The Late, Great Florence King – Fasten Your Seat Belts !!

Inspiration:  Something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create.  (Merriam-Webster definition)

New ideas get me excited, and I don’t even have to do or create anything with them.  Just the thought of thinking about old, familiar things in new, unfamiliar ways makes my brain positively giddy.   Sources of inspiration are all around us, if we know where to look, but for me, the well-turned, finely honed phrase from a gifted writer can make my day for many days and years to come. 

The late Florence King, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 80, was an enduring source of inspiration in my life.

Something Old, Something New and Something Essential

Well, ready or not……….here it is!   With a nod to the past and a wink to the future, I’m ready to take on 2016.   


But first, a toast to you, my dear Readers.  May 2016 be a year of fulfillment and inspiration for all of you, as indeed your comments and e-mails continue to be for me, for which I am truly grateful.
