  1. such an original way to express…you. i really like your poetic ‘about’. but if i may be so bold, you are anything but “nobody special”… lovely, absolutely lovely

  2. Okay. I don’t follow many blogs. Yours is on my list now. Your writing leaves me breathless. Even your “about” is a work of art. Does it just come out this way or do you re-write a hundred times?

    • You ROCK, Alice. You’re my new hero, and I’ll take you to lunch anytime you’re in town. Nope. I sit down at the computer to write, and I just give birth to it. Then, I walk away for an hour so I can acutally see it when I come back. I come back and correct my dreadful spelling and try to find replacements for the words I use too often. At that point, I give up and hit “publish”. That’s about it.

  3. Zen Doe, Lunch would have to be on me. You write like someone with a direct tap to the rich aquifer that the water flows from. Glad to meet you. Keep writing.

  4. I agree with Alice Keys. Something powerful and refreshing here. Can’t wait to read more. Found you through Johnnycrabcakes. What a find!

  5. Zen Doe,

    Thanks for venturing into my site and liking one of my posts. Feel free to return and offer any suggestions. You clearly have a stronger grasp on the craft of writing than I do and would love the advice. Look forward to following you site, Thanks again.

    Happy Writing


  6. Hi there! I just was nominated myself, and now I’m nominating you for the Liebster Award. It recognizes up-and-coming blogs, particularly those with less than 200 followers. Visit my blog for all the details, and congratulations. Thank you for inspiring me. —Jadi

  7. I am thankful to WordPress for being able to find beautiful blogs like yours. I love your category for posts ‘healing’ – I believe telling/listening to stories is healing in itself.

    • Thank you! Yes ~ realizing that our lives are stories, and telling those stories well can be incredibly healing. That’s certainly what I’m finding here.

  8. I haven’t read such a beautiful “about” like yours before… Your poetical spirit and beautiful expressions and usage of this language fascinated me. Once again I am so glad to meet with you and to be your new follower. Blessing and Happiness. Thank you, with my love, nia

  9. I am so happy to have arrived here but it was because you found me. I love your voice…your writer’s voice and I look forward to reading more. I shared your post on my facebook page (fredericton bioenergetics) and hope my readers will enjoy your work as much as I did.

  10. I saw your ‘freshly blogged’ post this evening and have read about half of your posts…I just wanted to say that you have a beautiful writing style and that I look forward to reading more of your work. ^_^

  11. What caught my attention is the first line and the last line… Now that I am old… I remember. They are an invitation to listen … Thank you.

Please leave a response if you'd like to. I love hearing your thoughts.
