Have you contemplated what God has for YOU to do in this world?

I received this note yesterday from a dear friend 

who has always inspired me to be the best “ME” that I can be.

Let this be a reminder, Lynda, that our job is to do our job and outcomes are up to God.   Someday you will be amazed when you find out how many people you have inspired.

~Dr. Ann Paton, E-mail message, August 30, 2019.

As an Artist and Writer, I have a very clear JOB DESCRIPTION.
I preserve MEMORIES and I celebrate BEAUTY.

“Do the WORK.

And, Keep on DOING THE WORK.”

That’s it!

God takes it from there – my WORK is COMPLETE when I have shared it and only GOD knows WHO will benefit from it.

The PEOPLE my work will reach and what they will receive from it – is not my  JOB.

  1. Please give us a brief outline of who you are. 

I wear a variety of different hats. I use this word, hats, to describe an actual object, as well as a metaphor that portrays myself.  It is a little thing – but important.

Today, I am working on P.R.  for my latest poetry book,Star Signs: New and Selected Poems, just published on July 15.

Star Signs: New and Selected Poems showcases my professional career as a poet from the mid-80s and takes readers to the latest poems, written just before the book was published.

I  give readers 54 poems in this collection.

Now that I am retired from my international teaching career, my…

CRYSTALS ASSOCIATED WITH FIRE #Crystals#Fire#Healing#Stones#Power

This is a really good article on crystals and fire. As I was reading, I kept thinking of the many times fire appears in the Bible. Immediately, I thought of Moses and the Burning Bush – how God appeared as a Burning Bush and spoke directly to Moses while he was out there in the desert – and he was sure “out there” as well when this happened. There are many other references to fire and the importance of fire – but my favorite one of all is the one I carry inside of ME – the First of the Holy Spirit.

I have a love of Crystals – use them in my art work and wear them daily no matter where I am going or what I am doing. I have Crystals in my home in just about every room – always a reminder of the beauty and joy of the Creator who fashioned them all.

Crystals Associated with Fire

The element, Fire is associated with the Summer season and with heat.

In the Chinese Medicine paradigm, the element is associated with the heart, pericardium, small intestines and related to the tongue.

Fire represents physical strength, force, courage, desire, initiative, fertility, passion, purification, and rejuvenation. It represents both light and heat. A positive fire person is strong, courageous and bold, dramatic and passionate in all areas within himself.

Emotionally, this element is associated with the mind and its stability. The heart is the “seat” of the mind and therefore, its highest expression is love. Enthusiasm, warmth in human relationships and conscious awareness.

Here are some of my favorite crystals representing fire:

Fire Agate:

Most often found in North America. Comes in shades of orange, brown, blue, or green. A strong connection to the energies of the earth. Excellent stone to use before meditating. Induces a feeling…

Good morning everyone.

I hope this message finds you doing super great.

First, let me tell you of the wonderful trip to Knoxville Tennessee I took yesterday. I went to Knoxville to a tech center there which caters to the needs of those who are disAbled in some way. Not to just blind persons mind you, but all persons who are disAbled.

I’d like to stop here, and have you note the way I write the word disAbled. See where the emphasis lies. Give that some thought. Screen reader users, arrow through the word.

Anyhow, getting back on track, I’ll start with the trip there. The driver was polite, and helpful. He was also conversational which was nice all by itself. After a while though we…

I am re-blogging this article that appeared last year in Campbell’s World.
This article give you an behind-the-scenes-view of what my life as artist and author is like – on just one day.
What is your world like?
That could be the topic of a new article or poem you could write.
Is your day anything like mine – and how is that?
Is yours total different – and what are the differences?
What inspired you to write or make art?

AUTHOR’S CORNER: Guest Author Carol Taylor #Author#Blogger#Essay#Family#Food#Dogs

This is an enjoyable interview with Carol.
I liked learning something new – never heard of the dogs of Thailand, but glad she has one and is giving the dog a family and lots of good care now. I also can relate to her pet peeves – we all have them, if we are honest about it – but who cares? lol Life goes on around us no matter if we are peeved at something or not. I hope Carol does get on the “best seller” list in the near future – best of everything to you, Carol. I’ll see you at the top.

Campbells World

Good morning again campbellsworld visitors.

We open this week’s Author’s Corner with a fabulous guest.

We have here with us, none other than the famous author blogger CarolCooks2. Yes, that’s right. It’s Carol Taylor, live and in person right here in our very own Author’s Corner.

Way back in June, she answered my call to action request for guest authors, and not only did she answer, but she, like Sally Cronin took my questionnaire and wrote an essay for me to share with you.

So, without further delay I give you, Carol.

*&$%^ Hold on! Wait! King Campbell here, please excuse the interruption. My human mother who is very smart, is also very forgetful. She has forgotten to introduce a most important guest who appears here with Human Carol.

So, before we read this awesome essay, please let me introduce Dog Saangchai who is here with his human mother.
