The Goat in the Moat

animal-graphics-goats-304919I have this idea for a fairy tale called “The Goat in the Moat” but I haven’t written it yet because I’m out of sorts these days. Not that I give a toss, but I quit my nursing job earlier this week. It was overwhelming. I worked from 6:30 AM to sometimes 5 PM or 6 PM with no breaks – no bathroom break, no meal break, nothing. I literally hit the ground running from the morning to the evening. Eventually I was bound to burn out. Didn’t think it’d be this soon, though. Then again, gout flared up aggressively in my legs and prevented me from zipping around the nursing home like I wanted. Also, the facility was unbelievably disorganized. It was just a disaster waiting to happen and I couldn’t bear it anymore. It really made me suicidal. In more positive news, this production company in the U.K. likes one of my songs called “Make A Big Noise.” I signed a contract today for them to market and produce the song internationally. I’m not wishing on any star, but I hope they can make it happen.

Discovery Park

Ever fantasized about living in the woods? Imagine sipping cold water from a flowing stream as Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Rumpelstiltskin play hide and seek in a glen just a few yards away. Of course, you might have to contend with the occasional ogre or troll, but with numerous cottages and heroes all around, you’d still be safe. Discovery Park in Magnolia gives you that warm fuzzy ‘Once upon a time’ feeling the minute you step foot in it. You stroll through quietly, almost anticipating the arrival of dwarfs, Hansel and Gretel or a dragonslayer astride a white horse. It could happen.
