Pick yourself up because today is not yesterday. Today is to today so give it all due respect by leaving yesterday behind and stop looking back at yesterday as if it was an old lover; who left you for some one better. But then don’t get so far ahead of yourself that you disregard today because you’re more interested in tomorrow. Don’t cheat today because you’re so in love with tomorrow; a thing that was never promised to any of us. Don’t rob today of all of your time and energy by wasting it on an uncertain future. Today is today so give it all you have. Savor each moment as a person in a desert landscape drinks in the last of his water in his canteen. He doesn’t know if there’s more water coming just like you don’t know the number of your days!

Today I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed dear readers. I’ve been doing my home work and brain storming on how to get my new book out when it’s released. Salsa! The Taste of Life, is going live shortly and I have a big job ahead of me. They say the “easy” part is writing the book and the toughest job is getting it out there. I invite you to help me brain storm and see what other ideas you could come up with because I believe that when it comes to a lot of things in life, 2 or more heads are better than one yes, I do have a publicist who will help me; however I have to get it out HERE where I live so I welcome your thoughts on this! If I use your idea, I’ll send you a free, autographed copy of Salsa! The Taste of Life. I look forward to your responses
I was checking the mail today and just guess what I received? The proof copy for my new book came to my door! I am speechless and elated and I had to share with you how the book will look. The process is nearing completion folks. I have 30 days to run through my book with a fine tooth comb and weed out any more typos. So far so good; my girls volunteered to lend me their eyes and so we have 4 pairs of eyes looking through it. Do you think we’ll miss anything? I hope not Thankfully they all love to read! Oh yes, the ones I still home school will receive school credit for having helped and of course a big hug, kiss and many thanks for their time goes to Elena, Esther and Raxy!!!
I like cats a lot. Dogs are cool but cats DO rule! When I was a child in and living in Colombia, I have more memories of playing with cats than with dogs. Then I came to the US to live with my uncle he hated cats so all we had were dogs. When I met my husband he was a cat lover and I rediscovered my love of felines. As I look back, I see that I have written several poems about cats and hardly any about dogs. Hmmmm what does that tell you?
Today I share with you a poem that you won’t be reading in my new book do out SOON, Salsa! The Taste of Life. I wrote this during a writing session I had with Writing Royalty, my writing group. I hope this makes you smile as you face your Monday!
I am Madame Fifi;
I stand four feet three.
I live in gay Paris.
I have three cats,
Fiddle, Faddle, and Didi.
We live in a loft,
where the clouds hang low and soft.
I go to the opera house,
once or twice per week,
with Frederic Chopin, my pet mouse.
Oh, he’s such a fine gentleman;
I curtsy, and he takes a bow,
and opens the door as we leave our house.
I wear my mink stole,
in all kinds of weather.
I have several hats also,
one with a beautiful peacock feather.
I’m so in love,
with wonderful, clever me.
My name fits like a glove.
I love others as well,
but none love me better
than my cats and pet mouse,
and the old lady that sits at the well.
She is my sister;
we are great friends.
We laugh and get mad;
we tell each other to go to hell.
And through it all,
I know I am loved,
or my name would not be Fifi.
