The Choice

I had written something for this blog but when I read it, it didn't appeal to me. And if it wasn't of interest to me, I doubted it would be to you.

I sat back and tried to think of something else and was rewarded with - zip. Great, third posting in and I'm already empty. So I sat some more. (Writers do a lot of sitting and a flattened, square ass is a result of such inaction; so much so that it has become a physical requirement of the trade. Just a warning to you newbies.)

A question started to buzz my mind. Say you lived in a world where you had the opportunity to change your life. It was the luck of the draw whether you would get a better or worse existence than you had now. Your present identity would be voided and your sex might even change. You might become rich or famous or end up in the darkest slum. The odds were always 50-50 and you only would get one try. No going back. No do overs. Who would take that chance? Would you? Hmm, I sense a story emerging. I'll "talk" to you later. ~ Donna

Please help

For the past couple of days, my family and I have been renovating the first house we lived in. It's a small house, a little larger than 600 sq. ft., which was made to feel even smaller with three dogs, one of which was a Great Dane, two cats, and a baby. But it is a good house, always has been.

I thought back to when we lived there. Times were not always smooth, in fact there had been a very rough financial spot where we were behind in the mortgage and the collectors were calling. But we made it. I guess we were lucky. I know we were determined. Right now there are a lot of people in Haiti who need help. So if you haven't already done so, please send money to the Red Cross. Also don't forget that this did not only affect people. There are thousands of animals who are hurt, lost, starving or dying. Please give to the Humane Society to help those poor animals who cannot take care of themselves. Thanks.

Something new. . .at least for me.

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~ Mark Twain

Hello everyone, or anyone for that matter. My friend and fellow writer, Dawn Berkoski, is trying to bring me into the 21 century since I'm such a cyber spaz. She insisted that it would be to my benefit to have a blog and I had to concede that she's probably right. So here I am floating with millions of other bloggers, all hoping to make contact.

As I stated, I'm a writer but my postings will not always pertain to writing. I hope you enjoy my insights, info, rants and occasional lapses into absurdity, which will be posted 4x a month. In the mean time, savor life!
Thanks for coming and please stop by again. ~ Donna
