‘Truth’ – a Fickle finger – be careful where you point it!

Published September 8, 2014 by Laura Crean Author

Today I am beginning to explore the English language as I prepare to go back to school and study the beauty and art of its form – (I’m taking an English Language A level – gulp!)

As I followed all the twists and turns of the www. Super Highway, I stumbled across the college blog – http://parklanguage.blogspot.co.uk/ – and I loved this little poetic view of ‘truth’ by Emily Dickinson so much, I thought I would share it.

Emily Dickinson

“Tell all the Truth but tell it slant -
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind -“

Ahhh! Truth – that fickle finger of fact that has such a habit of bruising the heart or stroking the soul. Be careful where you point that finger people!

On with my journey…

Welcome to the garden everyone. The summer holidays are over and the children are back at school. I am starting college tomorrow and I am very busy planning my Children’s workshops which start in a few weeks time.
I am thinking about the changing seasons today, as I peeped in the garden and saw Todd Harris’s Four Seasons poem. Any seasonal poems are most welcome – just drop them in the well when you are strolling through the garden. Or maybe you would prefer to contribute a little flash fiction with a seasonal theme – that would be lovely too.

The writing projects that I am concentrating on at the moment are all about the children and are linked to my Children’s Story Craft Workshops starting this month. I am putting together a workbook to accompany my workshops, which is packed with writing tips for kids…

I haven’t posted on here for a while as I have been very busy. So I thought I would just let you know what I have been up to. First of all I have been working on a lovely new book for infants called Bepop and the Green Planet. I will hopefully be launching this book in October – so stay tuned. Bepop is a very friendly little alien who loves to help his friends and goes on a little adventure in his new spaceship to the Green Planet. He discovers just how important it is to have good friends.

Memories of Eastbourne and the Pier

Published August 2, 2014 by Laura Crean Author

I know I haven’t written a post for a while now, but this is because I am being very creative and spending my time working on my children’s projects, which I will share with you later. Today I have been thinking about my beloved Eastbourne and our wonderful Pier that has now been damaged by fire. I thought I would share some of my projects that include Eastbourne Pier as a little memorial to the way she was before the fire – enjoy…

My name is Coleman Weeks and I live in Southwest Florida. Over thirty years ago I developed Hepatitis “C’ .

About four years ago I grew tired and fatigued constantly. I worked as a manager of a retail outlet and had the knack of sales and customer relations. Times were tough in 2010 for sales, including retail and my company was firing most managers in my district. It was a common practice of the company to do strange things like not permit your vacation for whatever excuse they could conjure up and make you work on your one day off during your mandatory 54-work hour week. I averaged above 65 hrs. a week for over two-years. I could not get a vacation regardless of how much I begged and I quit to go get some sleep and start somewhere else part-time. I slept virtually non-stop for a month, but could not shake the…

<3 <3 <3 <3 Summer in the Garden <3 <3 <3 <3

Hello everyone. I’m sorry I haven’t been a presence here in the garden recently. I have been very busy in my real world garden, creating a ‘Fairy Garden’ for my little girl so that she can enjoy the summer out there on her trampoline and bring her friends round to play swing-ball and have water fights – the usual things children want to do in the summer holidays. We now have a very pretty garden, that is absolutely blooming! It has 2 water features, one a very pretty little fairy fountain and we have 2 fantasy villages – a fairy village and a gnome village. Oh yes and the dragon area that has 2 dragon ornaments, a mummy dragon and a baby dragon hatching out of his egg. It is so relaxing to sit…

A PAGE TURNER – 5 stars

This is one of the best fantasy books I have read for a long time…. It draws you in and is a page turner. I could not put this down and finished it in a day. Can’t wait for more like this from this author.

THE REALM OF THE PURPLE DRAGON by Laura Crean with 277 pages.

This was a fantastic fantasy book that brought reality into the realm of the imagination. It was fun, laughable, and a great read. A wonderful story that never became dull. It is a super great book for YA and for anyone who wants to remember what it is like to be young.

I loved the Purple Dragon who followed Ellenor on her quest that she slipped into while playing a video game. Ms…
