With a friend visiting and an intense, though short, trip to California, I’ve been out of the loop for a bit. Now that my life is back to what I laughingly call “normal,” here’s another Friday Fictioneers flash fiction story. If you would like to play, you may! Just follow the link to the 28 June 2019 post, look at the photo prompt, and follow the instructions. Having a writing prompt is a great way to hone writing skill. Having only 100 words teaches you to make every single word count. The Photo PHOTO PROMPT © Ted Strutz The Inspiration What if you meet the soulmate... Read More

April 30th, 2019
Whispers from the universe: Your past does not define you. Only you choose your destiny.

Did you ever get awakened in the middle of the night for a Divine Appointment? That’s what happened to me today. I outlined two books (reading journals), started an expanded journal edition of The Peace Seed, and fot the nudge to start sharing whispers from the universe. NONE of it is about me. It’s all about serving YOU better and giving you tools and resources to bless your life. Does the past hold you captive? I know a woman whom I’ll call Avis.

“May I help you? the Residence Assistant asked. “Yes. I need a pole vault.” “Excuse me?” “I’m too short from the bed!” That funny moment happened on my first day at Leader Dogs for the Blind, where I met my amazing Leader Dog Diva. I endured 2 days of pure torture between arriving and meeting my dog. People often wonder what it’s like going to guide dog school. It’s an adventure, for sure! Having trained my first 2 guide dogs myself, I was really anxious about having a dog I didn’t pick delivered. “Here’s your do. Before,... Read More
