I have always wanted to be a writer and to have my work get published. I began when I was in grade school and wrote stories about my family. I moved onto writing poetry and garnered a Special Mention in a collegiate poetry contest. Taking creative writing in college led me to write short stories, which I tried to get published. But, I wanted to write a novel and attended a talk given by Ray Bradbury in Santa Barbara at the Writer's Conference, where he spoke on, "So, you want to be a writer?" He said all you have to do is write a page a day and by the end of the year, you will have written a book! So, I began writing books. I have had two published, one a non-fiction, "A Natural History of the Nipomo Mesa Region," and a fiction novel, "Fath ...more

Little River by Dadfire

I just finished reading a book that is not on Goodreads. But, it is such a good story, I wanted to share it with others. It is by Dadfire.

Little River is about a boy growing up in mid-twentieth century Arkansas. Each chapter tells about the mischief and predicaments he and his brother get themselves into. It is so funny! I really enjoyed the story.

The boy, Bean, lives on the family farm with his p Read more of this blog post »

“We are not separate from this Earth; we are a part of it, whether we fully feel it in our bodies yet or not.”
Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted: A Journey to Authenticity and Belonging

“Long before God the Father, there she was – God the Mother. Where did she vanish to, this great mother goddess? How did we women become so completely dispossessed? It wasn’t that I wanted to replace a male god with a female god; it wasn’t that I wanted to find a religion at all. I was simply looking for some sense that women might have worth. And I found it: there in the old stories of my own native land, I found it. Filled with images of women creating, women weaving the world into being, I took up knitting.

I began to reacquaint myself with the soft animal object that was my body. Slowly, spending more and more time outside, focusing on the wisdom of my senses rather than on what was going on inside my head, I began to weave myself back into the fabric of the Earth. Some”
