Dear fellow bloggers and readers, 

On our regular morning walk today, my little dog was attacked by a dog that broke free from its owner. In the process, I tried to break up the fight and get him into my arms, lost balance, and fell into the street.
I’m banged up and bruised but Thank God, no broken bones. Ricky Bobby aka Bubba, is now at the vet’s being prepped for surgery. He has several bites due to his fierce determination to protect me. If you’ve read my blog, you’ve heard of this little guy. He means the world to me.
You are all such wonderful people, and I am asking you to please say a prayer, send light and love, whatever positive vibes you believe in to my little guy.
He’s 13, but I’m not ready to lose him.
Praying for the best, Linda

Writing in the Dark


“While I’m writing, I’m far away; and when I come back, I’ve gone.”–  Pablo Neruda

In the darkest hours
when loneliness calls my name
stormy tears threatening
with thunder and lightning pain
and I refuse to see the torrential rain.
Instead, I pen sun soaked words
painting colors on my barren soul
basking in their glorious power
a shining light making me whole.

If I gathered each dewdrop glistening on the rose
put them to music and with my pen compose
a symphony of our souls, a song that holds the key
would you stay forever and listen to the notes
as we solve the mystery of how we came to be?

Pay It Forward Thursday- August 16, 2018

Come share your favorite read this week on Go Dog Go Cafe!

Pay It Forward 7-4-2018

The baristas at Go Dog Go Cafe are big fans of Pay It Forward Thursdays. We think it is a great opportunity to give a shout-out to another writer who has wowed us or creatively inspired us.  However, Pay It Forward Thursday has not been getting a lot of love lately, which we think is a shame. Dear reader, you are losing out on some great writing! We’ve decided to shake things up a little and the baristas will be reblogging our Pay It Forward picks for the week directly onto GDG Cafe so you don’t miss out on our favorites.

We like this idea so much that we will also reblog the posts you think were the best thing you read this week if you drop a link below. You are invited to post one link to one specific post (600 words or less please!) from someone…

The Path
And when she arises from her watery grave,
in a smoky swirl above the calm frigid lake
she walks with him along a familiar trodden path,
feeling his heavy sadness and hot bitter wrath
for being forsaken.
