Blog Entry 100

This is my 100th blog entry.

I'm working on a few new writing projects including a couple of book-length projects. I will also be publishing a halloween story here on October 31st (as it has become a bit of a tradition to do so).

But for now I'm going to publish a poem here (as poetry has eluded me for a while). It is dedicated to my lovely wife, Jen.


Your love to me is like the summer rain,
like beautiful rain pouring down,
like an applause of the rain pelting my leaves,
like the mercy of rain saturating the soil of my soul.

Your love to me is nourishment,
each droplet is unique, like a snowflake,
and each droplet is a diamond, inscribed with kindness,
but neither hard nor cold.

And my heart is your secret garden,
which contains seeds of love which are too often hidden,
containing small beginnings,
which flourish because of your gentle rain.

Where do we go from here?

This is the 99th blog entry on Stories Make the World Go 'Round.

A single question presses to the front of the queue, like a pushy shopper - 'Where do we go from here?'

Providing we survive the blood moon prophecy and Jonathan Cahn's apocalyptic predictions for this September, I suggest we attempt to heal, learn and grow - even if everything else in the world conspires to prevent this.

Think happy thoughts.
