[Body, Mind & Spirit] Gifts of Spirit: Knowing When to Write, When to Pause & When to Begin Again

My mother-in-law died this week. It wasn’t unexpected. She was under the care of hospice, and had been declining in health since her husband’s death in 2011. My mom died in 2012. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, for close to two years I’ve been embroiled in a family fight over money that has created…

[Body, Mind & Spirit] Answering The Call To Write

I did not choose to be a writer; writing chose me. It took a long time to realize this. For years I believed I’d chosen this occupation. I sensed it might be hard.
