A Part of Life We Shall Not Know

If, on a starlit night,
with the moon brilliantly shimmering,
we stay inside and do not venture out,
the evening universe remains
a part of life we shall not know.
--Rev. Marni Harmony

If we don't venture out into life, we will miss something of great value. This is true whether it is a starlit night or a stormy one, all of life has something to offer and value.

I have a friend who loves questions. Questions push us to seek answers we might  not otherwise have searched for. Here are a few questions we might ask ourselves:
  • What am I missing in my life that I regret not having?
  • What am I missing that I want to pursue?
  • What would I have to do in order to pursue that missing element?
  • How would my life change if I took up the challenge to pursue it?
  • What is keeping me from the thrill of pursuit?
I hope you pursue your dreams and love the journey.

Art and Soul Festival

        If you'll be in Winter Haven, Florida on Saturday, April 16th be sure to come by the Art and Soul Festival located at 253 Avenue A, SW from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. There will be over 50 artists, live music, poetry readings and numerous talks and discussions.

        This Festival is being sponsored by the Drops of Jupiter Gallery and the Center for Personal Growth. 

        I will be speaking about two of my books: Address Unknown and Unlikely Heroes. Guaranteed to be lots of fun and interesting artsy things going on. I tend to want to have conversations rather than just talk myself. This gives the participants the opportunity to get what they want from the program and, hopefully, makes it more interesting for them.

I hope to see you there.
