Two seemingly unrelated things happened in the summer of 2014.
1. My birthday.
2. Being restlessly perturbed.
Converging upheavals tend to disturb life’s even keel. I was a year older in June and questioned what I had done to show for it.
I did what I always do when upheavals pile up. I go into semi-seclusion and reach for a book. In this case, one of Julia Cameron’s. A random open and two words in I found the reason for my funk.
It comes easy to me to start something. As well, I consider myself an in-process person. But boy, it takes absolute determination for me to complete projects.
I keep a brown leather lined book. I reached for it and wrote, “Finish something” inside of it then looked at its gold-edged pages and imagined:
- someone else enjoying words of wisdom.
- someone else putting quotes in birthday or graduation cards.
- someone else using the quotes as “word courage” to do, undo, or, thanks to Rita Mae Brown and Judy Garland’s words, allow herself to wear plaid on Wednesdays.
- someone else, becoming motivated to give a birthday present to herself.
And realized I held my next book in my hands. Inside my new release, Kissing the Shoreline: Quotes and Reflections to Live By, you will find my favorite quotes and Bible verses, topically arranged. You can buy the paperback version (regular $9.99 US, but for the book’s release, it is available for $7.99 US on Amazon) or Amazon’s Kindle version. ($2.99 US)
