But if I need to write a blog post, for example, and if I have no idea what the topic is going to be, I'll just get up and do something.

I'll cook, write, sing, sometimes clean (if my husband's lucky!) Some of my best ideas have happened while taking a shower! Unfortunately, that's the only place I don't keep a notebook, so I'll rush out of there to jot down my idea. I hate losing ideas.(less)

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”

“For art, she had thumbtacked hundreds of autumn leaves on one of the cracked walls.”
Eleyne-Mari Sharp, Inn Lak'ech

“Two days after the tragic events of 9/11, I found myself anxious, upset, and desperately in need of the color green.”
Eleyne-Mari Sharp, Mad About Hue: A Memoir in Living Color

“She was a thinner, prettier version of her mother with huge sea-green eyes and straight, long hair the color of golden copper. She hadn’t made peace with her small breasts, huge flat feet or the freckles that spilled across her pert nose but Glorie said she was nice-looking enough to have modeled for any one of the mermaid prints that hung on the walls.”
Eleyne-Mari Sharp, Inn Lak'ech

“It is important to remember that we all have magic inside us!”

“This above all; to your own self be true.”
William Shakespeare

“As a child, I was told by my parents and teachers that if I didn't have what I wanted, I had to either accept the situation or create something. So I was always creating things, like backyard carnivals and an "automated" lemonade stand from an empty refrigerator box. Or a four-tunnel tent in the living room that I had made from blankets and chairs. I believe that "necessity is the mother of invention" and I practice it all the time.”
Eleyne-Mari Sharp

“I own hundreds of self-help and spiritual books and lately I’m only drawn to a few of them. I am still awakening to what Life is truly all about, but even though there are spiritual authors and teachers like Louise Hay or Wayne Dyer or the Dalai Lama whom I still admire—I believe that all the answers I seek, everything I need to know is right here inside of me. So I meditate—which is about listening—and then I find the answers.”
