Among my used magazines was an out-of-date copy of O that I don’t remember reading.  As I skimmed through the pages I found some interesting directives for putting more joy into life.  This one especially caught my eye:  Play with the idea […]

My husband closed down his office after thirteen years and moved all of his accumulated books and treasures back home.  While sifting through a neglected box of books I found a little booklet pondering some of life’s important mysteries that had been gleaned from the Internet – which is, of course, the source of all […]

The Year in Review

What a whirlwind 2013 was for me!  I travelled many miles on business and for pleasure.  Some things worked for me – and some things did not.  I accomplished some goals while others slipped into obscurity.  Overall it was an exciting and robust year…and I wouldn’t feel as good about it as I do now […]

Where do writers get their ideas?

I’m at a writing conference this week: From Passion to Profit –learning about success strategies and how to become slightly famous. What I love most about writers conferences is the time in between when we gather for meals and conversation. This morning our breakfast conversation drifted from foods we love to strange foods we’ve eaten […]
