Seven things about Madeline Scribes:

1. Did you know we invite you to write for our blog as a Contributor? If you’d like to guest post or share any of your thoughts, please send us an email to and we will get you started.

2. Did you know that Madeline Laughs has been writing a blog since October of 2009? It’s hard for me to believe it’s only been four years because it seems like it’s been as long as I can remember.

3. I live in the EST zone.

4. I am good at crossword puzzles 🙂

5. I love cats!

6. Writing for me is therapy.

7. I’ve been to Burning Man 4 times and my last trip to the playa was after writing a grant for the Kinetic Kab Company.

Bman Green Man

 “Peering outward from behind a mottled screen of vines and leaves, the Green Man does not speak or sleep; he waits. His meaning and his origins are largely lost to time — the Green Man wasn’t named till 1939. We know, however, that this type of enigmatic figure was the work of artists, anonymous craftsman whose unsigned work adorns the crevices and walls of medieval cathedrals. This year we will appropriate the Green Man and the primeval spell he casts on our imaginations for a modern purpose. Our theme concerns humanity’s relationship to nature. Do we, as conscious beings, exist outside of nature’s sway, or does its force impel us and inform the central root of who and what we are?”

This concludes the seven interesting facts about Madeline Laughs.

  8. Thanks for giving a pingback to my story of Bob and how he helped James overcome his addiction. I see you are also a feral cat housemother… we had them all in our house so it became a game of where has Mum hidden her kittens from the other cats each day… which my kids who were younger then – loved – especially our daughter who was the one who ‘gave’ us the pregnant Mum…

    And ps you are good at a lot more than crossword puzzles, you are good at all kinds of puzzles and mysteries, including those of the human heart. Learning to look at all of the pieces with you and finding a place for all of them, even the ones that seem like they won’t fit at first, the journey is a gift. Sometimes it’s hard to look at. It’s good to have a friend with a strong hand to hold. I love you.


  10. Btw, I’ve posted your picks!


  11. Thanks for the recognition. This was a great way to start a Sunday.


I think it's so nice to see your thoughts! Please share!
