Here is a sample of her work…

WHERE IS THE EQUATOR OF HOPE?

Mary Adler

Where is the equator of Hope?

The Prime Meridian for Love?

The coordinates of Joy?

And where are Lewis & Clark,

to run the rapids of envy

and resolve new paths to the heart?

Where is the 39th Parallel of desire?

The Northwest Passage to bliss?

The Gulf Stream that warms cold ashes?

And where dwells the Copernicus of Compassion,

who swears love spins on its own axis,

yet revolves around the other.

Where is the Mason Dixon line for the past?

The trade winds of remembrance?

The magnetic fields of memory?

And where is the Galapagos of grace,

where the self evolves to the selfless,

and the soul embraces the stranger?

Oh, where is the cartographer of Love,

To find True North of the heart

For the past only exists to remind me of the challenges I…

The Cowgirls of Serratogha.

By Wendy Scott.

A companion scene to my fantasy WIP, ‘Rainmaker’.

My spirits lifted when I spied structures rising above the prairie. For the last three days, the landscape had consisted of uninterrupted cornflower skies above an endless sea of grassland. Occasionally, a wild cow had burst out of the greenery…

10 Classic Picture Books for Fall

Rosco's Reading Room

Most people say summer is their favorite season, but I’m an autumn gal at heart. I love the changing weather, the warm colors on the trees, the orange decorations, the apple pie, and the visits to an orchard or a pumpkin patch. Plus, it’s my birthday season!

When my children were little, we’d visit the library and snag those prized, seasonal fall books off the shelves as soon as they hit the display shelf. Along with the seventy five or so 😉 other books the kids chose every two weeks–thank goodness for machine-operated checkouts–we’d haul them home and read a few each night at bedtime.

But I also kept a collection of fall themed books that I purchased, and many of those became favorites that we’d read year after year.

I miss those toddler and preschool days and would recommend this tradition to every parent of youngsters, before they’re old…
