Pamela's Daybook: April 15

Today: I have an appointment with Rhonda today. She works therapeutic magic on my neck and shoulders. Shopping for a gift for a friend.

At my writing desk: Isaac Singer said, "The waste basket is a writer's best friend." The delete button is mine. I've overused it lately.

In the mail: An oversized postcard with a bio of Marianne Moore, an American poet. Diana used four stamps, including a 10 cent Robert Frost.

Praying for: Emma, Jonathon and Emily's foster daughter. Selfishness always hurts the innocent.

Thankful for: My lunch with Eleanor yesterday.  We may or may not have have visited for two and half hours. No doubt about drinking too much tea.

Creating: Does buying paper feathers count?

I'm reading: Half way through "Love That Boy." Started "When a Woman Finds Her Voice: Overcoming Life's Hurts and Using Your Story to Make a Difference" by Jo Anne Fore.  She talks about her fears, doubts, and insecurities sparkling much brighter than her trampled tiara. 

Postmarking: Made my five.  I'm almost done with cards for the week, but I have some letters to write.

Favorite quote: "Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking" (Naomi Wolf).


  1. I like those paper feathers, what will you do with them? I enjoy snail mail like you do, and yesterday some postcards arrived that I bought on Amazon, packs of 20 Keep Calm fun postcards, and 25 vintage postcards from 1900-1940. Just thought others might like to know about that source.

    1. Awesome! I love vintage. I'm waiting for note cards from Amazon -- coloring notecards. Thought that was unique. I'll probably put the feathers in the cards of people who do paper crafts. Maybe write a quote on the back of some, and use them on bookmarks.

  2. I really like your Daybook format! (I think I've caught up...) I looked and looked for your piggy envelopes. Did I miss them? Have a blessed weekend, Pamela.
