Word Love ❤️ 

That moment when you read a line that is so beautiful you just close the book and stare at the wall for a minute. #wordlove #WritersAreRockstars2Me

That’s so very Audrey of you. 

Dionne brought us all a little somethin’ from NYC. It’s a print of some pretty amazing public art by Tristan Eaton.  It’s entitled Audrey of Mulberry (NYC). This piece was painted in August or 2013, for The Little Italy Street Project and The Little Italy Merchants Association. Located at the corner of Broome & Mulberry at the entrance of Little Italy.
As a writer, I connect with someone’s words more than anything else. Audrey had some good one that resonate with my soul, so like so many others, I’ve collected hers. *Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!*Paris is always a good idea.*For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.*The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.*The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.*As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one …

Farmhouse Wine, where the fruit takes the spotlight

You know that satisfying taste when you bite into a fresh love-at-first-bite peach at a farmers market and you think ahh yes, this is the way a peach is suppose to taste. It's undoubtedly organically grown, locally sourced and free from added pesticides and chemicals. Now imagine how good wine tastes when the farmer gets out of the way of the fruit take the spotlight. 

There is a growing desire for sustainably-farmed foods that connect us to nature, and few have done more to spread this message in Northern California than legendary soil expert Bob Cannard. In 2003, Fred and Nancy Cline of Cline Family Cellars teamed up with Bob Cannard to create the Green String Farm and Institute in Petaluma, CA, where students from around the world come to learn Bob’s farming methods that cultivate healthy, biodiverse, living soils. These students will undoubtably go on to partner up with Mother Nature to create amazing wines.

A New Year, another chance to get it right. 

A New Year sorta feels like getting a do-over...a second chance to get it right. Possibly you have a list I will commence on New Year’s Day of things to do more and less of. Good idea. It’s an orderly start so precisely on day 1 and well we’re here now... so go for it. However, know that you don’t need a particular day to change wishes to plans. I’m cheering you on and won’t judge you if take a re-start later in the year. On January 1, we will open the new book. Its pages are blank. You are the author. I pray you write yourself a great fact, a best seller. I’m a fan of love stories but write what you like. This book is yours and it’s entitled Opportunity and its first chapter is actually New Year’s Day. I want you to know that at anytime you can say "Plot Twist!" and change the direction of your story. You’re also the Editor and the Publisher. I do hope it’s exciting that sometimes it keeps you up at night. Yes, there’s something quite monumental about a brand ne…

The miracle of a snow fall

Ohh Spokane, you look good in white. ❄️ "The fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?" J B  Preistly
