Hats Off! to Brenda Kay Ledford whose poem "Reagan's Rain Boots" appears on Creative Inspirations.


Hats Off! to Judy Goldman who was featured in the Charlotte Observer. Judy's new book is Together: A Memoir of a Marriage and a Medical Mishap. "There are many different versions of a marriage," says Judy. "It’s the same husband and the same wife, but each person is constantly evolving into someone new. And not necessarily cuter. Or thinner. Or tidier. I believe we just need to pull way back, see the wide, wide picture—and keep creating our marriage as if we’re starting from scratch."
