two of my little granddaughters have blogs. at the ripe old ages of 8 and 10, respectively.

i am so proud of them. they are learning to write, to express themselves, to be funny...and it just does my old heart good. i am a writer after all.

i began writing poetry when i was about 12.

i have the same hope for them- in addition to other things of course, and according to their natural "bents". no pressure.

but oh, the sweet sweetness of words.

so good to read what they write.

rock on, muffy and muffy! (both of their nicknames, strangely enough!)

Hi, Denie!

I'm so glad I stopped by. This post touches me. My youngest, who is 11, has his own website too. Isn't it amazing what kids do these days?

I began my poetry writing around the age of 12 also. That must be when we feel everything the most, no? When I look back on those first creations, it makes me laugh a little :) But, hey--we all have to start somewhere, right?

Blessings to you today!
