I knew I was famous!….. why is the cat taking advantage of me? Creepy black thing
Your book plus my cat……..
Alert! must read
I personally think this is a great book for a Christmas gift…. and any time of the year actually,
written by a wonderful writer and human being. Personally I have enjoyed the read very much
and liked the “behind the poem” section since you always learn something that is of use for
your day to day life. And I don’t care how smart you think you are, you will be filled by
a “mysterious mental murmuration” as one line of her poems says.
In Avian Friends, you will find more than forty poems that offer encouragement and uplifting stories. The poems are free rhyme and connect to different life scenarios. Each poem also includes a “behind the poem” section, which provides personal reflections, teaching tidbits, and ideas for wellness. Backyard birds inspired the poems and the topic of faith has been gently woven in (not in a religious way) with the hope that diverse readers can enjoy the content.
The poems in this book are not complicated poems; instead, they are light and can lift the reader’s mood. The poems are for those who do not always read poetry – as well as for the poetry lover.
And if you wonder why birds are used is because the author wrote a journal on her backyard
where it was full of birds, which gave her peace and inspiration. I thought it was brilliant
the use of these Avian friends to create a well written thought out themes around them.

There are three constants in life… change, choice and principles. ~Stephen Covey — A Pondering Mind
I think it´s a great quote although I would put it in reverse (I hope I don’t offend the original blogger who posted it) ,principles which will lead you to the choices you make which will lead you to change. Hope Mr. Covey doesn’t care, obviously not…. he’s gone, not to insult his legacy. If I keep writing I’m making this worst. Great quote! The overall meaning of it is just great, be it to put one word first than the other.
Stephen Covey, 1932 – 2012, Author

Originally posted on Art of Quotation: I believed in a good home, in sane and sound living, in good food, good times, work, faith and hope. I have always believed in these things. It was with some amazement that I realized I was one of the few people in the world who really believed in…
My friend Jack…In my first and only year of University in San Francisco he was my hero.I even went to the bars and the streets he described in his book “On the road”. He did die from alcoholism, maybe I´ll be remembered as a brilliant writer after I die of that, almost did at age 30, so who knows, but a good philosophy of life he wrote. I was being sarcastic about being remembered for my writing for you.. you! people that don’t read my about page that says I have an ironic-sarcastic-dark sense of humor, although the alcohol thing is true. I can relate to this quote too much. Read all the quote on the original blog it was posted!

I´m in the know…so I´ll let you know.
You follow my advice….and your set for life.
-Make a choice, like…just decide!!
-If you are obsessed with security you can´t do nothing.
-Once I start I do not stop.
-Get up and stay up.
-Live for a reason and then there´s a reason to live.
-Breast feeding reduces women´s risk for breast cancer. You know what to do now ladies!
-The truth will set you free…..that´s stupid. The truth will make you see things much better but that other shit about setting you free I doubt. But it does make a good quote I guess.
-Limits like fears are often an illusion….that´s a screwed up quote too. For me is important to know what your limits are, everyone has his or her own limits and fear? Fuck, I know fear real well and fear kept me alive and dandy, sort of dandy but alive. Plus fear in everyday life is good if you channel it the right way, if you see fear as a challenge to overcome. Screw that quote, my rational is much better.
-Your natural talented skills will only be developed by hours and hours of pounding on your craft.
-Why the term “As greedy as a pig”? Well, it all started with an Irish gangster who would kill his enemies. That´s sort of a given really, doesn´t all gangsters kill people they don´t like. Anyways, this guy would chop the body in six parts, two legs, two arms, one head(fuck imagine if there where more)and then the torso left. In order to dispose of the body he would have a pig farm with 16 pigs and he would throw the pieces of the body where the pigs where and in two minutes the pigs would go through every bone of the body. Hence the expression, as greedy as a pig.
-It´s foolish to mourn those who died fighting for freedom, we should thank God they once lived. I´m not very certain of that, I fought and I´m not quite sure if God is liking me all that much. But still is a cool saying.
-Communication often ends up in miscommunication.
-Equal opportunity merchant of death….that sounds bad ass. It´s from the movie Lord of War, go see it.
-No matter what, when, how, every woman can be swept of the feet with the right broom.
-Depth of commitment until death….this one very few people will ever grasp it.
-For every action you must expect a reaction….the trick, measure your action and be prepared for possible scenarios of the reaction.
-Chaos has some order to it…..Read the Chaos Theory !
-Those who say they can and those who say the can´t are usually both right.
-Kansas City Shuffle…..know about this one? I make you look right while I go left and then….then there´s an unexpected reaction on your part and a prepared action had been by me.
Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.
Why I create art? Life.
At age thirty I have returned to walking through a house of hunted ghosts where people have been and now they are not, not to go anyplace, the place is the house where they have become the ghosts of mine the mind of mine in which they reside as if they feel they have the privilege to reside in my mind, they don´t have the privilege to be in here in this mind of mine, in this house of mine, in this heart on mine. They hunt me and that is my destiny the destiny of a hunted mind. Why should I put up with them? I ask myself, but myself is unable or unwilling to answer that question a complicated question that can have a very simple answer which eludes my mind, my thoughts are blurred and un-blurred it´s a grey area in which I have to live. There is no white and black. Life.
Life is my house, it revolves around it it speaks to it. My house. The house where dreams where made and broken were people lived and died, where laughs where mixed with tears, where I was born and educated, where values and principles slipped into every pour of my body.
I look out and have stayed out of the hunted house seeing the green prairie of life as well as the soaked red prairie of war, the privilege of learning and un-learning the seeds that make up the wonderful prairie of life. Is not all war says my ex-soldier soul. I created my life based on what I learned in my house. I return back to my house, it is hunted I can feel it every day I wake up, they are there, I feel them as much as a hammer hitting my soul, my heart, my mind. But it is Life. The Life I chose to live and now I have to cope with.
