  2. That’s great, dear Joni….many congratulations to you…..lovely pictures of you…..keep expressing from your heart & sharing your wisdom….much love ❤️ ✨

  3. Excellent interview, Joni. Well spoken points of view. It’s so sad that you had to grow up in an abusive environment. It shows on your forlorn look in the photo of when you where a lovely young woman. You remind me of a sad Mona Lisa in that photo. You are lovely in the photo of you dressed in blue and red with your rose gold MacBook. Laurie had a rose gold MacBook that she loved dearly. We had to replaced it with a MacBook Air M1 because all the online teaching started overheating her MacBook to the point it would stop working until it cooled down. You are a strong woman, a kind and loving person. Your poetry is wonderful and you are loved by all of us in this blogging community.

    1. Thank you so much my friend Tim. You have made me cry but they are tears of joy. I was a senior in that picture. In fact it was my Sr. Picture. My husband said I looked like the Mona Lisa as well. You have touched my heart dearly Tim. I love my rose gold MacBook and rose IPhone.

      “Your poetry is wonderful and you are loved by all of us in this blogging community.”

    1. Thank you Tiffany you touch my heart which I do wear upon my sleeve. Thank you for your gracious comments about the photos. My husband always said I looked like the Mona Lisa.

    1. Thank you so very much. I don’t know why this was not in my reader. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments. Have an amazing weekend. xoxoxo Joni

    1. Oh thank you so much. Yes it is an honor indeed to be on the beautiful pages of Spillwords Press NYC Publication. You are very kind Shweta. Thank you so much. I am grateful to everyone who reads my work. I think we all
      just want to be read and heard. Sending you tons of love, hugs and blessings. ❤️🤗😘❤️🤗Joni

      1. It’s a great honour indeed. Do keep writing. Yes, I think we all want to be read and heard. Sending lots of love, hugs and blessings your way too 😍🤗🥰❤️😃

  12. I don’t remember seeing the picture of yourself with the blue top & red dress before when I first read this post. You look like a dainty fairy princess, no wonder you have so many fairies that you loan to others, they love you too!

    1. Oh my dear Janette you are so sweet. Finding time to read a post with everything you have been dealing with, such a truer friend was never known. I love you so much and miss you terribly. I so wish we could see each other more than every ten years or so. Hopefully within the next two years, think goodness for the phone. Sending you love and give the fairies my love, they will always live with you now, thank goodness I have many more that find their way here from the forest. Love you Janette xoxoxoxo Your forever friend, Joni

      1. I always have time for you sweet Joni & your poems. The fairies traveled with me to our cabin in Montana. It’s been hot, so they lick my skin while I’m outside, for salt & my vanilla lotion. They also are on watch for the griz sow & her twins in our area to keep us safe. Love you so much!!!

      2. Oh Janette for some reason this ended up in the pending comment file, I don’t know why. I am so grateful for you lovely comments, you know how much I respect your opinions. I am glad the fairies are keeping you more comfortable my sweet friend. They love you, they know we are related on a very deep level. They also love vanilla, if you are baking they will just turn the bottle over and help themselves. Please be careful my friend, I know you are incredibly brave but if you venture out too far from the cabin I hope you will be so careful and also that you go with your honey. The fairies can scream and sing high notes while flying around the grizzly’s ears but I don’t think that would save you. Scott just told me it is 121 in a part of Canada, the highest temperature in Canada. In the Tri-Cities it was 115 one day. Those climate deniers I wonder what they say about these temperatures. Love you Janette – be safe
