Her mind full of dread
She had taken the walk
to clear her head
No more cheap talk
It was the reason she fled

The route had taken her
to a place unrecognized
She was now unsure
and feeling polarized
What was the lure

The wicked chill of the night
Did little to clear her thoughts
The dismal shroud of fright
Still tying her in knots
She was feeling the vicious bite

Taking leave to find her grace
And reach some reason
Lost in time and place
She exorcised the demon
Gone without a trace

        Yes, thatโ€™s what I intended when I started blogging. Hopefully people can resonate with what I write. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’•

      • November 27, 2018 at 7:32 pm

        many do … that’s why you have so many followers ๐Ÿ™‚

        Slowly but surely Kate. I always appreciate you reading my work and giving me your support โค๏ธ

        I would read a lot more Christine if I didn’t have to switch to your blog site every time … much easier to read it all in the reader but each to their own ๐Ÿ™‚

        Why canโ€™t you do that? Are the posts too long?

      • November 27, 2018 at 10:24 pm

        no it gives the first line only then I have to click over to your blog to read even the second line … makes reading a chore when I want to do more ๐Ÿ™‚

        November 27, 2018 at 10:21 pm

        I always have to open posts. Is there a trick I donโ€™t know about? I have to open yours Kate

      • November 27, 2018 at 10:26 pm

        ok so when you are in your statistics, on the blue line above on the left says “My SItes” and “Reader” …
        well every one you follow their articles are posted in that ‘reader’ so I just stroll through there and easily add likes or comments, usually both … do you open everyones blog, that’s far too slow …

      • Christine Bolton
        November 27, 2018 at 10:28 pm

        Yes I always open everyoneโ€™s blogs otherwise I canโ€™t see the whole post. Yours would come up and I would only see the first few words, so I have to open it ๐Ÿ™‚

      • November 27, 2018 at 10:39 pm

        ah then I need to change it … you are the only one I need to do that with, everyone else’s posts come up in full … off to change that now, sorry!

      • Christine Bolton
        November 27, 2018 at 10:42 pm

        Shoot, how do I change it? I would love to just read them in full in the reader! I didnโ€™t know you could ๐Ÿ™‚what is the trick?

      • November 27, 2018 at 10:48 pm

        under WP Admin –> settings –> reading –> click on ‘full’ not extract … had mine on extract so fixed it I think!

        Oh brilliant! Thanks Kate! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • November 28, 2018 at 2:57 pm

        is mine sorted Christine?

      • Christine Bolton
        November 28, 2018 at 3:14 pm

        Yes! I just clicked on to your post in reader and it opened the post without me having to go back to your website. It saves having all those windows open ๐Ÿ™‚

      • November 28, 2018 at 3:16 pm

        exactly and why I followed you again … unfollowed loads when I had net access issues ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Christine Bolton
        November 28, 2018 at 3:34 pm

        Oh yay! I need all the followers I can get! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘

      • November 28, 2018 at 3:36 pm

        lol they will build up quicker now people don’t need to open more windows ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Christine Bolton
        November 28, 2018 at 3:37 pm

        ๐Ÿคž fingers crossed ๐Ÿ™‚

      • November 28, 2018 at 3:37 pm

        it will happen ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Christine Bolton
        November 28, 2018 at 10:53 am

        Thank Kate. I did that and now with just one click I see the whole post in the reader and don’t have to keep opening the websites ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ‘ Much better!

      • November 28, 2018 at 2:59 pm


      • November 27, 2018 at 10:46 pm
