Your Life in 6 Words

So I get these e-mails from NPR that lately I just skim (if I'm lucky) since I'm a little pressed for time. But the last one had this story about the six word memoir that caught my eye. Then, yesterday, I took a little trip over to one of my very favorite blogs and saw that this amazing lady was in on it too.

And as I'm still on a time crunch (polishing the manuscript of MY IMMORTAL- though please note, the title may change)- six words seemed like just the right amount. So here's mine:

Well traveled in mind, body, spirit.

And if you want to play too, here are the rules:

1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post .
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Or, if you're like me and not all that big on rules, just leave me a comment with your 6 word memoir!

She Talks to Angels

So, I just spent an incredible two days in an intensive psychic/mediumship development course taught by the completely amazing, world renowned, talented, compassionate, warm, loving, funny, and overall awesome nice guy-- JAMES VAN PRAAGH. And even though I realize that's a whole lot of superlatives, trust me, every single one of them applies!

Anyway, the class was great, the telepathic and energy sensing exercises blew me away, and besides the thrill of being in the company of Mr. Van Praagh, I met a whole host of wonderful people, and got some really good material for the paranormal book I'm working on now, MY IMMORTAL (due in 3 weeks- yikes!)

Also, I just found out that SAVING ZOE made TeensReadToo owner Jennifer Wardrip's 2007 TOP TEN LIST-- yippee! Click HERE to see the full list.

Okay, back to work for me!
Happy Sunday everyone!

Gorilla Love

That's Koko, a 35 year old gorilla who learned to speak American Sign Language when she was just a baby. She now has a vocabulary of over 1000 signs and understands even more spoken English. She loves cats, wants to have a baby, and has indicated that she will teach her children sign language, which will engender the next generation of interspecies communication.

She's also an artist-- she titled the work below "LOVE"As are her friends.

Anyway, I saw this today on Daily Candy and was totally charmed, so I thought I'd share it with YOU!

Happy Friday Everyone!
