An Open Letter to Whoopi Goldberg….We most certainly WERE Listening

Thank you Becky. I’m in Health Care too, a Technical Analyst that helps Nurses and Doctors and Instrument Technicians use software to improve patient care. I know first hand just how much compassion, strength and courage each nurse I’ve worked with posses and all the heart they bring to patient care and keeping the patient safe.

Sincerely, Melissa Blanchard Fairview Health Services in Minneapolis MN.

My first instinct and knee-jerk reaction was to sit down with my laptop and blast them with full force…unload my anger  and outrage onto the page…err…computer screen…so I could purge it and get all of that negativity out of my system. I’ll admit, I even got about a quarter of the way through that piece, when I stopped to re-read it. It was a scathing, searing diatribe that quite frankly, made me ashamed of myself.

Recommend – “My Words into the Beyond,” by Regina Puckett

Poetry at it’s best Check out “My Words into the Beyond,” by Regina Puckett

Melissa Blanchard Book Corner

I recommend – “My Words into the Beyond,” audiobook by Regina Puckett
The narrator, George Taylor, is the perfect choice for reading this audiobook of poetry.
His voice is deep and comforting as he tells Regina’s poems of life with all of the loves, dreams, disappointments and triumphs expressed so vividly.
So much of what I’ve experienced in life is communicated in the words of this book.
Thank you Regina, for finding a way to articulate so truly the human journey. It was beautiful to listen to over and over, every time finding something new to reflect on.
I haven’t read poetry for many years, I’m so glad I connected with you on Twitter (@ReginaPucket) and found your writing – so fresh – so true – so inspiring.
Keep on writing Regina Puckett.

This is a sad post – mostly. Too many cats and dogs in Greece lead a dreadful life and that’s why they are very shy, always about to escape, sick, hungry, feral and mistreated.…
