Image Dear Sharon....
By Nancy Polanski on October 3, 2016

Dear Sharon, I just heard the news about you. You left this world yesterday and I didn't have a chance to say goodbye. I am sorry for that, but I am comforted to know that your passing was rather sudden so that you had little or no pain. I'm also comforted to know that before you left, you shared a positive thought with our friend Vic. You texted her that "God's got this." Indeed, He does. You know, you are the mainstay of Cubits. Week after week, your cubit has been the most read, or at least in the top three. When there was good news to share, your chat thread carried it to the world. When anyone had a problem, they turned to you. You always had a listening ear and wise advice. We all respected you and valued your opinion. How is it that you made every one of us feeling like we were your best friend? What a special talent you had for making and keeping friends. I really don't know what will happen next. Will the Blue Gardens cubit remain? Will your weekly quotes continue? We can all try to keep things going, but for such a little lady you had some pretty big shoes to fill. It just won't be the same around here without you, sweetie. I love you. Now would be a good time to re-post your Spotlight interview. I think we'd all like the chance to spend a few minutes feeling close to you today. So here it is. I'll see you again someday, dear friend. Love, Nancy

We're turning our Spotlight this week on a very talented English gentleman who just happens to make his home in Japan. I know you'll love reading about our friend, Pajonica. We've known him since Cubits first opened its doors in 2010 and he is not only very talented in many areas, he's also a gentleman, a kind and gentle man, in every sense of the word. Let's get to know Jon.

Image Remembering Polly: Spotlight: Polly Kinsman (Pollyk)
By Sharon Brown on April 23, 2015

*** We lost a beautiful friend this week, we knew her as PollyK. She left us with lovely memories and beautiful images of plants she loved most. If you ever had a question about Irises or Lilies, she was the one to ask. I thought it would be appropriate if we published her Spotlight article again. *** Getting to know new people is fun and exciting. Getting one of your best friends to be in the Spotlight is somewhat interesting. Not that there was any bribery involved, but she knew very well I could have told her story without her help. But that's my friend Polly, low key, cordial, very helpful, and very, very knowledgeable. I want you to get to know her, too, because she is the one to go to if you want to learn more about Irises and Lilies. Let's meet Polly Kinsman . . .

By Nancy Polanski on August 20, 2013

(We lost a very good friend today, August 20, 2013. Two years ago we published this article, an interview with Cherie. We knew her as Cece and she charmed us all with her humor, her gardens, and her down-to-earth but uplifting attitude. I thought it appropriate that we read her words again, just as Nap presented them to us those years ago. Rest in Peace, Cece, you always left us with a smile and we will long remember you. ~ Sharon) From Nap in 2011: When I wrote requesting an interview with her, Cece told me, "I just never saw my life as ever being anything but ordinary. What's the word I want .... Mundane." She took just a little coaxing before I convinced her she would make a good interview. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Cherie Coogan....

That is what Cubits was designed for ...diversity...where a site's owner could present their interests in a safe and controlled environment. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to know about this site and the woman behind it. Here is her response in her own, very well expressed words.

Our Spotlight guest this week goes by the name Wildflowers. In her words, I sense sweetness and a joy in simple pleasures. In her eyes and her smile I see a healthy sense of humor. And woven through her life are threads of sadness, which have produced an inner strength and an attitude of gratitude. I think you'll like meeting Christine!

Image Spotlight: Sally Hazen (billyporter)
By Sharon Brown on May 9, 2011

"And she will spread smiles wherever she goes..." I really have no idea where I found that phrase, but it truly fits my friend, Sally. I've been on many chat threads with her over the years and whenever I see a post from 'billyporter', I rush to get my daily smile. It's a little like following the ice cream truck, you know when you catch it, you'll find a sweet treat.

Image Spotlight: Cheryl Byers (Cajuninky)
By Nancy Polanski on May 2, 2011

When I asked our guest this week if she would allow me to interview her, she agreed. But she said this in her reply, “I'm busy up potting some seedlings right now. I also want to get another planting bed finished and I hope to get some corn and mangles put in. Still have the horses to feed also so I'll get started on this tonight.” I laughed!! I expected her to finish by telling me she had no time to write!

By Sharon Brown on April 25, 2011

Everybody knows Herbie. We've known him for years and we've cried and celebrated right along with him through many family events, both his and our own. But I thought maybe there might be something yet to learn about this most caring, amicable family man. Let's take a look at what he has to say.

