Waking Up at a Sacred Time

I often hear my friends complaining about waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep. I always tell them it is a blessing to wake up in the middle of the night. It is a secret mystical, magical time ladened with creativity. I find it’s the time my soul wants to express itself. So when I wake up, I always listen to what my soul has to say. I take pen and paper and I write.

Emotions Can Evoke Story

We’ve all read books that have made us laugh, cry and taken us on a rollercoaster of feelings. So we know that story can evoke emotions. But what I found in my writing process is that emotions can evoke story. If I’m feeling emotional and I’m not sure why, I sit down and write. I’m usually surprised at the stories that emerge. Some of my best writing happens when I’m feeling emotional. So I think that not only stories can evoke emotions but emotions can evoke stories. Just like ice melts into water and water freezes into ice.


I love the Kindle Fire I got for Christmas! It’s the perfect size, not too big, not too small. The fact that the Kindle now has a color screen is very exiting and the Internet access is so convenient. Call me old fashioned but I’m not crazy about the touch screen. The price is very reasonable; it is a lot cheaper than the iPad, which is why everybody in my family now has one. And the best thing of all is that all our devices synch to the cloud, so if I misplace my Kindle I can pick up my husband’s and keep reading right where I left off.
Unfortunately the Kindle Fire, does not have the text to speech feature previous Kindle models have. A great feature that can read documents and text to you while you drive. I hope they bring it back soon! Guess which Kindle is mine?
