  It was the sort of awakening that occurs when a phone’s ring interrupts a deep sleep–the kind that if needed, propels one into motion, only there was no phone ringing, I simply felt called. Less than 20 minutes later I was checking in with the night secu

During the cold, dreary winter months, I keep depression away by planning every detail of my family’s summer adventures. From our annual family reunion/ beach week, romantic weekend getaways, writer’s retreats, daytrips to amusement parks and motorcycle ru

This is a fictional piece which captures the persona of a woman whose life and spirit I admire and value so much.     Multi-faceted, passionately aloof woman, lover of foreign accents (or bad copies of same), known to do stand-up comedy in front of doze

Dear Women on the Verge Community, For those of you I have had the honor to come to know, you are aware that the bulk of my work is dedicated to teen relationship awareness with an emphasis on preventing relationship abuse. This year I have been really str

  Before I saw your face or touched your fur I heard your cries for help, longing for love So loud your anguish I knew where to go So deep your despair you didn’t know me   For a home of your own, all hope was gone Tossed out by family to fend for yoursel

When the stress got too much And the burden too great A dream I created To help me through life The black hole was too deep To my soul it did go For myself I had lost Clinging tightly to life http://www.martamoranbishop.com/10/post/2012/12/the-car

I saw you while you watched your love But a moment it was, a glance I seized like a common thief, snapping a photo without permission. As soon as I did, guilt left me stricken. You’re an opportunist, I thought, Always sniffing out the raw, the real, Feathe

Kindness is in your eyes The touch of your hands Sweet breath of life given Heartfelt hope is shown A smile and a laugh Shared merriment too Nice are the words you speak Gentle is your touch Encompassing soul The fire in your eyes Is joy brough

Loving ones country isn’t about which political party, religion, race, or gender you are or belong to. It isn’t about whether you were able to serve in the military or not. It isn’t about whether you are from the upper 1%, the middle class, or the poor.

I care not what your race is for we all come from the same foundation. I care not what religion you practice, for all paths lead to the same source. http://www.martamoranbishop.com/3/post/2012/10/what-do-you-care-about.html

Dear body of mine, Haven't you and I struggled? We became enemies. I know it's not your fault, you just grew, did what you were supposed to do. But boy, did I hate those looks, the old perverts who wanted a slice of you. They made me feel dirty, I wanted t

What a day it's been. What a week, a month, it never stops. Today I did something I never expected to do. I've been strutting my stuff. Ahem. I won't say much more. If you follow a certain S.E. Lauran on Facebook, you'll know more than enough. Thanks dear!

I am not a big fan of keeping animals in confinement. Our horses are free to run in their fields able to come and go from their stalls at will. We feed them, love them, and tend their hurts. Our cats do not go outside; there are too many humans who delight

A few weeks ago a woman knocked on our door. She wanted to confess that her fiancée had driven her into our driveway and parked in order for her to visit with our horses. They had just found out that he had an incurable rare lung disease. The only thing po

I cannot go through this month talking about furbabies without telling you about the Cavalia. It is produced by the same people who gave us Cirque Du Soleil. There is nothing that I have ever seen that can come close to showing the depth of the bond that i

A few months ago I read this quote, “Just when things look like they are falling apart, they may actually be falling together. During stormy times we sometimes feel like we are losing everything. Maybe this stormy time is waking us to something better.” I

Funny, in the month here on the Verge, when we are to talk about the mean girl stereotype I am all done talking. I have lived with it far too long and divorced it from my life. If it is a family member, who is the culprit I have removed them from my life

So much has happened over the last few years, that I sometimes find that I am reeling. Trying to hold on to tightly to what I have, for fear it also will be lost. In the space of two years, I lost my fiancée of twenty years, the week before the wedding.

I hope you will stop by my blog,honeylazar.blogspot.com, and meet Aunt Ruth.   Six years ago, I asked Aunt Ruth if I could photograph her for a book.  I have no idea where the notion of "book" came from, because I just wanted to take her pictures as a way

This month of sisterhood has taken me through the depth and breadth of what women can be to each other and what they should not be. Next weekend I will be flying up to say goodbye to my sister, who is dying of cancer. The doctors have given her maybe a few

I’m not ready to lose my sister, Not one kind, nor gentle part of her, The years of memories wash through me. The world will lose such intelligence, Laughter, gaiety and kindness too, When her light is gone and flame burned out. I want
