Longing For My Partner In Crime!

PARTNERINCRIMEpartnerincrime2Today I am missing my partner in crime! She was my sounding board, my muse, my friend, my partner…..then she was nothing.  Oh how I want her back.  Is it so wrong to want my partner or to want A partner?  Life is fun when sharing it with another!  So what is wrong with that?

If you have a partner in crime ( friend…) enjoy!  It all could be gone in a flash of an eye!  ❤

It Is A Spiritual Thing………


I don’t know if I shared this with you or not, I was given a scholarship to take an 8 week intensive writing course!  I started last week and it has been awesome !  Today I jumped into the week two module and found this quote by Julia Cameron. As I read the words they resonated with me so much I wanted to share with you because I am sure they will with you too!  ❤


“We should write because it is human nature to write. Writing claims our world. It makes it directly and specifically our own. We should write because humans are spiritual beings and writing is a powerful form of prayer and meditation, connecting us both to our own insights and to a higher and deeper level of inner guidance.
We should write because writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living. Writing is sensual, experiential, grounding. We should write because writing is good for the soul. We should write because writing yields us a body of work, a felt path through the world we live in.
We should write, above all, because we are writers, whether we call ourselves that or not.”
~Julia Cameron
