Bloggers PhotoTime means nothing when you don't have it or remember when you did or don't know if you will ever have it again.

My memory was taken suddenly in the space of an hour seven years ago and for five years I was lost, not knowing who I was or where I belonged.

I was placed in an institution and heard stories of who I had become.  Some were funny, some were sad but all were about someone I never knew.

It finally ended and I started to live again much to the amazement of the doctors.  I have been well now for two years and started writing after the haze cleared. 

It feels so good to be here at Soup; each one of you that have reached out to me with your comments and friendship have been part of the healing that has brought me back to life.  This place has been a haven and I am grateful for the friendship and encouragement you have given.  

Bless each one of you and know you are part of what makes life wonderful.        

Amazing news !!!

After a long frustrating time I'm delirious to say that I have a book published. It has a dark red cover with a silver ribbon edging around it and the title is  "POLISHED STONES".  It has 176 pages and you can see what it looks like at - authorhouse .com - just type in the title and my name and it will come up.

I had to tell you about this because, it is all of you who have made it possible.  Your encouragement and comments since I became a member have given me the impetus I needed write after what was a lengthly illness.  Your friendship is and has been precious to me since joining Soup and I need to thank each one from my heart for your support.

Love, Elizabeth

    dear liz. thanks for the intrest in my work. i read your bio and i see that we have something in common and that is a lot of pain. a lot of my poetry comes from that but i have to say that the best of it comes from good teachers and good parents. but most of all good poetry. the old stuff but the new stuff, such as that that you produce. i take from it as well. i'll be looking for your book in the near future. and hope that your looking into my past won't depress you.

    A big congratulations to you, Elizabeth. I went to see how it looked. It looks very pretty all in red!! Great title too. I have a poem entitled "polishing stones!" so we both enjoy that metaphor for our poetry. LUv, Andrea
