I believe in being prepared for any given situation. It isn't because I'm a pessimistic person; I think it is just good common sense. Hence, I've entitled my blog "Even Nothing is Something."

This covers my butt in any event. On any given day I can feel great exaltation that I have done something grand. I can scribble fiercely when my thoughts are leaping across the meadows of my mind like a happy little colt in the month of May, or my mind and writing can be as dry and arid, as cold and without life, as the Gobi desert - because even Nothing is Something.

I want to thank all of my fellow artists who work through other means and forms and who sell their work on the wonderful artist's site "Etsy," a place to buy and sell all things handmade, along with vintage items and supplies for their craft. They are a great group of people.

Those who have links to their site on my blog represent only a few of those whom I wish to include. Just click on one of those links and join the Etsy community. It is free. They are a great group of artists who have relieved me of my money in the most delightful of ways. If it weren't for their encouragement, I would have never shared my work through this blog.

Thank you my darling friends!

Sense and Sensibility

Sense and Sensibility rarely ride in tandem.
It seems that when one comes, the
Other goes flying off at random.

When tardy Sense falls behind, Sensibility will gain.
Moved by passions rash and thoughtless
Interjection – such will be my bane.

Sense withheld by something MONSTROUS and STRONG,
Whose existence I never stop to question
Who is right and who is wrong.

One says. “Now That Makes Sense!” I am very pleased.
Then Sensibility cries….”Have a Bigger Heart!
With Sense you’re merely teased!”

Now! There I’ve done it! Much without consent!
Pity reigned. Oh Hearty fool I am because
Good Sense my Sensibilities did thwart!
