"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."  Steve Jobs - Apple Computers.

Wow. Is that not a great thought? I've got to put it all over my mirrors and such at home - to keep me on the creative path of writing. I've been ill these past few days. I find I can't write when I'm like this. 

But I know I will get better soon, recover. And I will be ready to forge onward again. I have been making steady progress with "Blue" and there's no reason to think I won't continue. I am looking for a September finish date. I really don't think I can meet it, but I want to try.

My heart aches for publication. Aches for it. I will continue to work towards that end. The ache doesn't supersede my love of writing - I firmly believe the ache is the end product of my writing. 

This week-end Skyline will be having its conference. I so look forward to it because I am bound and determined to suck in, like a vacuum, every morsel that the speakers are willing to give. I'm going to network with the folks who attend. AND I'm going to write, too.

Thanks Steve Jobs and may your good health return.

Life is following my heart.

  1. Rest and be well soon, so you can fully enjoy your conference. Sometimes, illness is an opportunity to regroup.
