My Workspace

This is my little workspace. On the other side of the curtain there are flowers growing in pots along the windowsill. I love the long pot of geraniums because it reminds me of the windows and balconies in Paris. I write poetry longhand in a red (currently) Moleskine which I carry everywhere with me and then I come back to this table and do my entry work and editing. My Wi-Fi is my outlet to a world which is distant yet always there in my heart.

It's out there like a dream that's no longer a dream!

I suppose you have dreams you'd like to see come true, I guess we all do. Well mine, as of a few days ago, finally came true. A book I've been working on for some years now is in print (in the electronic sense). Don't you just love it when things finally quit being just a daydream. Think about something you would like to realize in your lifetime and then look at my book of poetry and know you can do what you wish for. Here's a short discription of what the book is about: This book of poetry explores the myriads of different personalities within each of us as we adapt ourselves to external and internal conditions. The concept of moods really doesn’t offer us the self-awareness we need to understand who we are. This is a collection of published works and earlier poems that fits this theme. If you would like to see more you can Google Book of Aliases, Russell H. Ragsdale and you will find some links. It is an e-book and is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, and Sony. I'll let you know of more outlets as they offer it.
