By the Mighty Mumford


I greeted a Christian neighbor,

Who came to ask a favor…

“Christ is risen indeed”–

Her comment hit me–

Did she think all this poor vapor?

Her comment was sad and slow,

“Yes, but a long tome ago…”

Tired perhaps,

Or a lapse

Of enthusiasm…I don’t know!

Top 5 Fort Lauderdale: What You Can’t Miss

Mary in Manhattan

My bro and I took a trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida in December. You know, during that limbo between Christmas and New Year’s’ Eve? Well, we escaped from the Northeast and had three days in the sun. There’s a lot to do in Greater Fort Lauderdale, and we really packed it in, including a spontaneous trip to Miami – they are only about 45 minutes apart. That post shall come later on. But first…lovely Lauderdale.

If you book a trip to Fort Lauderdale, here are my top 5 fun things you can’t miss:

1.  Water Taxi

The Water Taxi is for the use of locals as well as visitors. Let me tell you, I could totally get used to it – sure beats the NYC Subway. It’s a sizable ferry with a top deck full of seats. Up there, a tour guide lets you in on what you’re seeing…

In my twenty-four years of existence, I can say I’ve met a good deal of people from many walks of life. Some passed by and walked on without a backward glance. Some graced me with their fleeting presence and left a mark I can never erase. Some said goodbye too soon and crossed to another world before I got the chance to tell them how much they mattered. Some keep me company after all this time and we grow together into who we are now.  Some…

Almost there!

No excuses

It’s three days left of this month of March, and I’m o thrilled, excited and a little bit nervous to be so close to the end of my novel. I’m almost there and the song “Almost there” from the animated film “The Frog Princess” is on my mind right now.

I can’t wait to see what the next three days bring to my working novel. After this novel, I will start on another novel in April and I’ll be posting my chapters up on Wattpad and my blog. So stay tuned for that!

“I think that First drafts are so over rated.”

It’s like what they say, how hard work and determination pays off. Sometimes it feels like praying to God, asking for his help, is like wishing on stars. Yes, God will help you, but YOU have to do some of the ground work first. It’s no use to…
