The transparent Lamp.

The Transparent lamp ,

with its red tangled tassels

as I dab my upper lip...

While the tour group pose

strategically silenced , by

the photographed cascade.

Al,....souvenirs -

Shopping - for three years now

at the same closing down sale,...

Its late afternoon -

as the aunties jive

with their slim shadows,....

Kerry'ism Quote - CONFIDENCE

CONFIDENCE;comes from within, not outside in. It is in you, not of you. Doesn't require a stage, an audience, approval or recognition. Doesn't entail bragging, being obnoxiously cocky or the false sense of security that comes from that. True confidence is not how you feel when you walk into a room, full of people. It's how you feel when you walk out of one...alone ~ Happy Thanksgiving

SPAM IS SO NOT COOL!

Please do not greet everyone on the site with large images and announcements of your book or business. Yes, you want to tell the world, but learn the fine art of subtlety. A simple welcome and signature/link is fine. Let them ask you for more.
We have lost numerous members because of the amount of 'friend' mail they instantly receive. This Hurts Everyone.
Spam is unsolicited advertising, whether it is posted as comments on other members' pages or is emailed for marketing purposes.

Please be considerate. Post your advertisement in the proper Articles/Forum or Group. There are free classifieds on the Pages tab. You can post your information on your profile and even update your blog as often as you like.

We are not into censorship, so please don't make us ask you to leave. Be kind and unselfish - don't spam.
SPAMMING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED
