I live in St. Louis, MO, but my heart and soul hang out at the beach. I am a multi-genre, award winning writer and member of St. Louis Writer's Guild. I am a seasoned pre-k teacher, on line writing instructor, wife, mother, Nana to ten. Hopefully, something I say will make you smile, further your writing career, or inspire you to write from the heart, too.

Let the lights shine!
On a crisp December, winter night, when the full moon was bright
a group of good friends gathered together for dinner and a tour of the Missouri Botanical Gardens Glow Light Festival. What an awesome event!
The giant Christmas tree, one of the focal points, seemed as bright as the moon light.
Overhead, orbs and stars dangled from tree branches, competing with the constellations.
Trees were wrapped in brilliant lights in the most beautiful shades of blue and purple.
Light sculptures such as this sprung up from the snow-covered ground, and lighted globes the size of beach balls lay immersed in the frozen ponds.
Icicle lights sprung up out of the ground, as we weaved our way around the gardens, down trails,
and through the tunnel of lights. This is a view from overhead.
At 8:00 p.m. the Garden was crowded with hundreds of people of all ages, sipping hot chocolate, enjoying the magical moment, creating memories...and we were part of it.
Pat, Gerri, Betty and Linda...not bad looking M.E. senior citizens!
