Amy Hale Auker ... a hard working writer

"Amy Hale Auker's short story "Quatro in the Late Afternoon" appears in Rough Country, an anthology of western stories." 


"Amy Hale Auker also has two poems, "Lightening Up" and "See You at the Barn"  in the National Cowboy AnthologyCelebrating 30 Years of Wrangling Words."

Since I first started reading Amy Hale Auker's work, I have come to realize just how hard working a writer she is, always at the page. Essays in magazine, poetry and short stories, a lovely mixture of fine work. 

I've written of her work several times as I've done for other authors whose work I enjoy and I do enjoy her style of writing. Have a look at her website and read some of her work, I think you'll enjoy.

Happy Easter

... Enjoy and be blessed!

"The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us 
have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his
 goodness and love, which nothing can shake."

Basil C Hume, (1923-1999)
Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster

Please don't add the sugar!

I read the labels when I'm at the market and I just can't believe how many food products have added sugar unnecessarily.

So, I've embarked on a no added sugar adventure. If the food has added sugar, I just won't purchase it. If the food naturally has sugar such as fruit does, then that is fine and I can have it.

I've already eliminated soda pop and sugary drinks as well as most junk foods and I purchase organic exclusively when found. My teen son is also traveling this road for the promise of a clean complexion and good natural health so I'll have a partner to help me toe the line.

We know this will be hard so we've planned for one cheat day per month, the 15th.
Wish us luck!
This is the only sugar in my home at present. Read about organic coconut sugar.
Coconut Sugar may be slightly healthier than common sugar cane but it is still sugar and my plan is to not add sugar to anything. Looks like this can only be used for our cheat day.

A memory visited my heart. 

It mumbled the same story 

as the previous days. 

I usually dismiss it with tears.

But today is different. 

Today, I released it with a smile.
