You have probably come to my page because you are a writer or an artist or just curious. Please pull up a chair and just relax, because as a rule I’m somewhat laid back. I tend to be an optimist about people, time and life in general. At the moment, snow is piled in great heaps outside our door, but under that snow is another spring, summer, and fall. I love the sparkle of winter, though I’m not so keen about the temperature. Brr! As the years go on, the speed at which the next season arrives seems to be much faster, so I just bundle up and drink the hot chocolate while time marches on.
As a writer, I enjoy reading short stories as well as novels. I presently edit and publish a local magazine called “s.m.i.l.e.” for the residents of seniors’ homes, nursing homes and hospice patients. Through the magazine I have learned to write articles as well as short stories and the feed back we get from the readers is so far enthusiastic. We also include humour, puzzles, and poetry. I like putting all the elements together with photos and art to make an attractive page and a interesting read. Our magazine is completely filled with volunteered contributions and I send it in PDF format wherever it needs to go. This way the institutions and groups are able to print up as many copies as they need at the time.
I also write monologue, skits and plays, mostly, but not wholly, for church. And I have begun to write
hymns and songs in the past few years. I want to share some of my writing, art and spirit in this blog and hopefully make it interesting enough to get you writing back. What do you think ?
