    God Morning,
    I like the typo, so I will let it stay. I write to thank you for the stop off at my latest little entry, which I have just revised and expanded a bit. It often happens that way. One writes something, sends it off and suddenly has another idea.

    I’ll now take a ramble through your work. May I say you certainly have a nicer nose and ears than mine.

    Would you consider using your poetry at high school and colleges? Girls/young women need to hear this from someone who speaks as clearly and beautifully as you do. Thanks for stopping by my blog, that’s how I found yours. Here’s to all of our sisters—All my Best, Barb

  38. WOW! I just watched your video.. This is just after watching the movie “A week with Marilyn”…I can’t help but be sad for those little girls who look at self worth through through the lense of our society and what it says is they “should look like” or be like.. He is a Father to the fatherless and close to the the broken hearted.. Great poetry! Keep it up!

  39. Hi, Nissi!

    Thanks for visiting my humor blog and leaving a “like.” I just watched the video. Both your poetry and the video are powerful and beautiful–what you are empowering women to be!

    Hello Nissi,
    Thank you so much for stopping by and liking my post. I love your latest poetry project: Spot on. In your post Do You love Yourself? you stated that love changes us in many different ways. I couldn’t agree more. The lack of love changes us also. I always get sooo happy when I see people using love on themselves so that they can love others.

  86. Nissi, thanks so much for stopping by my blog and liking my post this morning! Glad you did, as it helped me find yours. Lovely header, and I appreciate your courage in putting your poetry out there for the world. Keep it up!
