Love lies sleeping on a white sand beach. The tide washed her up and has yet to reclaim her. Starfish and fiddler crabs loll in shallow pools or dodge plastic shovels unconcerned that love burns nearby. Fearing the riptide that could drag her to deeper waters, she longs for a safe harbor. Embraced by the dunes and warmed by the sunlight, the gull's haunting laugh taunts her but she does not stir.


Love is not lost, 
only dreaming 
and I am in her dream.

" Forgiveness is the economy of the heart . . . 

 forgiveness saves the expense of anger,
   
the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits. "

"I have white tulips now, in the kitchen, wafting out of the crockery pitcher, always seeking greater light. They dangle as well from the silver watering can at the front window, on the blue plate with a seashell. Last week, the tulips my love brought me were yellow.
  
I must be mellowing in my new-chapter age, for I find a fondness for soft, subtle hues wherever they bloom their statement."

"I’m tired of watching him take her hand, sneak a kiss and only guess what they are doing behind closed doors; it’s been too many years now. I’ll have to come up with a plan . . . get him out of the picture, but how will I do that?"   {continued here}

I am Zeldor! See me soar! 

Never again shall I muffle my voice or deny my choice! 

I will lead the parade in the March of Rhymes. 

I will reside in the middle of the riddle.

There can be no worse verse.

I will pine for the sublime.
But I will never be clever.
I will moan alone.
I won't try.
Goodbye.

A Little Bit More about
OUR CLASSY DAMES:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Little Katie's comic book
A little bit more . . . about Wendy and Casper,
I mean WENDY and HARRY ~ 
    
EBBTIDE is a cross currents production number of two of my greatest friends, the sweet, sultry Sugar, secretly played by the good little witch Wendy Staley, and the surfing cowboy Harry B Sanderford, who has no resemblance to Casper other than the ghost of a chance you'll enjoy just how friendly he can be. (And that he believes life is better with comic books). Read more Wendy here. Read more Harry there. What a pair!


 A little Bit More . . . about HANNAH MORE ~
Portrait ala Abolition Org. 

FORGIVENESS?  Hannah More had a long, lingering engagement to a British landowner which ended quite badly. The beau on the go handed Hannah a yearly stipend in apology. More than less, this funded More's freedom to move to London, write poems, plays and campaign for true education for womankind. Feminist of the 1800's, turning adversity to advantage.

MELLOW is how I heard my heart speak my mind in the time it took to walk through three rooms to water the plants and trim the tulips, marveling at how they flaunt their jaunty prelude to spring. When not in the Salon, I'm AT THE BIJOU, "Where Writers' Raves are Readers' Faves".

about JEANETTE CHEEZUM ~
    
THE SIDEWALK CAFE is what happens when the kindhearted Goddess Mother of Brilliant Authors (It's what they call her aboard the good ship Harbinger*33, which you'll come to hear more of) shows how versatile her wrapping 'round words and genre can be. She went Noir. She went abroad with her Noir, did this broad. That tale and what she has to share at her words-worthy home, cavalcadeofthestars will show you how this goddess-mother author struts her stuff.

A Little Bit More . . . 
about our guest, MAE WEST ~

TIED UP?  Well, when she's good, she's good, and you already know when she's bad she's better. She's 'knot' one for letting any hunk of what the world spits out, tangle her up, nor bring her down. Come what Mae, she's all dame as her claim to fame goes, thus a welcome heroine to swagger the sultry for all our Salon shows.




Forgetful, messy, undisciplined

about MADAM Z ~ 

ZELDOR?  Tall, willowy Amazon with flame-red hair and jade-green eyes. Learn more, avoid surprise! Flourishing in lusty gardens of Lancaster, PA long past this very day. Doesn't matter if you're Thelma OR Louise, you'll want frisky ZELDA MARTIN riding shotgun. She shoots blurbs into ether @ Get-your-z's.

    ARGH! ALERT!

    Wow! You're allowing me to take the stage with such fine women. This was done to perfection. Each story the tease to travel onto other pages, sites and around the world. I love your razzle dazzle. I love your razzle dazzle.
    Take a bow, Ms Kate*.

    1. AHA! CHINTZ it shall be . . . one of the 3 words I shall challenge the grande dame Lily Childs with her Salon debut . . . after we both glean what the other two shall be. (post February Femme Fatales, naturally)

      What a fine surprise to find you hiding in for a nap away from the the world's contentions for a splendid hour in your loaded day, Lily. Hiding behind the divan wasn't necessary. Just tell Jeeves, "There shall be no visitors," and he'll tend to the solidifying of your solitude. Still chuckling, I am . . .
