Say it From the Heart


Easter rose quote

I have come to believe it’s my job–encouraging others–and I do not take the responsibility lightly. I also enjoy making folks laugh, and so obviously I do have a lighter side. You will find many encouraging messages, lots of funny stories, and some fair-to-middlin poetry on my blog, Marbles in My Pocket. Take a look if you have time and scroll through the archives. Please don’t laugh at the poetry though.

So, you see, the content of my blog is very much like a pocket full of marbles, in that its content is as varied and colorful, as the things and folks I’ve shared my time on this planet with. And, though I share them freely, my pocket somehow remains… always full.

I remember many, many days ago, when I was first approached about using a computer in my work as a construction superintendent. I scoffed at the suggestion and haughtily suggested that I didn’t need no stinkin’ computer to do my job. Read the rest of this entry »

Announcing: Marbles In My Pocket!

I was recently honored to be interviewed on the web site, Jingle Poetry in their Meet The Poet feature. It may not seem like a big deal, but to me it was huge! I appreciate the attention and opportunity very much. One of the questions was regarding the name of my blog, and though I had occasionally considered putting a name on my blog, I’d not given it any serious thought. The interview prompted me to do so, however, and the name I chose was “Marbles In My Pocket”. Read the rest of this entry »
