A great day in life of two authors! ~ Bette A. Stevens
Bette’s new novel, DOG BONE SOUP has just been released. I’m about half way through it and I can hardly wait to finish it so I can review it. It is wonderful. She has a writing style so pure, it’s as if the story tells itself. It’s a story of coming of age in a hardscrabble world. Trials and triumph in northern New England.
This seemed a perfect time to remember the wonderful afternoon we all spend last October in Skowhegan. We were staying at an inn in Jackman, Maine. It’s just up the mountain — about 85 miles via route 201, from Skowhegan. In rural New England, that’s “just around the corner.”
Down the mountain we drove. Around 85 miles down, same mileage back.

I studied civil engineering (my dad’s idea of a secure job) and in 1995 I went on to do a PhD in Digital Architecture (the only way for me to link my degree with two of my passions, design and computers).

Kindness counts! ~ Bette A. Stevens
Remembering Martin Luther King.
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Someone said to remember M.L.K. We should do acts of kindness. I believe he would appreciate his memory of anti-violence and love to be strengthen by kind deeds and love.
Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.
I was just a baby when Martin Luther King Jr. led the world to equality with his sermons of love and anti-violence.
Even as a young boy he motivated my dreams of all men and woman being treated with equality and fairness.
I wonder how different the world would be? If Martin Luther King Jr. lived. I believe the world would of been a better place.
A old man walked into the mall.
He was wearing old clothing and not talking to anyone.
Me and my daughter were sitting at a coffee shop.
The old man sat across from us.
The manager of the coffee…
