The Ocean

The Ocean

We mix Bahama mamas and watch the full moon rise over the ocean while sipping the rum concoction. With the silver glow of the rising full moon upon us, we make love, the waves our symphonic chorus. Continue reading


The Microcosm



I am coming up on a year of blogging. This is amazing to me because, as many of you know, time just slips by and suddenly it’s a year. Where did it go?

When I first started blogging, I thought that it would be a more personal experience, despite my original intention to be a book blogger, because, well, ARCs and books….lots of books. Squishy, squishy insides just thinking about all of the wonderful books I have imbibed. (Can you imbibe a book? You betcha darn tootin’.)

I have veered away from the personal and have let myself explore my writing because, since I was about 9 years old that is what I thought I would do…except for being a forest ranger or an oceanographer (minus the very important ability to swim well). Can I still be a forest ranger? Pretty please….and write…and have a pet raccoon?

As I am coming up on my anniversary, I am curious as to whether you want to see more of me or just know me through my writing and my obviously personal book reviews.

I only ask because I never meant to hide myself away as well as I have done in the past few months. On the other hand, expression is always found in all of the words.

If I haven’t said it before and enough, thank you for being there for me as a blogger and a writer. To have you read the poetry and fiction I write and to give me audience is beyond all response. I thank you.

And, yes, the adventures of Mouse will be returning.

Love, Sascha D.
