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. 

New contest: An Inner Knowing, An Absolute Feeling, My Mystical Soul Self

Blog Posted:6/9/2018 12:34:00 AM

I have created a new contest.  Any form is acceptable. There will be five winners, and five honorable mentions.  The subject is: An inner knowing, an absolute feeling, my mystical soul self.  This was created by me this morning after I finalized my Dragons, Dragonflies and Hufflewinks contest which was enterd by 28 people who all had a wonderful poem to submit. I like these contests, because I feel it gives people ideas for poems that they might need to inspire them to reach a little deeper inside themselves.  Please consider entering this contest.
