soon.
All the best
