Sunday (Evening) Post

When I first started Sunday (Evening) Post, I wrote, “I follow a blogger (Brainfluff) who has a post feature that is simply delightful and engaging, so I am posting my Sunday (Evening) Post here:” Basically, following Sarah’s lead, I posted WHAT I am reading/ WHAT I have finished/ and WHAT I’ve seen (TV, films, etc.) along with an update on the past week’s activities.

This past week, I have FINISHED: You Can Do Anything: The Surprise Power of the ‘Useless’ Liberal Arts Degree by George Anders (2017). This book was a life-changer for me.  Not only did it persuade me I still had relevant skills in my current employment search (having majored in Literature in grad school), but now I am converting my copious notes into a brief to be read by my students in the fall.  YES, you read that correctly! I called to see if I could get…

Running Out of Space is FREE for today and tomorrow!

Brainfluff

The Kindle edition of Running Out of Space – book 1 of The Sunblinded Trilogy is FREE for Friday 28th and Saturday 29th June.

BLURB: Lizzy Wright has yearned to serve on the space merchant ship Shooting Star for as long as she can remember – until one rash act changes everything…

Lizzy and her friends weren’t looking for trouble – all they’d wanted was to prove that fertile English girls could handle themselves when on shore leave without being accompanied by a sour-faced chaperone and armed guard. Looking back, maybe taking a jaunt off-limits on Space Station Hawking wasn’t the best idea – but no one could have foreseen the outcome. Or that the consequences of that single expedition would change the lives of all four girls, as well as that of the stranger who stepped in to save them.

Now Lizzy has more excitement and danger than she…

TUESDAY TEASER

powerfulwomenreaders

This thank you to Sarah of “Brainfluff” who first introduced me to “The Purple Booker” ‘s meme goes out on Tuesday, June 25th, a rainy day on the Texas Gulf Coast. At least with the thunderstorms and rain, the “feels like” temperatures are no longer 111degrees. “Feels like” temps factor in the humidity, for which we are notorious. A UK visitor to an author friend of mine stated, “Wow, I feel like I just stepped into a Turkish Steam Bath,” upon deplaning, walked across the tarmac, and upon being seated in her waiting car, he promptly fainted.

Today’s teaser is from You Can Do Anything by George Anders. The book explains the value (Yes, there is one.) of a Liberal Arts Degree in today’s techie world. He quotes C.P. Snow’s essay, “The Two Cultures” in chapter five as follows: “…Each group had a curious distorted image of the other based on dangerous…

Priceless : A hunger for life

Two on a Rant

18 Hilarious Sad Cat Problems That Might Explain Why Your ...What is without price?  

Honor, integrity,

sealing the deal with a handshake, 

being good to your word.

What comes at a price?

Love, faith, children and pets.

What is priceless?

A peaceful mind, a life well-lived,

and experiences containing regrets you can live with.

Losing yourself in a book.

Living what you’re writing.

Good health.

Faithful Friends.

My life isfilled with intermittent priceless moments,

but it has not been lived without a price.

For I have lost as much as I have loved.

Rain Mantra

The rain comes gentle this morning

says: there are things that come and go

says: for all rain, there is also sun

taps out Quiet, Quiet, Quiet

on leaves like a mantra

louder than the train whistle

and steady increase of cars

that say: another day begins

and birds who sing: no matter the rain

in a hopeful tune

that’s hard to ignore.
