Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. (Kahlil Gibran)

Take a spare few moments this holiday weekend to write about what you are most thankful for. Pen your own daily prayer of gratitude and refer to it often throughout the coming months.

Wishing you a blessed holiday,

Apparently, Nature is the Mother of All Inspiration

The results of this blog's creativity poll are in!
After a tally of the numbers, it appears that the
majority of you (more than 80%) find your best
creative inspiration in nature, such as walking in
the woods, on the beach or through a clover meadow.

To a lesser extent, some of you glean inspiration from
reading elegant prose from literary writers. And even fewer
poll takers reported being inspired by swilling a cosmo
(not too surprising) of falling in LUV (which I DO find
surprising). Hmmm.....what does that say about the state
of the "union"?

Mother Nature, you win!

Major Tom to Ground Control

Okay, so I've had to postpone my website launch for a short bit due to (1) my html person getting a hellacious flu and (2) astrological reasons. No kidding. I consult with my one-and-only astrologer on matters of personal and professional importance such as launching new ventures. I thought November 1 had a lovely ring to it but he ixnayed that idea. Anyway, I prefer to have the oomph of the solar system behind me, so sit tight, people, we'll have liftoff soon. Take your protein pills and put your helmets on.... :-0
