Just hold on

Hope is a magical entity that fuels our dreams and keeps our deadliest fears at bay. It shows us that just the tiniest of seeds planted deep inside us can blossom into a beauty and strength beyond our imagination. Hold onto hope, hold onto it forever!

Yesterday is history

It's odd how much of our present we spend in our unchangeable past.  Here I am "making history" on the beach yesterday. But then again, all of our yesterdays are history, and all of our todays are the makings of tomorrows history (or her story)!

Little Lady Fauntleroy

I was at the bank yesterday and the lady next to me in line said "I like your outfit, it's like Little Lord Fauntleroy!" Well, I had heard of this book, but didn't know the plot or how my get-up related to it. But after just a few minutes of Googling ~ low and behold, there is a most definite influence of the little lord going on here! As it turns out, the The Fauntleroy suit, so well-described by Burnett and realized in Reginald Birch's detailed pen-and-ink drawings, created a fad for formal dress for American middle-class children of the late 1800's: "What the Earl saw was a graceful, childish figure in a black velvet suit, with a lace collar, and with lovelocks waving about the handsome, manly little face, whose eyes met his with a look of innocent good-fellowship." (Little Lord Fauntleroy So, if I may, I present to you my un-intentional Little Lord Fauntleroy suit!

Lost at Sea

I'm back into somewhat of a routine again with my writing ~  well, really trying ~ as it's my top new years resolution.  So my story takes place in an archipelago ~ a string of islands in a far away sea. My characters find themselves lost at sea and so I've been finding myself ponder what that would feel like and what I might find!
