Mothering Sunday

Today is Mothering Sunday in the UK. I thought I'd pick a nice picture for the day and found one that's a good reminder that mothers come in all shapes and forms. ;-)


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

Thoughtful Thursday ~ Follow the Sun


Today is the Spring Equinox in the North, so I thought I'd pick something fitting for the return of the sun. A quote from a song, with the song. :-)



When you feel life coming down on you,
like a heavy weight.
When you feel this crazy society,
adding to the strain.
Take a stroll to the nearest waters edge
remember your place.

Many moons have risen and fallen
long, long before you came.
So which way is the wind blowin',
and what does your heart say?

A new Website and a Map

I've finally put up a website for my books, First Light and Wisdoms of the Light. I've chewed over the idea of a website before, but always found reasons to put it off. The biggest reason being the fact I'm an artist with a fussy eye for details. I can take weeks just deciding on web page background designs!

The new website is HERE 

http://firstlightsaga.yolasite.com/

I've been busy working on art for the site the last week and I finally put up the last finishing touch this morning - a map of Sindorus.


All the artwork is mine, including the map of Sindorus. If you run your cursor arrow over a thumbnail picture it will show you a book quote. If you click on the thumbnails they open up full size.There's a small square in the bottom right that shuts a full size picture.

Walking on Sunshine

This Monday morning the skies are grey, but my heart is bright. I woke up to find TWO fantastic reviews of my books, one for each book. I'm beyond thrilled... I'm walking on sunshine! :-D

The wonderful review for First Light, by book reviewer Ivie Isler, can be found here, or on Amazon.com. 
 
And... drum roll please... my review for the sequel is by none other than the Queen herself - Princess of Blog4Peace, Mimi Lennox. You can find her opinion of Wisdoms of the Light here.






In celebration of a great way to start the week I'm adding a wonderfully bright version of Walking on Sunshine (by Katrina and the Waves, 1970s) by the Soweto Gospel Choir. 

Have a sunshine day!

Clever Countdown

I was sent this clever and funny look at the forthcoming Scottish Referendum. They say it was banned from Youtube. Why? I have no idea! Unless laughing at politics has become more dangerous than extreme violence and gratuitous sex in everything from music videos to computer games. :-\
