Beauty and style…through the eyes of one approaching the big 5-0

The first month of 2015 is nearly gone, and in this first month of a new year I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on things.

I’m not one of those who set resolutions each year, but rather I am one of those who do sit back and think about my life and where it’s heading.

As I age, I find that the things that once mattered to me are no longer on my radar. Sometimes, those things that mattered still do…but they morph into a different type of “things that matter.”

Take beauty and style, for example. (more…)

Remember to unfold your wings

Spread your arms out wide and soar on a gentle wind.

Rudy Simone – I Saved Your Space

I just stumbled upon this artist and felt the need to share her talent here on my blog. If you like what you hear, visit her website.

It’s not often that I’m blown away by an artist. Since I’ve discovered Rudy, I can honestly say that my mind and spirit are totally blown.

This is mind-blowing.

Sometimes you have to take a break

If you are a blogger, do you sometimes feel the need to step back and reflect? If you are a writer, does your writing sometimes keep you from blogging?

I know, maybe that is a strange question.

Sometimes other passions and hobbies grab my attention and do not let go. Lately, my fiction writing has been a priority.

Right now, I’m in the final stages of the second full revision of my first novel. Since this is my first time writing a full length book, I am learning daily about editing, structure and above all…patience.

This project is an extension of myself. Kind of like a baby, so to speak. I have nurtured it, cleaned it, prepped it, and am preparing to send it out into the world for all to see.

This scares me.

I would guess that most everyone who has ever written a book understands this feeling of fear.

This project was started in April of 2013. It’s hard for me to believe I’m almost at the two-year mark.

If any of you have tips or suggestions to offer in regards to finalizing a writing project, I would love to hear them. Thanks, and peace.

Never give up

This one has been around for awhile, but I thought it’d be good to revisit this one man’s story of personal revival.

May we all find some inspiration to tackle the challenges we all face in our daily lives ~ because we all have challenges, whether they are physical or not.

Peace.

Diving deep – a poem

Swimming in the sea of space
In the stars I find my place

Clouds of stardust carry me
Further out into the sea

Diving deep I reach the place
Of the very deepest space

And as I glimpse the edge of time
The only face I see is mine
