L.J. Holmes
In her many Guises.

Sunday, August 28, 2011


It was Reba McEntire's fault. Today they were doing a Reba McEntire all day music-a-thon. Okay, she loved Reba. If she didn't no way that song would have reached through all her years of wall building and found the one vulnerable brick to bring the wall crumbling down around her.

FANCY! The dang fangled video was like a photo finish of her own story. Ramshackle tar paper hut, but with a twist...it sat with the mansion where her grandparents lived out their miserly existence allowing their son and his young family to subsist in that shack.

FANCY! The last thing she wanted to be doing was pulling into the driveway beside the disintegrating mass of pain and moldering decay.

FANCY! Who needed these reminders? The sound of mice, rats and God knows what else scritching and scratching within the tattered wall and across the jagged floorboards raced up and down her spine.

FANCY! And that gawdawful mansion. She'd never been allowed inside the forgotten elegance she'd often looked towards with envy and silent fury in her youth.

FANCY! she needed to get back in her car and leave with the same determination to never return she'd had the minute she'd been able to.

FANCY! The wind...the wind could not really be calling her...could it?

Fabulous! And so not surprising you're donating proceeds on this one to a Women's Shelter. We love you, honey!

I will be donating the proceeds for this one, plus my October, November and December releases to The Providence House Woman's Shelter. They were there when I needed their strength to leave my abuser. Without them I know I would not be alive today.
