Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

Rhyming – for many reasons

Written in many voices, some of these will take you to some very strange places.  As stated before my work evolved over a wide span of time therefore it has been like the ticker-tape of a stock exchange meter, i.e. many ups and downs but overall there has been growth.

In brokenness many have been lost forever, I’ve known a few folks like that . . . the end of their stories were seldom good.  For me, it was a journey on a path that didn’t have to be so painful at times – had I not fought so hard against “conformity”.  Having grandparents in my life to pray for me and encourage me in their love for a living God was a lifeline for me and my entire family.  You will soon see that my hands were blistered from holding on.   So let’s begin the journey.

Early Introspection

Early Introspectionmy early work questioned everything – and then some

My early work was penned questioning everything.  Here there may or may not be a story linked to what is posted; perhaps I’ll come back at a later date to tell the story.  For now, this will be a depository of a far from static mind.


Every now and then I will come across something penned during the darker years of my life that makes me go “hmmm.”  The following is just such a piece.  Considering the many changes and assaults on free enterprise, the incessant court battles to maintain the freedoms our men and women gave their lives for since the inception of our country, this almost sounds prophetic.

Having survived more betrayal and fights (to hold whatever dignity I had left), my vision became poisoned from anger and fear of a world that did not fit the one so wholesomely displayed in the movie scripts and television shows I grew up on.  Where were the “Old Yellers” and the “Lassies” and of course . . . “Bonanzas” and “That Girl”, where hard times coupled with hard work, truth, honor and respect resulted in virtuous living,  fulfilled dreams?

In spite of reality of my routinely cruel world (the one circumstances, my bad choices and poor judgement landed me in), I convinced myself that somehow life could be and should be like those shows.  A world where people defended one another’s honor, the good guy wins and the bad guys pay for their crimes, and a young woman could become anyone she wanted to be.

Sadly, after all these years, I know at last, a young woman (any woman) can have the dream she wants, if she believes it and if she’s willing to do what it takes and knows she needs help getting there.  For me, that’s not just anybody’s help, it means with God’s help because the struggle is great.  Nevertheless, HOPE prevails.

Here now, more than twenty years later is the dark and prophetic verse I wrote.
Freedom — Really!

Interesting how perspective changes depending on where you are in life.  Today, life is good. Fully surrendering my life to Christ has finally brought growth but it has taken many years and great strife, getting lost in painful heartache over and over again before realizing I had been running away from the one love that could never fail me.

Coming to the realization I could be happy without a husband, I began to reconnect with the girl full of dreams behind the face in the mirror.  Once we were on safer ground, enjoying newfound strength and becoming (as a friend of mine put it) “comfortable in our own skin,” I became more confident that I was okay with my singleness.  In the midst of that cycle I penned “SEDUCTION EXPOSED” with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek!


My dark years were not without moments of peace and sweet and bittersweet.  One such moment was the passing of a family member with a devotion to his God and family.  Faith can make a farewell so much easier, here is FAREWELL TO MAHLON KLINE


For now the about page will remain unwritten.  There are still some details to be worked out, nonetheless, all posts be they text, images or audio are copyrighted by me unless otherwise identified.   Thank you for reading and following me on this journey, I look forward to your comments and beg your patience.
