In honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday, I’ve come across a fun little collection of life sayings (from his books) to live by.
I know I’ve posted similar things in the past, but everytime, I come across one of his books or a collection of his work, I am amazed at how insightful he was. And I am amazed at how complicated adults must make things.
Note: sorry this is a few days late. I thought I published this piece but apparently word press had other plans.

I know I’ve been away for a while but you’ve gotten to enjoy some really great posts from other author friends of mine. Although I was happy to introduce other authors and their work to you, I’m sorry you weren’t getting your usual dose of RANTING me. The reason that I’ve been a tad bit absent, is because I’ve been spending so much time over at my new place (although, I still love you all here at my old place!). RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB has taken off and let me tell you, it’s been, and still is, a wild ride! We are having so much fun over there and if you haven’t joined yet, you’re missing out on a lot.

O such a commotion under the ground
When March called,”Ho there! ho!”
Such spreading of rootlets far and wide,
Such whisperings to and fro!
“Are you ready?” the Snowdrop asked,
” ‘Tis time to start , you know.”
“Almost, my dear! the Scilla replied,
“I’ll follow as soon as you go.”
Then “Ha! ha! ha!” a chorus came
Of laughter sweet and low,
From millions of flowers under the ground,
Yes, millions beginning to grow.
“I’ll promise my blossoms,” the Crocus said,
“When I hear the blackbird sing.”
And straight thereafter Narcissus cried,
“My silver and gold I’ll bring.”
“And ere they are dulled,” another spoke,
“The Hyacinth bells shall ring.”
But the Violet only murmured , “I’m here,”
And sweet grew the air of Spring.
TEARS IN THE SUN pulls the reader into the riveting scene of a teenage daughter caught in the clutches of a manipulative and mentally ill mother. Well done, Jennifer Owenby! ~ Bette A. Stevens http://www.4writersandreaders.com
READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Monarch Butterfly conservation is in the news. AMAZING MATILDA is too! Her storyline and illustrations follow the monarch life cycle and highlight milkweed, an environmentally threatened plant, the only food source for monarch caterpillars.
“… I immediately fell in love with Matilda, an amazing, sweet, curious character. What a lovely story with a subtle and yet deep and understandable message for young (and those who are not so young ) readers. This book is one of “must have” books in your library. I already purchased a Kindle version for myself and I ordered two more copies in print for my library.” —Vida Zuljevic

First, thank you to Rave Reviews Book Club for voting me this week’s Spotlight Author! And, a huge thanks to all the members who agreed to host me on their site!
My name is Bruce A. Borders, author of crime-fiction books. I guess you could call me a professional dreamer – or a schemer. Either one fits.
