Ghosts: A Strange Dream

Book 'Em, Jan O

************
Just before Thanksgiving (years ago), the wiring in my brother’s house caused a catastrophic fire – completely destroying the home, but more importantly, claiming the life of his youngest 3-year old daughter. Horrific doesn’t begin to describe the details of that night and how the others barely escaped and were injured trying to save her.

Fast forward five years when my own daughter was four. She was having a restless night, so I awakened her to cuddle and comfort. She then told me that…

Little Miss Pollyanna

SHEILA RENEE PARKER

Ahhh…. Little Miss Pollyanna….. to live day to day with a positive attitude…. to try one’s best to help spread the ever so needed energy of positive vibes. …. to negate all that is negative to help the world be a better, brighter place. Not a bad way to live. At least, not for me anyway….. lol…. however….

There are those out there who have tried to imply that I’m “too bubbly”. That I’m too much of a dreamer, always with my head in the clouds. Well, all I have to say to that is… I am extremely proud of the cheerful person that I am! I have come a loooonnngggggg way to be the woman that I’ve become. And yes, I am a dreamer, but I am also a realist. I know when to set boundaries when it comes to the fantasy world. Will I ever stop being…

Originally Answered: What is the creepiest unexplained experience you ever had?

I had an imaginary friend named Angeles when I was younger.

I made her up one day so I would have someone to play with when I was bored. She 

was purely fictional.

When I was about 7, I was playing with her one day and my dad and brother called me to come outside so that I could help them clean the parakeet cage.

I was the only one in the house, aside from my older sister (but she never left her room), so I was basically by myself.

I told Angeles that I would…

Indie Blu(e) Publishing Announces the Release of We Will Not Be Silenced

INDIE BLU(E)

We Will Not Be Silenced: The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully Through Poetry, Prose, Essay, and Art is the brainchild of Kindra M. Austin, Candice Louisa Daquin, Rachel Finch, and Christine E. Ray. The four indie writers and survivors felt compelled to do something after the strongly triggering Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings. Ultimately, they decided to advocate, educate, and resist through art.

They opened submissions for only two weeks to women and men around the world. The response from writers and artists was overwhelming: the final anthology includes 166 pieces of writing and art from 95 contributors around the globe.

The editors decided early on that this was a project of passion and compassion, not profit. 70% of the royalties raised above the publishing and promotion costs will be donated to organizations that provide services to sexual harassment and sexual assault survivors. The editors have prioritized…
