How are you all!?
What book has been on your coffee table or beach blanket for that matter, this summer?
I’ve been reading ‘lullabies for little criminals’ by Heather O’Neill
While not for the faint of heart this novel is frustratingly real.
“A gritty, heart-wrenching novel about bruised innocence on the city’s feral streets- the remarkable debut of a stunning literary talent” is right!
It’s just what the doctor prescribed for me this summer.
It’s inspired some grittier writing of my own.
They spend so much time looking through the lens knowing the importance of capturing a moment, the moment so that it can forever be shared with the world but yet so often missing out on living in the moment.
They can’t wait to tell their story. When it’s time to write, it’s time, you can only wait so long before the idea passes or your muse leaves, often wishing to record moments of the past forgetting to participate in the present.
They get so engrossed in the stories and facts they read that they long for the next moment that they can escape back to their story.
So really there is one problem, often the problem of existing and living in the moment.
So live your passion but don’t forget to also live your life, in the moment!

I hope that you all had a wonderfully happy, relaxing, fulfilling and creative weekend.
I hate to be a bother on an already bothersome Monday but I’m putting together my poetry e book and I would like some input from you all.
If you could take a moment to let me know which poems you would really like to see in my e book I would be very grateful. Do you have a favorite? One that stood out from the rest for you? If so why? I may put these comments to use…
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog and for taking the time to comment and share. You all are awesome!
