  • About Me: Let me introduce myself and give you a flavor of who it is who lives inside me.

  • Poetry Page: I offer my viewpoint in poetry and verse, some serious, some silly. Topics are far-ranging: lessons from nature; relationships; tributes to people I’ve known; religious themes; injustices in the world. Occasionally you can read a bit of fluff describing a new mother’s reactions to her son’s first year of life.

  • My Books: Read about my books and where you can find them (bookstores, websites, e-book sites).  See if there’s anything new or on the way (like my poetry collection).

  • Adept-Able Living: Tidbits for people living with disabilities themselves or in their families.

  • Editing Services: Get help editing your business projects, Doctoral thesis, Master’s project, resume, memoirs, short story, or great American novel.  Expert, impartial editing improves everything you write.

  • Links: These will take you to my Small Things Count! site so you can follow what’s happening with that book (and order FREE copies if you’ve a mind to).  It will also lead you to sites that provide useful services or that I found interesting and tell you how to contact me.

  1. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this outstanding blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking
    and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  4. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  5. Many people argue that eating too many plants grown with commercial fertilizers or pesticides can cause health problems. When you’re preparing your planting area, just mix the soil with about three inches of organic compost.

  6. Hello this is kinda off topic but I want to know if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  7. I’ve been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this web site. Thanks , I will try and check back more often. How frequently you update your site?

  8. Do you have any background or experience in writing coz I really like the way you
    create 🙂

    • Glad you enjoy my blogs, Rusty. You ought to subscribe so you get them via email (sign up on the first page of this Blog–click HERE.). Yes, I write quite a bit. I have a book published in


      , called SMALL THINGS COUNT (for info., click on http://www.SmThingsCount.com). I’ve published 4


      (the modern way to publish),too. Read descriptions of them on this website, on the “Book Previews” page. (I have a special for my readers…Look for and use the code number on the description of the ebook you’d like.) I also have a poem on the Poetry page of this site, and I change it to a new one about every six weeks.

      I look forward to your comments on any of the books or blog postings!

    Does your site have a contact page? ӏ’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to senԁ you an email.
    I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

  10. Does running a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work? I’m brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new bloggers. Thank you!

    • Hi, Stevie–Yes, it does take a lot of work. I keep a list of ideas as I come up with them from the news or something I’ve read or heard, or something that I experience that I appreciate or feel isn’t right. I have to, because I do a blog posting 6 days a week. You may want to start out smaller. A large consumer-of-time is going through Comments each day to get rid of the mass of spam. If you’re truly interested in talking about setting up and doing a blog, contact me (see my LINKS page).

  11. With having so much written content do you ever run into a problem of plagiarism or copyright
    infringement? My blog has a lot unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?

    • If you put it online, be prepared to have it pop up…wherever. It goes with the territory. My poems carry the copyright symbol, but I know they’re passed on. As far as anything I use from someone else (in my blog or, sometimes, on my Adept-Able Living page), I always give credit. It’s the right thing to do.

  12. My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different
    web address and thought I might as well check things out.

    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to looking into your web page for a second time.

    Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long comment
    but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Regardless, just wanted to say fantastic blog!

    • Stuff like that happens. The reason is that, some days, the cyber-trolls come out from under the bridge and gobble up words. They’re generally harmless, though.

  14. Well written. Must be bookmarked 🙂

  15. I spent half an hour reading this blog’s posts along with a cup of coffee.

    • Now that you’re caught up, come back more often. Or subscribe so you’ll get an email telling you what each new post is about. I try to keep all my posts short enough for a quick read.

  16. Appreciating the dedication you put into your blog and detailed information
    you provide. It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed
    material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
