About Thvia Stein
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI am a divorced, 43 year old woman of Scottish parentage with 5 amazing kids and 2 precious grandchildren. Currently I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. 

I'm not an expert on anything in particular but have the ridiculous ability of total subject recall to see me through most any single-serving conversation I happen to stumble into.

I love writing poetry because there is something awe inspiring about the creative and skillful structure of a thought or idea.  It is not just what you say, but how you say it.  Poetry is simply the artistry of language. 

Anyway, off we go to write great things and move great minds!  Thank you for indulging my foolhardy ramblings and for taking a moment to get to know me.

come-a come-a down dooby doo down down..

Keeping up is hard to do!

Just a quick blog begging everyone's pardon for not being able to keep up on my reading, commenting, and contest participation this week.  I took 6 months off work and just started back on Monday so I'm having to settle into a new schedule which may take me a bit.  On top of that, Michael (the incredibly handsome man in the picture with me) is flying in from Scotland Friday night for a two week visit so I'll be a bit.. um... distracted during that time as well.  I will still be on the Soup however so you'll see me about but I just wanted to let you all know what was going on so you don't think I'm a slacker!

That's all for now!

    If Michael were visiting me, the Soup would have to wait. Very cute -- both of you. Enjoy your time with him. The Soup will be here after he leaves. Best wishes to both of you, Carolyn
