Welcome to my world where time stands still and everything as you know it takes on a new meaning. Take off your shoes; relax. Let your mind wander with me.

I promise you’ll never be the same again. Consider this  “our” place, together let’s all weave a mean collage of  tales. Facts, fiction, mystery, comedy and good old fashioned lust and greed. Anyway you look at it, it’s  LIFE!

  1. 27 in July!! Nna, that is the stats of some people since the internet came out o!!
    Nice one here. You had all the posts hiding somewhere or how? Haba!
    Nice one jare. But seriously, I am not so sure it’s all about fantasy meeting reality. It’s lots more. Well done my sister. Keep them coming.

  2. @su’eddie, lol. Still learning this blog, thanks for taking a peek.

  3. You are doing good, keep it up

  4. Hey Dotta, thanks for your many kind words on my blog, I’ve promoted you to a1 top 🙂 cheers Don Charisma

  5. You have taken a very long hiatus on NS, but it’s understandable you have been fishing somewhere else…. I like your efforts on paranormal fantasy and folklore, Write for Black Letter Media and get them all.

    • Yes, I have been away from ther for a long while now. I do pop in every so often to see what is going on in the old stumping ground,lol
      You know as writers we always seek bigger challenges. I learnt a lot there, felt it was time to move on. There really was not much room for growth but they still are in mu opinion one of the best if not the best place for an aspiring or now writer to begin to showcase their ability. God knows you have enough willing critics there,lol

      • Yeah, you are right. Life is about moving on with life, so, where did you go? I can follow you if its more lucrative (I used to write on Triond.com, another told me to move the hell on to another more lucrative place, I am now a Yahoo Contributor Network writer).

  6. I hope you can join in on Project O! 🙂

  8. What a lovely introduction to your blog… I love it…

  9. The professor wears boots, though… 😉 Nice to meet you!

  10. Dotta,

    Been enjoying your comments on Project O. Thanks for putting smiles on my face.

    • Aww…welcome, welcome! I just checked out your place…seriously serious issue you have there. I know I’ll be stopping by often and thanks for the follow. Followed you right back!

  11. You’re one sweet gal. And so mature for one who looks like she’s all of 19 years. Looking forward to the mutual follow. And the Project O Fellowship of the Oxymoron, of course. (I fear that might have been interpreted to mean a moron with bull-like qualities. Not to be confused with a soxymoron, which is a dummy who never had bare feet. Okay, no more local vintage lager.)

    More smiles to come, clearly!



    • You kill me! lmao here…soxymoron. Methinks the local vintage is A-okay, but it sure is not the reason for such humor 🙂 More smiles to come definitely and 19 is such a good age to be right now!

      Take care of you.

  12. Will do.

    Seven kids – really?! I’m going to run and get a pedestal to put you on.

    Hmmmm …. I’ve have a post in mind for a little. Might have to work you in.

  13. Dotta,

    One of our Project O Commenters said she couldn’t find your email address and asked if I might help in this regard. If amicable, please drop me a line at themirrorbooks@gmail.com . Thank you.

  14. I mentioned you in my 5 September post on Disney’s movie “Brave.”

  15. I just dropped by to tell you how amazing you are with your wonderful comments on Project O…and I find myself not wanting to leave your blog now. You write beautifully! But seriously, I love how you make everyone feel so at home. Blessings

    • 🙂 You are too kind! My place is your place anytime.
      I forgot to mention that I love your blog name TRACESOFTHESOUL….shows exactly how the maze of the human soul can never fully be explored, it hold far too many wonders and mysteries.

  16. Re: Hemp seeds, I didn’t want to monopolize Project O’s section. when I’m low on iron I get lots of bruises, so Hemp seeds are a lot better than taking irons pills. I sprinkle it in yogurt, salads, soups…the powder comes in all sorts of flavours…good for smoothies.I used to order it online http://manitobaharvest.com/ but I found the seeds at Loblaws (superstores) and the powders at a health food store. There is even hemp butter…it’s not pretty (green) but tastes okay and no fat.

  17. Interesting and vivid introduction to Dotta! Thanks.

  18. Dotta thanks for taking part in Project O and for broadening the view point of the project just a little bit more. I hope the experience was what you were expecting and thanks again for participating! -OM

  19. Hey Dotta, I’ve awarded you a “Most Influential Blogger Award”, yay !



    Warm regards

  20. Welcome to my world where time stands still and everything as you know it takes on a new meaning.
    – Love that. Exquisite.

    Dear Dotta,
    I have launched the new series of discussion posts Let’s Talk Opinion. These posts will engage with issues close to other bloggers’ hearts, continuing the spirit of Project R. And in the spirit of Project O (how I miss it!) it is all about making connections with others and gaging opinion on a range of diverse topics.
    The way I’ve set it up: I find an article that has something interesting to say on an issue and then write a commentary giving credit where it is due, then invite others to give their opinion too.
    Will be scrolling through your posts for more material too, but meanwhile I wanted to let you know that you will be featuring in some of the discussions that I’ve picked up from Project O and thought of giving them some extra coverage. Two that come to mind now are the discussions about Black Pride and the Power of Media, but there are many more.
    Here’s the link to the article that launched the series: “You Will Be Offended”:
    Look forward to hearing your views 🙂
    Warm Regards,

    • Wow! What a fantastic concept…I like very much! I’ll take a peek this weekend. My little girl got some major dental work done this morning and I’m playing nurse to an irritated 7 year old…not great!
      I definitely think this will be a good one Vicki 🙂 well done!
      The title alone is welcoming,lol

      • So happy you like the idea. Will try to post a different one every day and see how it goes. Hope your little girl is coping ok with the post-dental work. It’s never pleasant – whatever the age. Have a lovely weekend 🙂

  21. Dear Dotta, I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award: http://shardsofsilence.wordpress.com/2013/11/02/the-versatile-blogger-award/
    Warm regards,

  22. Thank you for sharing useful experience and knowledge
