Earth laughs in flowers…

Today’s been one of those days. You know days when you have accomplished so much and yet you feel as if you completed nothing. Well, it’s been one of those days. I started out with a good day at work, finishing everything on my to-do list before heading for home. On the way, I stopped to speak with Borders representative and made an appointment … Read More Earth laughs in flowers…

Full moon and good deeds…

When I started this blog I wondered “What will I say?” “How do I express myself in the way that will be profitable not only to me but to my readers?” Writing is a big responsibility. Yet, like I’ve said before its also a great privilege. I try to remember that every single day. It’s the joy of simple things that makes the world … Read More Full moon and good deeds…

Random Acts of Kindness…

Do you know what this world is missing? Random acts of kindness. Today I was a recipient of such a phenomenon and it absolutely made my day. Early in the morning my manager decided that she wanted breakfast. As I was walking to my office she came up to me and said, “I was looking for you.” while reaching into a McDonalds bag. Pulling … Read More Random Acts of Kindness…

The meeting was running late. So much to doand I was stuck listening to some guy talk aboutpointless things. The room was long with an oval tablein the center. Most of the company’s heads werepresent and listening to well-dressed man babbleabout naught. If there was a point to his presentation,I wouldn’t have minded. But this Mr. whatever-hisname-is really knew nothing about his topic. Iglanced … Read More Chapter 1…preview

Words are magic…

I just want to say thank you to my new followers. It was such an amazing encouragement to get online today and read the comments posted! I actually cant believe that my words would interest anyone. Yes, I have published a book. Yes, I know many have bought and read and loved it. Yet, at the same time I am still amazed that I … Read More Words are magic…

Life…

The list can go on and on forever. The smallest things that make life worth living. Simple things. Those are the real reasons why this world keeps turning. God gives us exactly what we need, when we need it. But the true beauty of a soul is the ability to love the simple things in life. To appreciate the small parts of the big … Read More Life…

Attack…and smile

So I spent a good hour and a half looking up blogs and bombarding bloggers with my comments. Hmmmm… lets see if anything will come of that. I have to say that this whole promotion thing is a bit difficult. I wish there was more I could do, but with limited time and resources, its hard. On the other hand, today was a beautiful … Read More Attack…and smile

Clouds…

Today is a beautiful day! Call me strange but I love the fact that it’s stormy and rainy outside. The world seems so poetic when everything is gloomy. It is the best time to snuggle underneath the covers with a good book and a cup of coffee. It is a perfect atmosphere for gothic writing. The big dark castle stands on the edge of … Read More Clouds…

Simplicity…

So pure. So clean. A Father’s love. The Lord Almighty. A small butterfly fluttering in the wind. A quiet brook running over smooth rocks. The leaves whispering secrets in the breeze. The clouds making castles in the sky. The warm sand covering your toes. The smile of a friend. The smile of a stranger. The quick hug in a middle of a crisis. A … Read More Simplicity…

But words are things…

…and a small drop of ink,Falling, like dew, upon a thought, producesThat which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think. – Lord Byron Words are power. Words are tools. Words can make or break. Being a writer is such an amazing privilege. I never imagined that I would be able to write. I know everyone writes, but not everyone has the privilege of being heard. We … Read More But words are things…

The simple things…

Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne Hawthorne got it in one. He was a man who knew how to use words to his advantage. Truman Capote, of McCall’s, said in November of 1967, “To me, … Read More The simple things…
