I always love to Meet and Greet new Artists sharing their work of art and their beautiful words!

It is getting very difficult every week to choose just one of you! But I am doing it from over 40 weeks! ❤
When I made my first Feature post I was thinking to do this only “Once a month”, and since that first time I did this every single weekend! ❤

Note: I just want you to know that I don’t pick random Blogs to Feature here, when I do my pick I am looking at specific things that I admire and are Inspiring and motivational to me and for others!

Today I am very happy to introduce you with Marissa Bergen
I actually had the privilege to meet her in person few weeks ago on November 6 while I had a Bloggers meet up here in California with our friend Erika Kind visiting from Lichtenstein Europe, and some amazing ladies one of them was Marissa. My fellows here on WordPress sure remember all of our posts. For the new fellows that missed, this is the link to my post “When Bloggership Meet…we did!  we had a wonderful experience and meeting Marissa was great! She has a great Blog is a writer and a rock  mom…since also play the Bass in her family band! Marissa has the ability to write poems fulfilled with creativity and fantasy and one of her great ability is to ends her poems with a unexpected twist…and some of them can be totally hilarious like the one she wrote after our meeting. I will post it here to give you an appetizer of her fantasy be prepared to laugh, I couldn’t stop when I read it! :-))))

Blogger Girls1  copy(Photo In order from left: Corinne, Me, Ms. Erika Kind and Marissa)

To Find Ms. Kind

It started out a day just like any other day
Blue skies, pleasant temperatures, typical L.A.
But this Friday was special as I was psyched to be
Meeting soon at Starbucks, a group of bloggers 3.

For a wholesome day of fun, coffee, gossip, laughter
With Erika Kind, Corinneonline, Carolina at Yesterday After
All the women were so sweet starting off you see
But I don’t remember much after sipping my coffee…

And the next thing you know, well, the scene was quite outrageous
My head was pounding as I woke in a hotel in Vegas
Corinne was sprawled out on the couch and starting to come round
Carolina on the floor, Ms. Kind was nowhere found

Strange clothing strewn across the floor, emptied bottles of booze
A gap where I once had a tooth, Corinne had new tattoos
And in the other rooms we found a tiger and a baby
Plus little Wayne, Wayne Newton and of course, Wayne Brady

But as for Erika,we’d no idea what we should do
‘Til looking out the window, we came cross our fist clue
For what did we see flying high as we were sitting there
Hanging from a monument, Erika’s underwear

And then we all did realize it was our mission then to find
Erika in time to get her back to Lichtenstein
And we would do all that we thought we could do in our power
To get her on that flight which was to leave in just 10 hours

Our mission was before us, and it was do or die
We pondered perhaps she was kidnapped by some Asian guy
But despite our best efforts there was no way to retrieve her
So we asked Mike Tyson but he hadn’t seen her either

Time was getting closer and still we had no luck
We’d have to call her family and say disaster struck
And just as we were bout to put the phone up to our ears
We heard Erika’s voice she said “Hello ladies I’m here”

We looked in disbelief sure her image holographic
But she said “It’s really me, I just got caught in L.A. traffic!”
And we said “Oh gosh you drove here? well you really are insane
At 6PM on Friday you should have just got on a plane!”

And so it seemed that Erika would safely make it home
And the rest revealed itself inside Corinne’s iPhone
With pictures so embarrassing we all squirmed in our seat
And with no time to spare we all just quickly hit delete

And no one will find out what went on, that we all did swear
Or what the heck was up with Erika’s flying underwear
And the only picture that we all agreed to show
Is the one that I am posting right here down below

Just four normal bloggers who you see are looking awfully
Happy when they thought that they should all meet one day for coffee

Blogger Girls

Now I hope that you all still laughing and had fun reading and travelling through Marissa creativity!
So if you want to have more fun and great reading please go to visit her Blog!

 

Have a great week!

dreamsToday I am more than happy actually I am truly honored to be able to introduce a freshly new Blog and Feature here on yesterdayafter.com a Hero like Nick.

Someone that I admire and consider a great example and an amazing Soul. Nick is conquering his journeys pushing himself to the limits, turning his life upside down after it was almost taken away from him.
Having hope and believing that “Dreams can come True” .
In 2009  Nick was left for dead, stabbed through the brain in an unprovoked attack that caused his life to change. My followers maybe remember my mention about this when few weeks ago I featured Sue Vincent which is Nick mother. I was so touched when several months ago I came across Nick story and miraculous journeys, how he is overcoming the result of this horrible attack that influenced his life. Nick was told that recovery was unreal and that he would never walk again and be independent. This year Nick participate to a Triathlon race and archived many other great things.

p1160456
Walking again!

The immense strength, determination and will power he has is an amazing message of Hope and to “Never give up” because dreams can come true if you truly believe in it.  Congratulations Nick for all your achievements and for being what you are! Thank you for giving us an amazing message and great inspiration.
