Thinking about creativity and relaxation led to this post.
Today we can do so many things more quickly and easily than was possible in my parents' time. We can send and receive texts and email in an instant, cook entire meals in a microwave, and watch movies and television shows on o...

Though I'm not a believer in astrology, I do find that being on the cusp is a good metaphor for life.

Lately I've been thinking about beliefs and reasoning styles.
I'm currently revising Book 3 in my supernatural thriller series. In the first quarter of the story, one character takes a swipe at another for being a "true believer". (The characters are Eric Holmes and Cyril Woods for thos...

Sometimes what's most frightening is what we do every day.
I've been thinking a lot about work lately. Specifically, how work affects quality of life. Last year was one of change for me. I shifted to writing fiction full time. Before that, I practiced law full time, and before that, ...

    Writing/English
I have a small firm and handle complex commercial litigation. I switched to ePageCity after several years with a different (and more expensive) web hosting and design service. The transition was seamless, including the transition of my email. The team building the site kept in touch with regular updates and eased me through the process. I had no disruption to my practice at all. I like the look and content of the site better than my previous one, and the pricing is more reasonable than what I paid before. The training on editing my web content was extremely helpful, and I can add additional content and pages myself anytime I choose, which is wonderful. The ePageCity site is also easier to navigate from a user standpoint.
