Getting Real

What is really real, really true in my life?

Un-Friending

I have to un-friend several people on my f-list . . . writers of explicit material whose WIP's I have been following. They are excellent story-tellers, and so I am reluctant to let them go. It's just that I'm really, really Catholic, and these stories bounce me between sin (when I read it all) and "near occasions of sin" (when I skip over explicit passages). As much as I enjoy the characters and stories--and as much as I appreciate the storytellers--this really doesn't fit at all with what I want for my life.

This isn't the only dead weight I'm cutting, either online or in real life. I feel I've wasted a great deal of time on various pursuits that don't challenge or improve me. It's time for me to buckle down and get serious about the person I want to be and the God I want to serve.

It's going to bug me that I won't know how several WIP's end. If you are a writer of one of the stories I've followed over the past year or so, I thank you for what I have learned about writing fiction and about relationships--especially the relationship between author and reader. Thank you for your dedication in responding to comments.

God bless every one of you. I wish you the best in real life. And whatever the life journey you find yourself on, I surely hope that we will cross paths in eternity.

I'll wait a couple of days before I actually un-friend anyone. Feel free to "beat me to it" if you are so inclined.

Alleluia! The Lord is Risen!

I wanted to get this out this morning, but just couldn't get to it.
Hope everyone had a blessed day!


A Handful of Little Willie Poems

I've been decluttering and came across a few Little Willie poems that I had mislaid. I knew they'd surface sooner or later. I actually wrote them last May . . . .Collapse )
 

And to My Eldest Son, I Bequeath My Funny Bone

Sometimes I get completely lost up a stream-of-consciousness without a paddle. Listening to a caller rant on talk radio the other day, one moment I was ticked off and the next I was laughing about how my great-nephew joked with us at a family get-together.

A funny guy, eh?Collapse )

Happy New Year!

Here's a pic of Father Time with Baby New Year that I found on Wikipedia. Not the usual caricature . . .Collapse )

Little Willie has a bit of fun in the snow . . .

We've had snow on the ground for a while now in my neck of the woods. So in honor of winter, I submit the following Little Willie poem . . .Collapse )

If you get a strange comment on something you post, especially if it's someone not on your flist, it is probably just spam. It's happened to me twice so far.
