About Shyflower

Shyflower is the blog of retired copywriter, Linda Jenkinson. It's a simple blog wherein I write about the things I care about: family, writing, the web, health, and the environment.

If I Can Stop One Heart from Breaking

  • If I can stop one heart from breaking,
  • I shall not live in vain;
  • If I can ease one life the aching,
  • Or cool one pain,
  • Or help one fainting robin
  • Unto his nest again,
  • I shall not live in vain.

Emily Dickinson

I love all kinds of animals and in Pets, I share my experiences with dogs, cats, tortoises, and other reptiles.

In Reflections, I write mostly about those taboo subjects, religion and politics. So if you can stand strong opinions, take a look. I'd love to hear what you think, too.

Also find some of my original creative writing in the topics of Poetry and Fiction. Again, I look forward to seeing your comments on all topics.

You can also find things I care about on my Facebook author page (Shyflower) my Twitter, @shyflower and my Quora profile.
