Just what I needed to hear. So beautifully spoken and strikes right to the heart.


Such an inspiration! I travelled to your blog by way of Sherry's site. I am so thrilled to have found your voice!


Wow! Thanks for sharing. Such an inspiration to read. Your thoughts surely have encouraged me to continue on with my dream. So many times I want to give up especially in this economy. I have a hard time focusing and can't figure out where I'm going with this. But I do feel I'm on the right path. It's good to know I'm in good company. I do feel tremendous joy in my artistic journey. I only wish I knew where I was going.


What an amazingly inspirational piece you've written!! It made my heart beat faster and my eyes water and that knowing feeling hit me in the pit of my stomach. Thank you for your words of truth that you write with such unique clarity. You've touched me.

I've been thinking, the past few days, what my life might look like if I took the leap. It's scary and exciting. Now, I read these words from you, and they are full of encouragement.

Thank you. The Universe works in mysterious ways.

Thank you for this post! September was one of those months that made me wonder if the universe wasn't really trying to tell me just to give up and go back to bed. Nothing seemed to work out from the simple to the complex. I'm going to print your post and keep it near for October and try to keep going. :-)


As you have inspired me....I feel I was awoken the night that I sat at Squam and listened to you read passages from Ordinary Sparkling Moments (OSM)shining your light upon me (and others)...this post today feels as if you're right here speaking personally to me...though I'm on the East Coast and you're on the left Coast you're right here with me....cheering me on...I feel engaged with the world and you're a match the ignited the embers brimming within of possibility....leap and the net will appear....I'm not sure where I'm leaping but a net appeared when I encountered your beautiful soul along with Andrea, Jen, Denise and the other Squam Beauties that I encountered....thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone onto this path I'm not sure where it leads.....

Love to you,
Trish xoxo

PS: the pictures are coming.....


Words I type will never convey what this made me feel. I've printed and will keep you near. A first time stop and you have gone to the top of my inspiring must reads. I needed these words. Can I link you from my blog?


This is exactly the kind of nudge I needed today. Thank you.


My heart just gave you a standing "o," Christine! Wow, what a post!


Thank you for every single word of this.

~Noticing the sound of the rain~ What a teeny-tiny absolutely beautiful moment.



Yesterday was one of those meltdown days for me, questioning every decision I've made about my creative projects and leaps, including the simple attempt to think that I could have creative projects and leaps. And then I read what you wrote: Who are you to keep your unique beauty from the world? Such a beautiful thought. Thank you.


I found you recently after following Denise's story and you are so great! I can't wait to get the book and is it okay to mention how jealous I am of your stamps?? I have completely fallen in love with you and dancing mermaid and kelly rae.
