Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. - Vicki Corona, Tahitian Choreographies: Intermediate to Advanced Level Female Instruction

A Warning by Anonymous

This book is published as insider information. The authortells us they work in the White House in an effort to keep the ship afloat, as it were. Anonymous warns of impending catastrophe if we don’t act … now. For us to “act”, the John Q. Public that we are, is ultimately limited to the voting booth, or running for office. Most of us do not have the power to impeach, convict, etc, at this moment...

Romance Audiobooks: Yesterday: A Novel of Reincarnation by Samyann 21 78 May 16, 2019 10:10AM  
“Remember that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!”
Vicki Corona, Tahitian Choreographies: Intermediate to Advanced Level Female Instruction

“Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.”
Neil Gaiman

“The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you’re allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it’s definitely true for writing.) So write your story as it needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.”
Neil Gaiman
