I’m back…

Featured

I think, it must be 7 years, since I started my blog. I went away for awhile, then a day would pass, a week and a month and years… In 2019, I went on to my WordPress and inserted the title, ”I’m back.” That is all I did, no story or picture, just a title. Then I hit save and figured, I would type something, the next evening.

Well, here I am on WordPress at midnight, on April 4, 2022. Some would say, I am “fashionably late.” 😊 I say, “Let the games begin!” Lol. I have always, wanted to say that… and I did! I just remembered something, it is not good for me, to type late at night. Let’s see how this goes… Okay, once upon a time…

No, seriously, there are people on this site, that I have thought of through the years. Their stories and wonderful work of arts, that have made me smile, laugh and at times, shed a tear. I wonder about the young man who was publishing his science fiction book and the guy that worked at half-price books. The guy in Maine, who would run in the snow and liked to drink Snapple.

The cartoonist in France, drawing comics. The lady who writes the mystery books and the other lady, creating cool art and writing science fiction stories. The lady with the golden retrievers and the lady, who got married and had to move to Italy, trying to get use to no ice and wearing scarfs on your neck. The young lady writer, who is blind and sharing her experiences.

People talking about their personal experiences with family issues, work issues, dating, long distance romance and talking about their mental health issues. There have been many, wonderful photographers and travelers, with entertaining stories to tell. I remember a woman named Bobbie and some famous women who worked years ago, in New York, for top publishing firms.

I love to read articles, from the video gamers and foodies. I even, read the stories, from the writers who talk about religions and politics. Well, I think, I remembered everyone. I wonder, who will be able to tell, that I was talking about them. If you know, that I mentioned you, come on by and say, ”hello.” Well, until we meet again… 😊 Goodnight Zzzzzz

This is one of my digital art works, I will be sharing more soon.

The Old Man and the Blackbird 



The blackbird sits by the window.

Waiting for his friend to rise.

The old man wakes up and walks slowly to the window.

He opens it just slightly to let his friend in.

“How are you feeling,” the blackbird asks.

“Tired, but fine my friend,” the old man replies.

The blackbird shakes his feathers and looks the old man up and down.

“You haven’t been eating much, have you,” says the blackbird.

The old man answers, “just a little here and there.”

“You have to keep your strength up, so you can enjoy this beautiful day,” the blackbird replies.

“I really don’t feel like going outside.  I feel tired today. It’s been a long week.  I can’t stop thinking of Martha.”

“Martha will always be with you my friend.  I promised her, I would watch over you.”

The old man stops for a moment to think, then answers, “I remember when I found you under the tree, you were so small.  I brought you home and Martha made you a tiny bed.  As you got older, you would go outside, but always come back.”

The blackbird replied, “you and Martha will always be my family.  Now it’s time to take care of you.”

“What will happen when my time comes, my friend, where will you go?”

“I will still be with you, just like Martha.  You need not worry.  Now, please eat something.”

So, the old man sat down at the table, took a sip of wine and sliced some bread. He tore a piece of bread, to give to his friend.  That night the old man celebrated with a plate of sausage and cheese.

His mind was now at ease, knowing the blackbird was indeed a true friend.
