January 5,2012

The girl with a million dollar smile,

will make your life worth while.

She is bright,

like the first day of spring.

In her hair-strands of spun gold.

Her presence warms you up.

With her in your life, you never feel old.

The girl with the million dollar smile…

…I’m so glad to know her!

On this category I will feature Eva’s Notable Notes; observations I make about life in general.


My goal as a writer is to be a sponge. What do sponges do? They rest until someone uses them. They absorb. They soak up. Once they are soaked they are wrung out so they can soak some more. As a writer I soak in everything I can that’s going on around me; making mental notes of bits of conversations I’ve heard. I jot down things in my note book that I’ll use later on.  I don’t ever want to be a dried up sponge as those serve no purpose; eventually dried  sponges disintegrate and are thrown out.

down, down, plie,
