Welcome to my cyber world. Thank you for visiting. Please, pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable as your browse through my space. I’m currently in St. Louis, sitting in my favorite room in the house, my office. Half a block from Forest Park with large French doors that look out at the world, I watch each day unfold.
Technically, it’s the master suite, but when we moved in, my husband didn’t hesitate to deem it my creative space. It’s a light and airy room decorated with dark woods and touches of red, my favorite color. Sting plays in the background as my cats snooze on the leather chair in the corner and I write for hours at a time.
I need only to look up from the keyboard to get a dose of our beautiful world. With life on warp-speed, I write my stories as the seasons flash before my eyes. Like a rotation of Nature’s glory, the colorful explosion of spring, the oppressive shimmer of summer, the fiery burst of autumn, and the crisp cleanliness of winter unveil themselves.
Dogs parade by. Some prance with huge grins on their faces, their tails wagging in anticipation as they drag their owners to the park to play. You can almost hear them say, "Oh boy, this is going to be fun. Let's go, let's go." Birds sing, the sun blankets the lawn, while my friend the squirrel sits on the balcony rail watching me with that curious what-are-you-doing stare.
Taco and Tequila are no longer physically here to keep me company, but their pictures grace my desktop so I can look into their eyes each and every day. The sadness of missing them lingers. They were a huge part of our lives.
I know they watch us from heaven, our guardian angels that purr. And the gift they sent us on Christmas Eve now curls up on that leather chair with her brother. Tango and Samba sleep, but only after they wear themselves out playing. Like two bullets, they chase each other around the house. They tumble and wrestle at my feet, rolling into one black fur ball, unrecognizable as two separate kittens. They make me laugh. The joy they bring fills a void, and I can almost feel Taco and Tequila smile.
The Universe works in mysterious ways, delivering gifts from Heaven; wonderful and supportive family and friends, Tango finding us 13 days after Tequila died, adopting Samba, and signing 2 book deals within 6 months I feel so Blessed! The Lord hears your prayers and answers them!
Thank you for visiting. I hope you like what you see. Please take your time exploring and come back often. There’s always room for my friends.
