Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

I hope that 2015 was ushered in on the wings of hope.

As many of you know, each day I try to put a memory of the day, a lesson learned or a thought down on a slip of paper and deposit them into a jar.

Each day of the new year, I reach into an old jar and pull one out from the year before. It helps me start each day with a blessing and reminds me of how grateful I am for family, friends and those magical moments.

One of these days, I am going to type them all up and share them on the blog, after which, I think I will cut each one out and decoupage my old desk with them so I can look at those messages and stay inspired.


Speaking about being ushered in on the wings of hope. How many of you know what Usher Syndrome is?

Below is a link that will define its clinical description. I want to share the human side with you.

I have been blessed to meet many wonderful people that have Usher Syndrome. I have been inspired by their stories. Many struggle but all triumph.

To learn more about Usher Syndrome here is a groups I recommend.

My Usher Friends are working on a wonderful 
project and I will share the information here as more
details roll in. 

There are many groups available to those with visual 
impairment and I will be posting more of them soon.

Penning Again

It has been months since I have posted. I have been relatively busy as I am sure you have all been.

I began penning again about 3 months ago and I have had the honor of meeting several writers. Their works are inspiring and I hope to showcase a writer here and there as I go along.

My friend and published author Michelle Anne Noonan has been invited to do a one hour panel talk on one of her local radio stations.

She will be reading some of her works and is 
honoring me by reading some of mine.

Please stop by Mishy's website to learn more about her life as a poet, author and Australian.

Below you will find a link to her first book,

"Sensual Whispers" 

It is available in paperback and Kindle editions.

The show airs on Friday noon to 1:30 Melbourne time.

Here are links to the station's facebook page and website.

I will let you know how it goes.
