Piece of Mind: It's Elemental

I Give You a Piece of My Mind: A finely sifted blend of poetry, prose and politics, reflecting on the integration of body, mind and soul... I am a woman who would not want to exchange her life for any other. I am 49 years young. I am very like the four elements: down to earth, receptive like the water, my soul dancing lightly as the air does; and I am full of fire and life. I love the life of the mind: I write about what matters and how I feel about it.

update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
