After publication, I realized the best part of being a writer is reader interaction—I love to hear how my work has affected the reader. I love the one-on-one conversations at book signings and presentations. Crazy, but I even like negative comments. Good or bad, I can't think of anything better than when someone takes the time to tell me how they felt about what I wrote.(less)

Monday we celebrate Memorial Day to remember the people who died while serving in our country's armed forces. As I walked Hadrian's Wall Path, I learned how the Romans buried those who served in the Roman army's most northern frontier.

This excerpt from Hadrian's Wall Path: Walking Into History—Full-color version may help you give you insights into their rituals.

“It lifts my spirits to see the statues of mothers, working women, and female peasants. These respectful and well-maintained tributes to women make the day special for me; this art is a lasting reminder that women matter in these rural Spanish towns and that women's contributions are remembered.”
Jane V. Blanchard, Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino

“Sometimes the solutions to our problems come from looking backwards, not forwards.”
Jane V. Blanchard, Women of the Way: Embracing the Camino

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“Vulnerability is the only authentic state. Being vulnerable means being open, for wounding, but also for pleasure. Being open to the wounds of life means also being open to the bounty and beauty. Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: it is your greatest asset. Be vulnerable: quake and shake in your boots with it. the new goodness that is coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things can only come to you when you are vulnerable, i.e. open.”
Stephen Russell, Barefoot Doctor's Guide to the Tao: A Spiritual Handbook for the Urban Warrior
