So April Brown, we will spend our fifties arguing on the Internet. You continuing to post distorted sharing the real truth against the lies. What a waste of time. Wish we could just share a lunch and resolve our differences like professional adults. But too much water has passed under the bridge, I suppose. Life is too short for all of this. I actually do wish you well, and I respect your passion. I just wish it were directed toward something positive. Sincerely, Linda Ellis Continue reading

Shared this at a gathering about the cyberbullying/cyberstalking epidemic: Know that I am a different woman today, a different Cyber Citizen than I was before my experience with virtual terrorism. I was stalked and publicly degraded. I was defamed and... Continue reading
Her Turn copyright 2016 Linda Ellis There is an old woman who has always been here, since I breathed my first breath, she began to appear. Her gray hair arrived first, then a wrinkle or three, as she began to... Continue reading
Intersections by Linda Ellis, copyright 2016 This lifelong journey, an invisible map without a pre-determined route, a voyage plotted through twists and turns and decisions filled with doubt. Individually, we plot our paths and yet they still connect, for we... Continue reading

Leaves that Don’t Leave copyright 2016 Linda Ellis The more I experience life and nature, the more solutions I discover to explain issues that have plagued my consciousness. One of these solutions, oddly enough, is clearly exemplified in the act... Continue reading
I do, as the author, Linda Ellis love to share my my books, on my website, and on my blog. I ask if anyone wishes to share my inspirations (which I hope you do) with friends and family that you use the means we have installed on each...the share buttons. This way the work stays where it belongs and can still be shared with others through a link. As always, I love for any of my work to be recited anywhere at any time. Continue reading
