What’s This All About

My parents never talked about their childhood. They grew up during the Great Depression, so you’d think there’d be lots to tell. But my kids never asked about my childhood either, and I suspect my grandkids never thought that I was a kid. Nana was just always old, that’s what they’ll think.

And that’s why I’m writing this. One day, I’ll hand this collection over to my grandchildren so they’ll know that I was once the same size that they are. That I thought just like they do. That I went to 1st grade, and that their great grandmother put chocolate chips in my peanut butter sandwiches. Stuff like that – it can fill up pages.


As a gardener, I love this one! You’ll find lots of fun medieval illustrations in these stories.

The eternal battle against snails.

The images are from newly digitised medieval manuscripts from The British Library Medieval Manuscripts Archive: Illuminations, and The French National Library, and Fitz-William Museum, Cambridge, and The Morgan Library & Museum. All are in public domain and fair use.

I think they are delightful fun.

Misky writes every day, and has been known to stick her poems on fence posts. She lives in the UK surrounded by flowers, grapevines, and jars of stuff.

She never buys clothing without pockets.

Her poetry and photography are widely published. This publication might occasionally be poetic, but it’s not poetry.
