Strange Times

Looking beyond today
Looking to the future – cover from Inspire Me: Perception

As a poet, I’ve had so many ideas for stories and poems. Writing with pen and paper seems to work to alleviate some stress of the changing world. Transferring them to the computer and editing is something I haven’t had the energy to do. I have felt a change was long overdue, but the insecurity and unknowingness are alarming. I’ve been watching less and less news. So much anger, depression, and mistreatment of our fellow man that it’s numbing because it’s overwhelming. I wish I had an answer to ease other’s pain. I have to learn to ease my own, to move forward.

May you be blessed, be safe and be kind. Much love! Sonia

Gratitude

Laughter and Joy is a blessing. Grateful.

What is gratitude? A difficult issue currently when so much is happening in the world. Protest, COVID 19 and if that wasn’t enough there was the issue of the killer hornets.

Gratitude is being grateful for what we have in our lives. Our health, family, friends, a home, food, laughter, and the knowledge to know that we will overcome these challenging times. Sending many blessings and take care of yourselves (health, love, and nourishment). Be safe.

Instability

Instability

It’s a strange time in our history. The pandemic affected many major cities in ways we haven’t thought of in our current history. Then the protesters for Black Lives Matter. I’m in total support of equality. That part of living in the United States should be a given. This might upset some but what I’ve realized that some interpret “equality” as taking over. As a minority myself it just means equality. To be treated with respect, compassion and consideration is just a human need, no matter what culture or color of your skin.

I’m pro mankind. To be able to live without fear. To be able to work without discrimination. To be able to love whomever you wish.

Sending blessings and much love to all. May we all be safe. Thank you!

Reviews:

“This new book entitled “…Perception” covers a plethora of topics from forgiveness to dreams to food! Although the subject matter is diverse, they all have the same through-line which is that perception is everything. How we see the world and interpret it is how it will be presented to us. This deeply spiritual book of poems is bound to be perceived as uplifting, intimate, and brave.”

“I loved this book SO much! What a journey it takes you on, a beautiful and inspiring journey of life. It is filled with raw emotions and feelings. The poems are beautiful and full of stories that take you on adventures through life that are so vivid you almost feel like you are there. It is moving, intriguing, inspiring, and a must-read! I would give it 100 stars if I could! 🙂 Definitely recommend this!”

“So very touching I had to read multiple times. Each time I got something different out of each poem. Sonia is a very talented writer and her connection to life is very real and her emotions are very raw, I love it.”

“Sonia is so very talented. She writes easy to understand yet thought-provoking poetry. Her imagination transforms your thoughts. If you are on the fence about poetry give this author a try she will definitely change your mind.”

WriteGirl & Lynne Thompson

Yesterday I had the privilege to go to the WriteGirl retreat and meet such wonderful ladies who are donating their time to mentor underprivileged girls learn how to write.  I also met Lynne Thompson and heard some of her beautiful poetry. Looking to get Lynne to be my next guest poet.  Stay tuned.

As always be blessed, be kind and I’ll see you next time.
