But I did have a bad episode some years ago - just couldn't think of anything creative to write about. Wrote some memoirs instead - and started painting again. It was some time before I found a story to get excited about - but haven't looked back since.(less)

“And I don't believe in such a thing as "happily ever after". There's only happily every now and then. I find the hardest trick is to recognize the now-and-thens, and to bask in them when they come. Happiness is a choice we make, like how to wear our hair, or having coffee with breakfast and tea at night.”
Cindy Bonner, The Passion of Dellie O'Barr

“What will survive of us is love.”
