Rethinking Life

I’m back at the wee cafe in Barnes.  Different seat, different perspective.  Same parking lot.  A man, with white hair is looking through a book that he’s not going to buy, an older woman is eating and someone is reading magazines in the transportation section.  Valentine’s Day cookies are 50% off, at the counter, but no one is buying them because they are big hearts, with heavy pink and yellow frosting on them.

I just picked up small blank Moleskine journals, so they will fit into my purse.  If I want to carry my regular ones, I need a bigger bag and that’s not good because I end up filling it with all sorts of things and then it becomes too heavy to actually carry.  I’m not sure how the small ones will work, since I tend to draw and write in a big way, but I’m giving them a…

About clarabetty

I have always loved to write, it seemed as if I was born with a pencil in my hand. I have been a Christian most of my life and what I write is from that viewpoint. Within that framework I try to be factual and authentic in my feelings, to show that we are all alike and have similar problems and joys and that there is a Way through them... I took journalism in college and have done PR for various organizations. The genres I frequently write in are prose, short stories, essays, fiction and non-fiction for children and humorous articles, but what really speaks to me is poetry.I love to read what others have wrote and to try my hands at it.. You will find many poems here, mostly free verse. My sincere hope in sending these writings out into the vast cyber- world is that what I write will impart knowledge, lift someone up, give someone a chuckle to help get them though the day. I love to learn and pass on what I learn. to others. I believe "knowledge is power" if it is used rightly, and that "the pen is mightier than the sword." Just think if more people were writers, artists and dreamers, there might be less war and more love In the world. I hope you will 'like 'my blog and give me feedback so I know how I am doing and "Y'all come back- ya hear!!".
