Original poems by Sandi – O’vehlu

Turn your eyes on me

the depths are as deep

as a root of

a tree

Reach out your arms toward

a love earth-bound

the trunk is silent

doesn’t make a sound

Bark, calloused, and weathered

skin shivers at the

slightest touch

Is this too much…

It’s just been a shitty day

I think this pic says it all… keep pushing forward. It’s also one of the most adorable pics I think I’ve ever seen. So, it fits perfectly for my Anchor episode: How much crappier can things get, but in the end, you simply can’t regret that you kept going, despite the urge to just give up. Many blessings folks, and keep on keeping on! Sandi

Hi folks!

My 7th section is now available on Anchor. This is day 7 of 36 of my book reading: Light and Dark; a Pause in Writing.

When I realized we were on a vast ocean of water, I panicked…

Click here, if you’d like to listen to the reading of section 7. Many thanks, and many blessings, Sandi.

Human Condition

Human Condition

Day 4 of 36 of my novella book reading: Light and Dark: a Pause in Writing, on Anchor.

Human Condition… We all live, breathe, feel, and deny it. And so begins the difficult telling of my first encounter with satan in my dreams. Stay tuned folks, and thanks in advance for the listen!

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Mind’s Chaos

Section 2 – Mind’s Chaos

Day 2 of 36 – my attempt at a book reading via Anchor podcast. Listen here!

Writing an autobiographical novella, isn’t easy – but a lot easier than writing a book. It was difficult, yet cathartic. This is section 2 of 36, day two of 36 days of reading each section on Anchor.

For those of you who are thinking about writing a book, regardless of the genre, know this: it won’t write itself. Keep on keeping on!

Many blessings, and thanks in advance for stopping by!

Podcast book reading: my autobiographical novella

Hi Folks!

I’ve been putting this off for a bit… ok, since I published my novella in 2017. The thought of doing an in-person book reading(s)/signing(s) terrified me. I self-published this book. I was the writer, editor, proof-reader, and I designed the jacket. This is my third book. My most important one. I decided to do a book read for the first time, on Anchor.

I’m loving recording my podcasts, and thought, well, why not? If not here, now, then when?

The next 36 days: book reading on O’vehlu podcast!

Join me on my journey! I will be posting (also here on WP) for the next 36 days, reading 36 sections in my novella; in case you find an episode title (section) of the book that might catch your attention.

Thanks in advance for stopping by folks!

I made a mistake

New podcast episode! Thanks for the listen!

Well, we all make mistakes right? When I record my podcast episodes on Anchor, I try to record only once. So, that accomplishes a few things: I get to be as authentic as possible – no script; I am able to feel relaxed, and under no pressure; I have a lot of freedom to say what I want/and/or need to say; and lastly, I hope to goodness I sound ok in the end! So, that being said, I correct myself in the description for my O’vehlu podcast, ‘I made a mistake’ episode. I could’ve redone it. But, I was outside, the crickets yammering away, and the near full blood moon, almost full… in two days. I was under a dark sky, with tons of smattering of stars, and the cat just hanging out, as if he were listening intently to every word, so no, I wasn’t going to re-record!

Here’s the pic of this amazing full moon event, with so many other planetary aspects going on at the same time.

Northern New Mexico skies: full blood moon & lunar eclipse coming soon: May 26, 2021

Apparently, there’s tons going on astrologically, but really, I think A LOT goes on all the time. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to spin around in freezing space, with tons of debris, moons, planets, exploding stars, black holes, dark energy, etc., in chaotic, sporadic, devastating speeds?

I prefer watching the moon, in my very small corner of my New Mexico, and just enjoy what happens in the space of seconds… I’ll leave it here!

Many blessings folks! Sandi

Why regret it?

What’s the difference between regrets and mistakes?

Click here to listen to my podcast!

Why make a decision or a choice, if ultimately, it may lead to regrets?

What’s the difference between a mistake and a regret? In my opinion… a mistake is when we do the best we can with what we had at that moment. A regret, is doing it anyway – there’s an inner voice – intuition, that will signal red flags. I’m learning a lot recently, from a family member who regrets a land deal that has played out in the last month, in some difficult and challenging ways.

Come on over and listen to my podcast and get more details… what are your thoughts on the difference is between regrets and mistakes?

Many blessings folks! Sandi.
