Living Powerfully

First of all, my apologies and thank you to those who let me know you were unable to comment on my blog posts. The problem is now fixed (I think). 🙂 Second, so many of my thoughts, perceptions, and long held beliefs seem to be in motion right now. If you can bear the rambling, here’s a snapshot of my […]

Gratitude on Overdrive

It’s the day after Christmas, and what a week! So many cool things: 1. My parents spent Christmas with us. They could have stayed home and enjoyed the company of my sisters and their families, and probably would have preferred the comfort of their own house rather than our little home, and yet they decided to get into their car […]

“No One Knows What They Need…”

This story has been popping back into my head a lot this week. It’s a true story, something that happened to my daughter/friend, Charity, or perhaps it’s more accurate to say, something she helped make happen because she followed her intuition. A year or so ago, Charity was finishing her last year of University. She’s also a mom with two […]

It’s Not About The Bait

I have a person in my life who really doesn’t like me. We’ve had a very negative relationship for some time, but because of people we mutually know, I can’t seem to escape him. At get-togethers, he baits me, usually by saying something judgemental or unkind. I feel I have to speak up, and because I’m usually right (or at least […]

Crushing It

The first thing that happened was that I started to pay attention – and I first noticed I kept slipping back into old ways of thinking. Instead of keeping open to All Things Are Possible (ATAP), I turned back to the Usual Things Will Happen (UTWH), and as we all know, when you think the usual is going to happen, […]

The Year of Living as if All Things Are Possible

Combining my optimism, hope, faith in the goodness of the world, and free will, I have decided to embark on a year long journey. I am going to live the next year with the view that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. My initial goals: to live as much as I can without past resentments and programing, to overcome fear, to achieve […]

Fun and Mind Games

I don’t normally find myself blocked from writing, so the last couple of days have been good for me. Haha! From a certain point of view, anyway. I’m trying to write the opening of the new novel I’ve been outlining. Though I haven’t completely finished the timeline, I do think it’s time to write something. Just a modest start, and […]

Epiphanies in the Night

A number of weeks ago, I promised a blog post outlining what I learned in Texas, and then I procrastinated. It’s not like I didn’t think about writing the post; I did, often. I also knew what I wanted to write. The words came to me in the middle of the night after being in Dallas for about two weeks. […]

Creating Gold

Travel seems to be on my mind lately. I don’t mean the how of travel, or the when, or the where. It’s not even the why, though that comes the closest. “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” — Martin Buber That kind of travel. The destinations that we don’t know we’ll reach, that we don’t […]

New Life

The other day, I did one of my very favorite things. I signed two contracts which will bring two of my juvenile backlist novels to three European countries. There’s nothing better than knowing a book you love will have another life, more readers, more influence, and give more pleasure to readers – unless it’s having TWO BOOKS being released! I’m […]
