Hmmmm what's with these categories? It doesn't say. Nevermind.

This is Lisa, from the Realm of Photahsiamirabel, just letting the world know I still exist! Those who are in day to day contact with me will know the past six months have been personally challenging, but all is well. I thought my frequent absences from various on-line communities needed some comment, so perhaps a blog is overdue...

Where do I start? Anyone who writes poetry will know how it takes over your life, as a musician and a poet I am doubly driven of course as the two Muses continually fight over me and somewhere in the middle I have to work for a living and maintain a family life....

I am also recovering from the muscle spasm in my back that poleaxed me following my return from BC last week....

I will keep you posted!

With Love always,
