Simply astonishing. Continue reading How to Make Money Online in 2016: An Unexpected Approach

I now finally have a digital camera – viva Instagram!

I’ve always loved photography, but I couldn’t always afford the printing costs when it was film based. Then digital came…and I vowed to get back into photography when I got a digital camera. Last year I finally got one and seeing as I also now have a smartphone, I could finally explore Instagram. What can I say…I’m in love! There are SO many awesome people on this planet taking the most amazing photos.

I’ve discovered another world.

I’m so totally hooked on Instagram, it’s not even funny. I’m now taking photos specifically to put onto Instagram. I pout if my husband moans about me taking photos of everything we eat when we go out. I fume if I see something I would like to take a photo of and I can’t stop the car, or I haven’t got my camera with me.

Yup, I’m hooked. Totally and utterly. Continue reading I now finally have a digital camera – viva Instagram!

Transported to another world – the circus is alive and magnificent!

My sincere gratitude to the Creator for making possible the magnificence and beauty of human expression in the form of Cirque du Soleil!
I’ve wanted to watch ‘Worlds Away’ ever since I found out a movie was made base on Cique du Soleil and was grateful that this doorway to the modern extravaganza of the circus was finally a reality.

I love the world of the circus and was very sad when they started to disappear because they cannot possibly compete with the onslaught of other media entertainment in our modern era. But the creators of Cirque du Soleil have given us that magic back again and oh, the dramatic canvas they’ve created is sheer magnificence!
The celebration of light, music and the human form in movement is sheer visual pleasure! The beauty of it all touches the heart and sings to the heavens!
I’m not particularly fond of the dark, gothic overtones of the Cirque du Soleil’s shows in general, but their drama, sheer scope and the awesome creativity of it all blows the mind and makes up for it.

Thank you Universe!

Cirque du Soleil – Worlds Away

I see you, I C U, Eye Cee U!

My New Favorite Phrase – from Jeff Goins’ You Are a Writer

I absolutely loved reading this stunningly simple guide to overcoming fear. And even though it is written for Writers, its principles can be applied to overcoming anyone’s fear of success! It’s simply brilliant. Thanks Jeff.
You are a Writer (so Start Acting like One), by Jeff Goins
is an exploration of what we are afraid of as aspiring authors, i.e. writers that aspire to be published, and Jeff describes his own journey of discovery. He continues though by giving solid, no nonsense in your face type of advice on getting on with it and write already!
I loved every moment of it. But I absolutely adore this one phrase he uses every now and then.
He gives a list of things to do or address, “There are three important parts…da..da..da.”
…and then he says: “Let me unpack that.”
He gives you a suitcase list full of goodies – neatly summarised – and then he proceeds to haul them out, one by one, hold them up to the light and turn them around and make you see them in detail. He unpacks it. SO FLIPPIN’ COOL!

       Let’s unpack those.

I.C.U. dude! Awesome language!

I got a free copy of this book at StoryCartel.com – for a promise of a review – another awesome idea! If you’re an avid reader like I am, check it out! Talk about it more later…

Story Structure…for Spiritual Growth!

Thanks to my subscription to the Writer’s Blog “Write to Done” I found this absolute gem – the definitive e-guide to Story Structure: Story Structure to Die for when reading some great advice on guest posting.

Now you’ll know (if you’re a blogger) that writing takes discipline and that the headline for your piece is all important to draw people to read your stuff…but to write a best selling story – fiction, you have to get that elusive something that makes your story gripping, just right…and this is what PJ Reece has finally done! He’s caught that elusive fly between the chopsticks, dissected it and presents it in this amazing e-book…for free!

But the thing that got me absolutely excited was that not only did he capture the essence of great storytelling, he did it in such a way that he’s actually describing

those moments in our lives that define our greatest spiritual growth,

those crunch points that make us take decisions that changes our lives!

And THAT is absolutely AWESOME!!!

He’s managed not only to describe what makes award winning stories work, but in a sense he has also defined why we are drawn to stories of this nature, why compelling stories like this are compelling – because they resonate with us at the level of spiritual growth! We know deep down that it is challenges that enable us to grow, that forces us to make choices and it is these choices that defines us and how we rise or fall. We are the heroes of our own stories, and they may not make it to a book or movie, but they’re damn important to us while we’re living them!

So, do you rise to the occasion and become the hero in your own story? I know I’ve had plenty of defining moments in my life and some have taken longer to respond to than others, but I’ve grown enormously and for that I’m infinitely grateful!
