Amidst these difficult times, may a new light, new possibilities kindle within you.
Is it my duty
To put on
A pretty face for you
Simply because I’m a woman
As though my life
Weren’t meant for more
Than the shadowy
As though my life
Weren’t my own
Beyond what a man
Would pay for
No my friends
That moment has passed
Of social sickness
At least in my mind
But what’s true for you
Do you buy and consume
The old bloody ruse
The sins of old
Designed to confine us
One from another
For very poor soldiers
Converts and subjects
Are meant for more
Than such trifles
In a muddled

Thanks for considering my gift book, “Sending You My Love,” to share your Love and Kindness in this world! Part of the profits also support women, children, animals, and communities in critical need of assistance through Project COLORS International Non-Profit Aid Society.
I’ve chosen Project COLORS as a recipient of my support for quite a few years now. It’s an AMAZING, small, aid organization that minimizes overhead to maximize the reach of our goodwill. They do an INCREDIBLE job of partnering with local aid organizations too; to find efficient, effective solutions that empower local people and leverage local knowledge.
I also trust the integrity of Project COLORS since I had the great joy of working with founder, Sunyata Choyce, many years ago for the United Nations down in the Dominican Republic. Since then, I’ve also had the chance to travel with her to Sri Lanka to support the initiation of funding and aid for children’s homes there.

Thanks for your likes, shares, reviews, purchases, and donations to help put a Smile on someone’s face today! I am forever thankful and awed by the power of Kindness and strength of Love!
