For these rare occurances can be addictive, worst, when done repeatedly, becomes a bad habit.

So many blogs lined up for poetry or writing that I need to feature… Drum roll please….
This next blogger is, well, Simply Charming. She’s got great personality, friendly and approachable. And that there’s just so much Sunshine to her posts. She is a highly impressive writer, venturing out different approaches and style of writing a piece.
