Dorrie on Dr Dris (Mom) right and Wendy on left –  Karen Lee in her arms. Topeka, Kansas 1955

In memory of my mother, Dr Dris and baby sister, Karen Lee,

I am posting their words and poetry as if they were still here amongst us in body, if not in spirit.

Dr Dris was born 1933 and died May 7, 2009.  She has left with me a body of work that deserves to be shared.  I have always thought of her as a writer, and after reading her journal entries and work on her laptop, I know FOR A FACT, I was not wrong…please read her words, every chance you get!


Karen Lee, a full-time mother and poet died November 25, 2017.   She left a journal book called, “How to Feel – Take a Special Spiritual Journey into Thoughts and Feelings”.

Her words and poetry will be posted on this blog.

People who have known Karen online and had received her newsletters had much to say about her wit, her wisdom, and her poetry!
