If you were… #children #fiction

If you were a butterfly would you be friends with a lion??? I didn’t think so. Personally,I wouldn’t either.  We know a lion who saved a butterfly while she was still in her chrysalis and she saw something about him that others didn’t. Now this butterfly and (domesticated) lion go about the villages of Uganda […]

I just read a blog where a writer used reverse psychology to get her children to read. I’m up for whatever it takes to excite a child’s mind. Imagination is an amazing tool. Just ask any artist or writer. The best gift for children this Christmas??? Books!!!!   Paddy the Panda is a story about […]

The Golden Key #fantasy #postaday #fiction

I was a golden key fashioned just after time was turned and I knew I had a purpose  but forgot all I had learned.  I placed myself in large  hands of those who perchance might  serve but one after another got what they deserved. And so I hung despondent  on a cold and lifeless  tree […]

Moon Beast #halloween #shortstory #children’sfiction #amwriting

“It was long ago when the world was young.The Moon some say was bright and full once or twice a year but then she would be gone for weeks at a time.” My grandmother said with a quiet, serious voice. I closed my eyes. Grandmother told great stories. “There were fewer people, no one to […]

The Girl With Many Kindnesses #atozchallenge #life’slessons #photography #fantasy

One day a little girl was sent on an errand for her mama. “The road will be long but you will be safe as long as you extend kindness along the path.” “Of course, mama,” the girl smiled knowing this would not be a difficult task. In her head she recited the things she needed […]

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
