They chronicle my marriage to an Egyptian man after meeting him online, and only 50 days of correspondence.  I’m using my binders of printed emails as posts, so readers can watch this true love story unfold just as I did, and enjoy the whirlwind excitement of an internet romance that turned out more wonderful than any dream! These posts are treated separately in the Menu Section titled “Egypt” and can be found by Clicking Here

Posts found in “Poems” are poems I have written, usually on the spur of the moment, and sometimes in the middle of the night. Inspiration is like a lit fuse on a firework for me. She creates beautiful explosions of image and words for me, but she will disappear back into the darkness if I don’t capture her on paper, or on my Iphone more often these days, right away.

Posts in “Shatoetry Videos” are poems I have written using the free Shatoetry App for Android. This is the greatest poem generator app ever. For anyone who enjoys refrigerator magnet poetry, who could ask for more? You get a free app with a huge list of free words, and it generates a short list for you, but then you can search and select from the full list of words any time while creating your ‘shatism’. Every word you select can be dragged and dropped anywhere on the page, which is a wonderful background image of William Shatner. You can select from several backgrounds, each with Bill in a different pose to compliment various styles of delivery. And speaking of delivery, every word you select has three distinctly different oral renditions recorded by Mr. Shatner, allowing you incredibly creative license with his famously recognizable voice.  Now you can make Captain Kirk say just about anything, and he will wrap it all up in a wonderful video for you to share with everybody!

Posts in “SuperShort Stories” are are a self-imposed maximum of three paragraphs. These supershort stories are simple exercises in creative writing, based on plots generated by Plot Generator 1.3 Free App by ARCAPPS for Android. The stories are fictional, but some parts are true – I enjoy weaving my children’s lives into the story for the challenge and the fun. I also challenge myself to cover every detail in the generated plot, while keeping the story to three paragraphs, but this is a really tough challenge!
