I live in the Monadnock Region of New Hampshire where a drive of ten miles in any direction requires going through no more than three traffic lights. I think out loud, I read, and I write. Some of what I write makes it to this blog. I call it writing out loud.
Sounds good. Thanks for the visit
You are welcome, took a memoir course locally over the summer. I write creative non-fiction. This fall taking a fiction course from NYU online. It will either encourage me to continue my focus on non-fiction or expand my horizons. Either way it will be of help.
Awesome stuff. Awesome to have you following.
I love the name of you blog! Thank you so much for joining us on wePoets, it’s much appreciated.
Hi there, thank you for following my blog. Keep on writing!
Thanks, it is a habit only exceeded by reading

Thank you for the follow, just know mine is a bilingual poetry blog, so if you get a notice about something written in Italian don’t give up, soon something in English will follow. Blessings and keep up the good work!
Good to know.
Hi, Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the versatile blogger award. Your articles certainly make me think and your daily walks are great. See more
Thank you Irene, we were away from computers today. Will try and follow the rules later in the week.
I love, love creative non-fiction. I just finished reading ‘Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer. The book is listed as a memoir but with the amount of dialogue and inter-weaving of numerous patients thoughts, it reads much like creative fiction. I’ll be writing a review on it one day soon.
If you have suggestions for a 14 yr old girls in the area of creative non-fiction I would love to hear about them. It’s her favorite genre and her mother and I scour the bookshelves for something her advanced reading level will enjoy and still take away something delightful.
I’m looking forward to coming back to your blog and browing around your other posts and read your writing. Thanks for the follow.
Your welcome on the follow, I love creative non-fiction too. Having said that, I just finished taking a fiction class at NYU and found it very helpful to my creative non-fiction. I may or may not one day write fiction.
I know you probably don’t do awards but have nominated you for the dragon’s loyalty award as a sign of my appreciation of your thought provoking blogs and comments. If you would like to take it up info can be found at
Thanks Irene, very nice, and I love dragons.
You have an amazing site. Thank you so much for following my blog.
Thanks Peter, looking forward to Dutch and such. Don’t forget the cat.

In your blog post about Thomas Moore’s new book, A Religion of One’s Own, the quote by Henry David Thoreau at the beginning of Chapter 6 , starts with, “I find that I conciliate the gods…” Not “consolidate” as you wrote in the post.
Good catch, thanks. Do you know the name of the post? or date? I will correct if I can find it.

Mission accomplished, thanks for your assistance.
Almost, Robert …
The word is “conciliate”. If you correct the spelling, it will be accomplished.
I am surely making this difficult. Writing from a Kindle, will correct tomorrow.Thanks for your patience.
To be presumptuous, I think I got it.
Thank you for the follow. I am pleased to find a true “neighbor” and fellow writer/blogger. What a wonderful world we live in that like-minded folks can find and “follow” each other!
bought your book, will read by July?? I am in the midst of a memoir. Hope to publish through Amazon before year’s end.
Thank you!! I am honored and touched. It is an amazing journey to publish. Always happy to give you my 2 cents and lessons learned. Congrats!!
Thanks, will probably follow up
Thank you for the kindness of reblogging my post. Your site looks lovely and I will return time and time again. Good to meet you! Millie
Thanks Millie, enjoyed your post.
I doesn’t come from me…thank you.
I try to hit likes for your posts but not registering for some reason. Am having this problem with about 30% WP blogs I follow. Often have to post comments using FB instead of WP too.
I have no explanation that would help, but posting a comment is for me a like I like even better. Thanks.
I nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog Award. I’m not really sure how this thing works, but the directions are on this link:
Love your writing, wish I could write out loud. I tend to think too much instead of just writing, and then I lose the inspiration.
