  1. Hi all, I would like to introduce myself to the group. I live in Euless. I would like to get back into writing poetry and fiction.

    Dirt orange sky,
    smeared zinc with storm clouds,
    smelled of ozone
    and stale rain.
    We counted off seconds
    between lightning and thunder,
    huddled close on the porch
    as the gap narrowed.
    Gardens grew hoary ripe
    that year. Early onions boiled in soup
    or we ate them raw like baseballs
    on the porch swing, our radio
    a doorstop against isolation.
    Static from the storm
    crackled and cleared
    familiar voices that still
    ghost stormy nights.
    A cottonwood split and burnt
    by lightning
    sizzled out in rain
    that welled and rivered our path.
    Inside, Mother hummed, pickled onions
    and packed them in jam jars
    tight against the storm.

    • Sheryl was a incredible Mother, Wife, Daughter, Sister, Daughter in law, Sister in Law, and Aunt Friend. She caerrid a incredible spirit with her in everday life personally, professionally and spiritually. She always had a cheerful expression. She helped me become a better person and helped lay a great foundation for our son Jacob. I dearly miss her and will always try to carry a little bit of her courage , spirit, and joy with me every day. She will never be forgotten.

  2. Congrats to KD, our newest published writer, on her new book contract! December 2013 was YOUR month! (Not giving the full name or book title until her agent says it’s okay.) Fingers and toes crossed for a movie deal to come out of this too.
    And welcome to our newest members, Monica and Rickey, who started off 2014 with their very first reads!

    • Thank you to Sheryl Sandberg for her honesty, and to you and your clueeagols for the dialogue, Randy. I will admit to situational crying. In a career spanning a couple of decades I can count the situational crying on one hand. A couple of times when employees shared with me either their own terminal illness or that of a family member. Once in a lay-off, I’d talk with associates and afterwards close my door and cry. That was a long day. I also attend work related weddings and funerals from time to time, and they both get to me. And I will admit to a few incidents when my cool down walk around the building included a few tears. I laugh a lot at work. I’ve been known to sing a little in the privacy of my office, while I work late in the afternoon. I bring my emotions to work. At times that has included situational crying.Here is my question, is it accepted more because I’m a girl? Or, am I viewed as weaker than my male counterparts because I am real?

    • I worked with Cheryl in her caatpicy of defense counsel for the company I am employed with. I found her to be an incredibly talented attorney, with a warm and friendly personality. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, to converse with and to meet with. While I only met her 3 or 4 times, I liked and admired her tremendously. My heart goes out to all of her family and friends, including the family she had at Hennessey & Roach. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

    • Sheryl was one of my best friends. No words can exerpss how grateful I am that she entered my life. Compassion, kindness, fairness, love, inner and outer beauty- these are only a small sampling of what Sheryl brought to all us. May we continue this fight for a cure for ovarian cancer.
