Journey On: Beauty and Grit Along the Way is now officially one year in publication. A year ago today was my first book signing at The Gift Hut in Cold Spring, NY. I am forever grateful to an old and dear friend who pushed and pushed me into getting Journey On published in time. Over 500 copies have been sold to readers all across the country and in the UK. Tomorrow I meet with Rosie Eylens to pick out another one of her beautiful pieces of art work for the new book cover! A second volume of poetry to be published in 2014 in the Journey On Series: Journey On: Life in Small Pieces. What a fabulous year it has been with book events, book talks and book sales. So many lessons and experiences woven into a tapestry of unforgettable moments in the year of my first book. Thank you all who have taken Journey On under your wing for your nightstand, morning coffee, book shelf, quiet times on the couch and as gifts for friends and loved ones. Journey On, Yes!

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.
