A Brighter Day

November 22, 2010


It’s good to be back working at my computer after a minor eye operation. Not the most frightening operation but for someone with a vivid imagination not the breeze so many imply. When the patch-a plastic oval with tiny holes that fits over the eye – was removed the morning after, bright light charged my now sensitive eye. The white paint on my apartment walls glared at me. A periwinkle shirt became a passionate purple. I could now tell navy blue from black and yellows were as bright as the sun at mid-day. I did receive a bit of a shock when I saw white spots on the windows; luckily before I panicked and called the doctor, I realized the white spots were just spots of dirt on windows that needed to be washed.
Now it’s catch-up time-the next chapter in a new novel, an article that needs to be tweaked, my neglected blog, Twitter and Facebook. Over 200 emails to be answered, submissions to be sent and leads to be followed but…I’m home.

Story Time With Mom

September 30, 2010

Rainy days were storytime days. A day to hear my mom’s stories about her childhood in New York and the family’s adventures in Bristol, R.I. Like the time, mom was walking her youngest brother, Johnny, to school and they cut across a field. Mom was wearing a bright red dress and it attracted the attention of a bull. The bull wasn’t open to endearments so mom grabbed Johnny’s hand and they ran and ran until they found the Veteran’s Home where a group of elderly Veteran’s lived. They were entertained with tales of war and heroism and plied with cookies and milk. Mother never tired of telling Johnny, after he served, that there would always be a place for him in the home.
Then there was the story of Uncle Morris and his cigar store. Uncle Morris was probably the only person in New York City who did not like Fiorello LaGuardia. It seems the Mayor did not approve of pool tables and dumped them in the river. Since the table added a good deal to Morris’s living, he had no use for the Mayor. I can imagine what he would think about our currnet Mayor Bloomberg and the ban on smoking. After the cigar stor closed, Uncle Morris went into the cloak and suit business. He became very popular with all the his wive’s- Betty- sisters. he was the one to turn to when a button needed sewing or a dress needed to be shortened.
Mom had a story about everyone in the family and I wish she were here so she could read mine. I hope, somewhere, somehow, she knows I’ve become a writer. to learn more about me, please log on to http://www.elisewarner.com Scene Stealer, my mystery is available at http://www.barnesandnoble.com, http://www.amazon.com, http://www.borders.com, http://www.carinapress.com and wherever eBooks arre sold.

In Loving Memory

July 22, 2010

In loving memory of every cancer patient, family member, and friend who has lost their battle with cancer, and those who continue to conquer it. Place this on your page for 1 hour if you know someone who had or has had cancer. Many won’t copy and paste this. I did. Will you?… Everyone has lost a friend or relative, someone they loved dearly. A frightening disease. Let’s pray that a cure will be found in our time.

Harmonic Connections

July 1, 2010

Sent off a piece today about a remarkable man, Jon Michael Spencer, who while studying music gave a concert for patients in a mental institution. The verdict was, “Better than Thorazine,” the drug of choice at the time. Today, his organization entertains at hospitals, nursing homes, jails and wherever they’re needed. Satisfying for both the entertainers and the entertained.
