"You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance." Kahlil Gibran

Quote from Daily Peace book by National Geographic

I've revamped my blog and deleted a lot of personal posts that I had written as my own therapeutic way of dealing with a crisis. While my crisis is far from over, I've learned not to live it day and night, and that escape is good too.

I have been journalling, and for the first time in my life I actually finished out an entire book! I've been to one, sadly yes, just one meeting of the local writing association, but the speaker had an idea that I really liked. It was a 5 year journal that each page was divided into 5 small sections, and each entry was a small excerpt of what happened that day. At the end of the year, you go back and start over, filling in the next section and having the fun of seeing what happened exactly a year ago. Of course I bought a journal, and there it sits, empty on my nightstand.

Time to get started again with writing and connecting-


  1. Ooh, that five-year journal sounds like such a neat idea. And it's nice to see you blogging again! Best of luck with all the writing and connecting you hope to do...

    1. It was a neat idea! If only I could stay disciplined. Thanks for your comment.

  2. Hey Tess.
    Good to see you back on the blogging circuit.
    Keep writing!

    1. Thanks! I know I'm horribly inconsistent, but it's good to say hi to everyone again.
