Bloggers Photo

My name is Caren; I was born an identical twin in a small rural town in Iowa; I live in the country; roosters wake me up. They are not my own roosters, but live behind me, and are eager to be helpful.  I am an artist, a cartoonist, a painter, a poet, a writer, and a game-player. When I was younger I knew all kinds of card games. When my children were small, I played many board games. They stopped playing with me when they realized if I was losing, I would diminish my age, turn younger than them, and throw the board.  I was once addicted to resale, and yard sale shopping. Every time I think I have broken myself of that habit, I have a relapse and drag home bags and boxes of other people's junk that I think I will someday use. More often than not, these found items end up recycled in other junk shops or recycle bins after I did not use them at all.  I'm an elementary school counselor, which means I teach children about respect, responsibility, and how to love each other and make friends. I love my life; I have been with the same man for 50 years, and our home is saturated with my paintings of booby women, because I love to draw and paint them and my husband loves me. 

Dragons, Dragonflies and Huffle Winks Contest

Blog Posted:5/14/2018 8:18:00 PM

I have inspired  a mere 7 poets to produce a poem for my next contest.  The contest is titled "Dragons, Dragonflies and Hufflle Winks."   Huffle Winks is a made up word, an imaginary word, a word I intended to see "what you could make of it." Seven people have entered and every one of them has described a Huffle Wink in a unique manner. Please enter my contest; and never be afraid to make up something to go along with a made up word like Huffle Winks.  The truth is, there can be no wrong way to interpret a made up word. Go for it, please! I would like to really see this contest catch fire!  And good luck!

Its a great contest - I read most of the entries and they are so good - I feel inadequate to the challenge. Plus some other contests are for me bringing up past things -good but put a dampener on my magical muse atm. It may come to light in time, which I feels needs to be given to replying to others as well- eek- so great really for everyone that entries are slow.

Ditto what Line said to you. I hope to do a poem, Caren. Not enough time is my foe, however!

Don't worry, Caren, when a contest doesn't fill up quickly. Many need to percolate the idea in their head for a while. Everyone is trying to make the best use of the little time they have to juggle a lot of priorities and they are checking your deadline in order to decide what to do next. No worries.
