Trip to in-laws. Dinner with friends. Sick-sick-baby. Superbowl. Cooking. Baking. Sleeping. Loving. Driving. Rocking. Shushing. And finally, writing.

I submitted two pieces (that I still feel wish-washy about, but submitted them nonetheless.) One is posted


Mella ~

You are a legend in the making!! Hope it was a great weekend for you. I haven't read the piece yet, but will get there later today. Can't wait!

Have a great week... and hope the boss is feeling better!

Mella, I think the greatest complement that I can give to you is this: As I sat there and read your piece, I was no longer in my home in front of my computer screen. I was in that kitchen with Eve, seeing what she was seeing, feeling what she was feeling. That is what writing a good story is all about. If you can take the person to another time and place then you have done something rare and special. A talent that not every writer possesses but seeks to. So very well done! And I hope your boss gets to feeling better soon. :-)

I have to tell you I linked you. I love your "stuff". Especially the submission you recently made.

I wrote this on your other site but just wanted to let you know here too what I thought about your story...amazing!!:)


This is incredible! I love the images that just poor out and the flow of the language. One of my favorite parts is where you talk about braiding hair and braiding the dough...I detected a special resonance in those paragraphs. I liked the line, "she taught me to find peace in simple acts." Well, I'm very excited to find out the results of the contest...let us know and thanks for giving us the treat of being able to read this!

A Girl, Susanna & CJ You're all so sweet and encouraging. Thank you. I can't tell you how much it means for me to have people reading and reacting to my writing. You're wonderful.

D.H. Why thank you. I'm flattered! Congratulations are in order, I believe. I stopped by your site and read that you're son is expecting his first child. How exciting!

I have to say Mella, I'm one of those people who think those lean lean meats, ....(especially ground beef) has to be 80% lean. If you get it too lean, it becomes too dry. You only live once, right? Indulge yourself once in a while. You'll feel better. ;)

Mella - Very well done. One of the things I love about your writing is the way you describe everything. Down to the breath. Truly amazing.

Peace & Hugs,

- Neo

Wonderful moment, when the humor sparkles through the grief.

Walk more, eat more fat, let it go.
