With pen and I paper,
I aspire to paint portraits
with words that find color
in a black and white world
I value each hue that brings
new perspective to thoughts
we may share and understanding
to ideas not yet considered
While wandering in a place
of my own creation, I invite
each reader to come along
and teach me, to show me how
to see with new eyes
to feel with an open heart
to understand with a clear mind
to create with connection and purpose

Here, right here, I am just me…opinionated, honest, vulnerable, part silly, part playful and perhaps a bit judgemental at times (which I shouldn’t be…working on it). In my life outside WordPress, I am a lot of things to a lot of people, based on their perceptions. So, this blog is mostly about the real me…my … Continue reading Mission Statement Submission -paensunplugged

Come sit with me, my table is crowded with books and papers and of course there’s my caramel macchiato, but I will push them all aside for your coffee cup and you. We are now in what I like to call the “ber” months; it is fast approaching the end of and also beginning of … Continue reading Mission Statement – Writing Challenge September 2018
The Best Mother’s Day Gift.
When I was a young, extremely naive, stay-at-home mom
to two energetic and spirited little boys,
the perfect Mother’s Day “gift” would have been
an hour or two of peace and quiet all to myself to do whatever I pleased.
But now that I am an older, experienced, working-outside-the-home mom
to two amazing and independent young men,
and have gained two “daughters”
and a granddaughter too…
the perfect Mother’s Day “gift” has become
an hour or two of time together
to love and laugh and appreciate
the greatest gift of all…
The gift of
being a Mom!
Cheers & Hugs,
Sometimes my life gets consumed by kids and schedules and errands and running and writing and whatever else, that I forget that I have a life partner who can help with some of those things and who also needs attention. This poem was inspired by my Hubby and by the Go Dog Go Café Writing Challenge – The gift you share. Specifically, the challenge was to write about your gift of happiness to someone. I read this to my Honey before posting it – I think it made him happy!

With my still over packing at 3 am for our 6 am flight
And my inability to see the piles of pots and dishes and projects and wishes.
I make you happy.
If by happy, you mean, annoyed
With my running on Filipino time Apple watch
