The next post is from poet and author Robbie Cheadle who share two stunning poems about women by South African poets Tatamkhulu Afrika and Roy Campbell... I am sure you will love them.

Here is a short excerpt from The Woman at the Till by Tatamkhulu Afrika

She had a plain, hard face,
A head thrusted forward like a hawk’s.
Impossible brass triangles,
Improbable steel manacles
Cluttered her thin arms.
Clearly, she had little love for the world:

And the final post today is from Jim Borden who shares the emerging research regarding money and longevity….

Money May Not Buy You Happiness, But It Does Buy You a Few Extra Years

Researchers at Northwestern University say that every time another $50,000 is accumulated by middle age, an individual’s risk of death drops by five percent. In addition, for those who had stashed $139,000 more than a sibling, their chances of outliving them increased by 13 percent.

  1. Thanks for sharing my Writer’s Tips Sal. And what great company I’m in today! I’d already read Jim’s great post, and always look forward to Diana’s reviews. And Robbie’s introduction to the work of two South African poets was fantastic. ❤
