Answering the 11 Questions I was asked:

When did you start blogging? I started blogging quite a long time ago. At first, I had just one blog on Blogger and since writing and creating poetry are my passions I soon discovered WordPress and chose to make three theme blogs. On Animals are Wonderful I began as wanting to write about all kinds of animals. However, soon it became my darling cat Sid’s blog as he seemed to just take over. He is such a character. Sid and I are always looking for inspiration so perhaps in time, we will also write different animal posts. I also have a music blog on Blogger http://musicisajoy.blogspot.com/2018/02/crazy-little-thing-called-love.html

  1. What keeps you going and motivated? Well mostly it is my passion for writing and for interacting with all my online friends. It is a real thrill to get online and read that people have enjoyed what I have shared with them. I often get inspired by other people’s blogs as well.


  1. What is your weirdest habit? I don’t think I have a habit that is really weird but I do collect odd things like bird feathers and rocks along the roadway.


  1. What is your favorite cuisine? Personally, I love all kinds of food. It is hard to choose because I love food as long as it is delicious. One of my top favorites is pizza.


5.What are the first three things you notice about a person? I notice the way they look, if there is genuine warmth in their eyes and if they sound like they are the kind of people who really are glad to meet you.

6. How do you deal with negative comments of people about your appearance or anything else? Right now I am totally alone and there is no one to comment about me.

7. Rasma is a typical Latvian name and it derives from rasa which in the Latvian language means the early morning dew on the grass.

Don’t Bother Me

Spring 2017 018

Groundhog Day has come and gone,

that nasty groundhog –

said six more weeks of winter.

So don’t bother me,

on my favorite chair, I’ll be.

When spring comes creeping over the windowsill,

the birds in the blooming apple tree,

will begin their song

and then happy I’ll be.

Till then of that time I’ll dream –

remember not to bother me!
