Hey there!
I hope you're well. I enjoyed today's mantra. I also have your book and will try to start reading soon - I've been busy with my teaching and tutoring, so I haven't had a chance to be online much - which I originally thought would be different after finishing school. But well, funny where life takes us. :) Take care and keep being a beacon of light! xo

I'm glad you did, too! So wonderful to be connecting again with my beloved writing community. I have just so craved and missed writing. And it's people like you and posts like this that make it so wonderful...and addictive. ;)
As most of you know Bruce our dog passed away on Dec. 29th. I am overwhelmed and thankful by all the kind comments that I received on my Facebook post. Thank you all so much, they all meant so much to me. Bruce as a puppy. Always such a happy boy. Yesterday even though it was bitterly cold ...

Back in early January, I shared a post about creating vision boards and doing meditations to manifest your destiny. It was a “Ten Things of Thankful” post, and yes, I’m still eternally grateful. But, after that, I hadn’t written much. And there was a very…

Outstanding. I have read about mermaids, sea nymphs and a little bit about the Greek Mythology but never learned so much in such a short span of time. The photos are outstanding - the artwork you have chosen is exquisite.

+Tamara Woods - I just love your insights about #nanowrimo  - I am doing my own version...got 48,000 words...but...then I went back to school. Haha. I'll work on it. I will...you keep on. Keep on...keep on...
I haven’t told you guys much about my NaNoWriMo manuscript, because it’s been collecting proverbial dust. Can Microsoft Word docs collect dust? Would it be a dustbyte? (You know, like a terabyte, or some other kinda byte…right?) (Oh man, the … Continue reading →

So beautiful! Just after celebrating, it gets SO quiet when all the family leaves, doesn't it? It's almost uncanny. But you did well with this, considering my most recent post was something like 1499 words. LOL.
So good to see you, friend! xox

I used to own a pear of rose-colored glasses. And though those fun frames have long since disappeared into oblivion, I still don the imaginary pair. [Tweet “When life throws lemons, I make furniture polish. And use strawberries to make moonshine! “] Just…

Story
Tagline
Truth seeker in the written and creative genres. A Spanish teacher during the day.
Introduction
You can call me "Cynthia" - I love the way it sounds in Spanish. I have taught and tutored for many years and hope to do so for many more.

I have two other passions: writing and photography. I'm working on building a brand so that not only do people like the word and image candy I provide, but also feel inspired and motivated in their own lives.

Bragging rights
I once nearly fell 20 feet off a cliff in Big Bend National Park.
