In my favorite poem by Robert Frost, Nothing Gold Can Stay, he reminds us that like the seasons of nature, life is one season melting into another, and quickly fading away. This is my attempt to document each season in my life and my family.

And…we’re back!

Guess who? It’s your absentee blogger friend! Sorry for the long absence from blogging. I’ve been having adventures and life crisis(es). What is the plural of “crisis”? Oh, ok. It’s crises. I could hear the word in my head, but I didn’t know how to spell it until I looked it up. So, I’ve been having adventures and life crises.

Basically, I went on a cruise and it was mostly fun. I visited Cozumel, Mexico. Belize. Isla Roatan, Honduras. and Costa Maya, Mexico. It was great. I had never been out of the country before. I had never rode in a taxi before. I had never sailed on a ship before. I had never had a scarlet macaw land on my head before. I had never ate iguana before. I had never been bitten by a monkey before. I had never shared a hot tub with Canadians before. I had never played slots before. But…now I have. And it was good.

As far as the crises go, I’m getting divorced. We tried to make it last longer for the sake of the kids, but that’s not going to work. That’s all I really want to say about it right now.

Also, you should really buy my book. Pretty please. If you already have, if you write a review on Amazon for me, I will send you a free book. One that I didn’t write. No worries. I have some good ones, and I’ll let you choose.

I know this post is kind of ADD’ish, but it’s the best I can do tonight. I’m just trying to get back into the groove of writing again.

My Book is on Amazon!

I am so excited! I have finally published my Kindle book I’ve been working on.

It’s called “Coming Out: Poetry & Short Stories” by Rachel Harmon. Right now, it is only in Kindle format. I know some of you don’t have a Kindle, but you can read it even if you don’t. You can read it on your computer. If you have a smartphone, you can download an app to read it on your phone, as well. Here is a link that can show you all the different ways you can read Kindle books.

I would be absolutely thrilled if you would read my book. If you do read it, please let me know what you think about it. I am just absolutely thrilled to have my words published for people to read. Being a writer is my dream, and this is a step in that direction. If you like my book, it would mean the world to me if you took the time to post a review on Amazon saying if you liked it and why. A few good words about it might persuade someone else to drop $2.99 on my book and give it a chance. I’m just looking for a chance.

Let me know if you read it!
