Signs From The Universe

Emotional level: 7 Mental level: 7 TODAY I LEARNED: “Do geese see god?” <<< that can be read forwards and backwards.   I’ve been thinking a lot about my characters from my book. Story book characters live their lives so much different from ours. Every time you read a book about a far away place…

Reveal Your Fears

Emotional level: 7 Mental level: 7 TODAY I LEARNED: Roosters have built in earplugs. What an intense year. I'm just now coming back from loss, sleep deprivation, and torturous thoughts.
