“Artists are people who are not at all interested in the facts—only in the truth. You get the facts from outside. The truth you get from inside.” --Ursula K. LeGuin

I Love Hanging Out With You

"We’re not afraid to invest in education, tools and services. A business person invests in their future even when they don’t have the money. They start small and invest what they can afford. They then take their profits and reinvest it towards growth."—Caz (http://www.yTravelBlog.com)

I reminded myself of Caz’s directive as I began the journey toward being a Real Estate Agent. I was grumbling about all the training and numerous fees and dues, so many I was beginning to feel I was in a pyramid scheme. You might ask why I am a Realtor® when my passion is to write. (I once read, “I am a writer like a dog is a dog. That doesn’t mean I’m a good dog.”) The answer lies in making a living. Rats.

Droves of successful people say “Follow your passion.”

And I will.

And so will you writers who will write whether you get paid for it or not. You know, as I do, that it is in your blood. So let’s get with it.  

Let’s trust that the Universe doesn’t give us an idea without also giving us a way to achieve it. (Is that too cliché?)

Cliché or not, I have inspired myself.

Let me know how you pull yourself up.


When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts,a circle of Creation is completed inside us.
