the multitasking writer
Have you ever tried to balance plates? Like, the old-school talent competition international contestant who balances plates on high poles balanced delicately on their chin, forearms, feet, and everywhere else imaginable? ... Neither have I. At least, not so...

You know it's hard out there for a [poet]

An Open Letter to the Poet on Rhyme
An Open Letter to the Poet on Rhyme Dear Poet, I recently read work from a poet who opined the merit and beauty of poems that rhyme. A poem should be read, he insisted with vigor, for the message it shares not the form it delivers. He cited the writings of ...

I was referred to Wags and Whiskers for my kittos while I was away for Christmas and I am so happy with my choice to board them here! Both kittens were taken care of with love and care. One wouldn't eat, and I was so happy to receive calls and updates until he was back to normal. It was hard enough leaving my boys, but it felt great to have peace of mind that they were being well cared for!