By Nancy Polanski on April 18, 2011

By Sharon Brown on April 11, 2011

My grandmothers taught me to make do with what I had and that's what happened with this week's Spotlight article. I simply had to make do with what I had. Join me for a Spotlight that's just a little furry around the edges.

Image Spotlight: Dahlianut
By Sharon Brown on March 28, 2011

Capturing Dahlianut is a bit like chasing a beautiful red butterfly in the midst of a garden filled with red roses. We can occasionally come close, but most often the butterfly is hiding behind the roses, dancing on their petals, and fluttering just above our heads. Luckily I've known her for several years, so I knew what I was in for when I asked her for an interview. I'd like you to meet this lovely friend of mine.

Image Spotlight: Sheri Weldy (Sjweld)
By Nancy Polanski on March 21, 2011

I became familiar with Sheri over at the Playpen of Graphics Jigsaw Puzzle Forum. Some of the puzzles Zany made were of Sheri's budgies, beautiful birds that she talked about as if they were her family. We puzzlers are a close-knit group, and I started to get attached to them too. So it was a delight for me to chat with her for this article.

Our interview this week is with Dorothy Mitchell, who owns several cubits and a store which sells painted gourds, jams, jellies and handmade crafts.

Image Spotlight: DesertPirate (Randy Lowe)
By Sharon Brown on February 21, 2011

You might call him Pirate or maybe you know him as DP and sometimes he answers to Randy. I usually reserve 'Randy' for those times when I feel the need to yell at him for one thing or another, not often, mind you, just sometimes. He's been a good friend for several years and I probably could have written this article without his help but I thought if I did he might just start yelling back at me. I'd like you to meet my friend, Randy Lowe.

By Nancy Polanski on February 14, 2011

We asked Cubits members to recommend names of people who we might approach about being interviewed. One name we received was Mistirose. Until recently, all I really knew about her was her unforgettable avatar. (Check it out!) I was curious to meet the person behind the “Kiss.”

Image Spotlight: Susie Williams (Aguane)
By Sharon Brown on February 7, 2011

People fascinate me, that's why I love doing Spotlight articles. My friend, Susie, is no exception. We grew up at about the same time but worlds apart. If Susie and I had traded places, I wonder how we would have functioned in each others environment. Yet here we are today with many of the same values, similar characteristics, matching dreams and the same goals. Life is funny like that, I think. Now let's meet Susie...

By Sharon Brown on January 24, 2011

I didn't know Happy Jack was the name of a town in Arizona. I only knew that it was the name of an online friend and the name made me smile every time I saw it. Even knowing it's the name of a town, I still smile when I see my friend's name. I think you will too, after you read about her.

By Nancy Polanski on January 17, 2011

The first Spotlight of 2011 is on Plantladylin! Lin has impressed me by the kindness she exhibits in her posts here on the Cubits website. What I have come to learn about her through this interview is just how genuinely sweet she is. In fact, I joked that if you look up the definition of 'sweet' in the dictionary, you will probably find a photo of Lin Vosbury.

I have a lovely friend who inspires me with every word she writes. She paints pictures with her words and takes us on trips through sunrises and snowfalls.

By Sharon Brown on October 25, 2010

Sometimes we meet a friend and we know within a heartbeat that our lives have been made better. It doesn't matter that we've never seen our new friend face to face, it only matters that the value of the friendship begins to evolve. Remember the old song "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better..."? Well, it was almost like that at the beginning, but I think I need to tell you the whole story so you'll understand.

By Sharon Brown on October 11, 2010

A little more than a year ago on a comment thread attached to one of my articles on medicinal plants, I met a man from England. His response to my article was valid, he knew what he was talking about, and since I wrote of plants that grew in the Appalachian mountains, I wondered how a man from England could know so much about a Kentucky wildflower. Read on, because that certainly isn't the end of the story.

I didn't even know what Plumeria was. I was writing articles about plants and I thought I knew everything there was to know about them until a lovely lady also began to write about Plumeria. Her articles were filled with photos of wonderful blooms, the likes of which I'd never seen before and I was filled with awe. As I got to know her a little better, I found a friend who is as awesome as her flowers. I'd like you to get to know her, too. Let's meet Hetty Ford.

I've met so many new friends in Cubits, and one of them is a wonderful lady who creates images of flowers using the computer.

I not only admire her work, but I truly admire the person who creates it. I thought you might like to meet her.
