Fandango’s Friday Flashback — August 21

I am almost at the one year anniversary of my blog! Maybe one more month and I can actually go back to the specific date and repost.

For now I will look for something, maybe on the 21st of another month.

For Michael at mindlovemisery’smenagerie:


My thoughts on books…

I wrote four and published them for children.

I love to read, or used to love it, and hoping that with the new book I won last week that I regain my love. I never lost it, just lost the motivation to sit and read and concentrate on what I was reading. I think the concentration is key. Not that it has to be for intellectual knowledge, but just so I don’t have to reread the same page over and over…

I just got a story published in two magazines!

I write every day and hope to have more books published! Non-fiction and fiction for children.


White pages yellowing 

Hard covers softening 

Words melding together 






Bright laminated pages 

Bright white screen 

Technology doesn’t print 

Less to hold 

But for some 

Holding a book is part of the 






In bed 

At the beach 

In the yard 



Bound like pages in a book

  1. Yes! The feel of a book in your hands can’t compare to a kindle or other e-reader! I must be able to turn the page, feel the edge of the paper, savor the words without the eye strain of technology! Your poem captured it beautifully!
