"A New Day Has Arrived"

"A FALL DAY IN IOWA" photo by June (c) 2011

Here in Texas we're enjoying what looks like, cooler weather, which helps me enjoy even more the upcoming Thanksgiving Events and onward to Christmas. Hopefully we will continue to experience even much cooler weather. Of course, this is my favorite time of the year.

The Holidays can often be depressing for some people, depending on their circumstances. Reaching out to others is one way to cure that. And there certainly are many people who need an e...

A Fresh Start

"Sunny Florida Day" by June (c) 2008

    Do you realize every moment of the day gives you a brand new opportunity to begin 'anew'?  It all begins in your thought life..then comes an action...then the results manifest. For example; perhaps you might want to pursue a new career.  There's the thought ~ then you research the area you want to go into = the action.  Of course the action continues as you refine and express your goals and dreams.  Perhaps you write your ideas on paper or record them...

Thanksgiving is a Daily Event

Posted by June on Friday, November 16, 2012, In : Holidays 
During the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays, we are especially reminded to be thankful for what we have. In some cases many people have lost loved ones and it's a painful time. There is no quick cure for that pain...only time. I have found that when I reach out to others during my most painful moments...it helps to take my mind away from trying to change things I can never change.

Regrets also drift through minds during this season and the words, "if only, if only, if only." A good thoug...

Joy

Posted by June on Tuesday, June 5, 2012, In : Focus 

We all have everyday routines that are necessary to take care of - it's part of life.  Perhaps sometimes the routines seem to be going nowhere.  For example: Working out day after day can seem like a drudgery and the results are not instant.  In this culture of 'instant gratification' people often quit just when the results are about to appear.  A week may go by with little change and then soon, the weight begins to fall off, the body becomes firmer and your step is a bit lighter - less stres...

Wisdom

Posted by June on Friday, May 11, 2012, In : Wisdom 

    "It's not just the size of this tree that makes it so spectacular, although it certainly is huge and breathtaking. It is the Wisdom that this tree carries that makes it so special."(Tiny Seedlings...their journey (c) 2009 p.154)

 As a child, we often look at the people who dress well, are attractive and make good money as successful.  We usually don't explore the inner workings of people...we just mainly focus on what is on the outside.  But then, when a form of adulthood arrives (or we st...

April Showers Bring More Flowers

Posted by June on Sunday, April 1, 2012, In : Focus 
April.     Springtime! 
Have you ever stood out in a gentle rain while the sun was shining and there was a rainbow in sight?  There is a freshness that is felt and the sound of the rain is comforting...as if everything will be allright.  But, when the heavier storms arise, with their dark forboding clouds and multiple lightening strikes - that same sense of peace is not there. 

Whether it's a gentle rain or a fierce storm, once the rains settle down the buds on the trees are waking up and the ...

You are a Work-in-Progress

Posted by June on Saturday, March 17, 2012, In : Success 

We are all a work-in-progress.  It's important to keep this in mind.  Otherwise, at various seasons of our lives, we may think there's nothing more to look forward to. Your past experiences, your present situations and your future expectations, all effect how you feel about yourself. In each season of your life you have made choices - some good and some not so good.  Often people lock their own self image into one particular season of their life.  Keep the bigger picture in mind.  You decide ...

Marching forward in March

Posted by June on Friday, March 2, 2012, In : Focus 
Well, a new turn in the time calendar has come.  Another new opportunity to try out something 'brand new' .  It's also good to step out of the confined boxes others often put us in.  Actually sometimes we put ourselves there - limiting our potential. Taking a moment to just 'try' out a new meal on the menu, or drive a different way to get to one of your favorite spots, or take a class at a community education facility.  Whatever it may be, stepping out of a box to march into a 'new' something...

Don't Sweat the Mistakes While Designing

Posted by June on Tuesday, January 10, 2012, In : Articles on Writing 
"    When I taught in the local colleges, I always reminded the students to not get hung up on the mistakes they make while writing or designing something.  Make a correction if you must, but don't interfere with the brainstorming effect.  I have found that if I just continue moving forward with my ideas I end up creating even more than I dreamed possible.  You can always 'edit' written works later.  Sometimes those mistakes will be some of your greatest creations!"...

Creativity in Art and Words

Posted by June on Friday, January 6, 2012, In : Articles on Writing 

I once had an art teacher tell me;"When you're sitting with a blank sheet of paper in front of you...don't spend too much time thinking about what you are going to draw or create.  Just begin to write down words and more words...whatever comes to your mind - as it relates to the project you're working on."

I was amazed at how many related words I was able to write - soon I was beginning to illustrate pictures to fit the words.  Before I knew it, an idea had formed.  I have used this exercise...

The Author


"Essays in school were my favorite test questions. Little did I know that one day I would be writing poems, self-help books and now a fantasy trilogy. Sometimes if we just take a quick look back in time, we'll find a lost or stolen dream that was so hidden, even we didn't see it."
