Taking a Break

Hello Fellow Bloggers,

I have decided to take a break from blogging for a while. There are several reasons for my decision, one being that my available time to dedicate to writing has become limited.

My passion is writing and I created this site to share my poetry and hope that you would read it and understand. I have written my way through many ups and downs in my life and I highly recommend it to anyone struggling to be heard. Unfortunately, instead of letting my creative spirit go where it wanted to go, it was held hostage while I worked more and committed myself to other activities. I found myself forcing the poetry from me rather than letting it flow. My writing is not at its best when that happens, and I know it. Writing should be therapeutic, and at least, fun. Never a chore.

So my blogging friends and followers, I am putting down my pen for a while and intend to enjoy a little free time. I will be traveling as well as doing things I enjoy with my family and friends.

While I am away I will turn off comments. I will be back soon and in the meantime I thank you all for your continued support. Blogging is no fun unless you have readers and followers to share it with you. I appreciate all of you very much.❤️

Kind wishes,


Taking a Blogging Break in June

Dear Fellow Bloggers,

I am taking a break from blogging for the month of June to enjoy some free time.  Writing for me is a pleasure and I would like to use this time to rest and refresh and also reacquaint myself with my creative spirit. So in June comments will be turned off so you don’t think I am rude if there is no answer.

Thank you, as always, for your kind support and camaraderie. Blogging is not possible without you ☺️❤️

See you back here very soon.

Warm wishes,

3-2-1 Quote Me Challenge

Beckie from Beckie’s Mental Mess has nominated me to participate in the 3-2-1 Quote Me Challenge, which was originated by Rory, AKA A Guy Called Bloke.

The challenge calls for me to thank Beckie (thanks Beckie) and mention Rory. I am also to share two lifestyle quotes with you.

One is a favorite of mine by John Lennon and the author of the other is unknown but I found it to be very accurate.

If anyone is interested in playing this challenge I invite you to find two Lifestyle quotes and share on your blog.

Life Quote

Going, Going, Gone!

Paula, from Light Motifs II and Amir from Notes had suggested emailing to demand they remove my content from their site. They responded to the email claiming my site had been removed. On checking, I saw they had only removed Fandango‘s graphic. I complained again and this morning they sent an email that said “removed, please check”

This is the message on their site today. Good news! is temporarily out of service due to technical issues. will be back soon… was created with an intention to create a blog search site , but due to some techical issues, full contents of respective sites were being displayed instead of just excerpts as intended. We thank the complainants for bringing this issue to our notice and We are extremely sorry to the content owners.

Thank you to those Bloggers who took this seriously. It worked.

Tygpress is a thief – Do something about it

I know I am not alone in being upset with and it is heartwarming to see my fellow bloggers take this seriously. The theft of our copyrighted work is disgusting and unconscionable. This is all about advertising dollars and Google ranking for Tygpress and who knows what else.

Today I entered Tygpress into the WP Reader and was amazed at entry after entry about an Indian money game showing lottery numbers. I believe WordPress has to know what is going on and will eventually do something.

In the meantime please read the links below from some of our fellow bloggers who have gone into it in more depth than I have here, and use the badge above on all your posts. You will see there are things you can do to help and protect your sites. Maybe, the Site Scrapers, Digital Ocean (the host) and WordPress will know we are serious about the theft of our work.

Gone Fishing!

Well I’m not really going fishing but I will be away for a couple of weeks on vacation. I’m sure no one will miss my posts but just in case, I have scheduled a few poems and photos along with the Daily Haiku 😊

I only share this with you because I do enjoy all your posts and “like” and comment on them frequently.  As I’ll be out of action, meaning I will not be taking my laptop or iPad with me, there will be no opportunity to respond to any of your great posts or answer anything you may send my way.

Thank you all for the wonderful support to my still fledgling blog.  I will be sure to catch up on everything as soon as I get back 👍

Best wishes,
