500!

So begins a new segment of my blog, like unveiling a new wing of the building. I expect the furnishings will remain eclectic. With this post I have written five-hundred posts on Filling Spaces. (yeah-yeah, don't count the other blogs, it'll ruin the moment) Anyway, it seemed like the occasion was worthy of a little … Continue reading 500!

Guiding Star

Sorry to be late with this week's post. I was deep into edits on the vampire novel last night and barely stopped for a bio-break. Happily I'm about 2/3 of the way through the first round of revisions and then I'll be looking for beta readers to give it a look. I did, however, manage … Continue reading Guiding Star

The card is from Charlene Livingstone's Art of Life Tarot. I do think this is an interesting choice for … Continue reading Thoughts as I Thinketh

Thought for Monday

I wanted to kick the week off with something to buoy our spirits. I liked this card from Charlene Livingstone's Art of Life Tarot. It seemed like a good thought to lead us into another work week: In the Tarot, the Six of Swords typically indicates a journey (physical or metaphorical) away from troubles, struggles, … Continue reading Thought for Monday
