a96735_heligan-head     So….here we all are….looking forward to another year….  !!!      Will it be full of things that never were????

For me….for the past 3 years….I have  made and kept a New Year’s resolution… I know that most people say….Bah, Humbug….to any kind of resolutions…We have all made them and tried our best to keep them with little or no success…so why bother???….Well…I have come up with a way  to be able to make and keep a resolution….easily……The trick is to decide on a change that adds to your life….not one that causes stress

For example….one year I vowed to buy only vine ripened tomatoes when available….nothing less….then there was the NOT turning on the radio in the car unless driving more than 16 kms….how nice and quiet my rides were….and last year I decided to ….around the first of each month…to go clothes shopping for an item or two….to help update my shabby wardrobe.   Now you must admit…..very easy resolutions to make….and follow through on.  Not a bit of stress involved ….and the feeling of accomplishment at the end of each year.  And these resolutions I have continued to carrry on till the present!!!!!

So….now comes the difficult part….coming up with a new resolution for 2013…..but thanks to some friends of mine….on New Year/s eve….we did some brainstorming on possible ideas for resolutions…..such as….

  • Once a month…..do a first….maybe trying a new food….or…buying a new kind of soap or shampoo ….or….watching a new tv show…or…how about just brushing your teeth with your other hand…or maybe going into a store you have never visited ….pay for a stranger’s coffee …etc. etc…!!!
  • Once a month….Taking one item out of my freezer downstairs and using it….(I keep putting items in but never take them out) so it might be an adventure for me

I am feeling that the freezer idea will be it for me in 2013 ….I think  once a month ….would be a good way to go this year…..Now I am a bit excited to find out what is lurking in that freezer downstairs. ….I am just going to have to come up with a date to start…..hmmmm….I suppose if I do it sometime during the first week of each month….will be it…..Hmmmm…although the thought of firsts really intrigues me …..could I maybe….do both…????

Could  this is be a gentle way to step out????

I have been invited to take part in an internet radio series about resilience.

I suppose my next post should be about just that…resilience!!

I learned a new word this week…..

I was reading about phobias yesterday and  I found  there are people who are afraid of books…they have  what is called…Bibliophobia.I have heard of many phobias in my life…but this was something new…the fear of books!!!

So what exactly is A phobia?…It  is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared stimulus.

http://phobias.about.com/od/phobiaslist/a/bibliophobia.htm

I suppose we all have a fear/s of some kind…but would our fears be considered … phobias???….So… of course that got me  to thinking…what fears do I have ?? and are any of them a   phobia???…Is there something that I fear intensely…irrationally…and persistantlyl???…Hmmm

Well…I do fear loosing my calendar…my life line that tells me  where  I have to be when….and then there are my glasses…however…that is not really a problem cause…. I always have contact lenses if they are lost…and how about my keys….that has scared me once or twice……

OH..OH…I’ve got it!!!…candles and fire …I love them outside ...but when they are burning inside…especially when my husband is away…I get a bit worried about fire…I have even been known  to blow out a candle or two at a friend’s home …usually in their bathroom as it bothered me a bit…Also…I   have a good supply of battery operated flames to put in containers….However…I will  admit…I do love the real thing sometimes …and I have just begun lighting up a candle at suppertime once in a while…and actually enjoying it.

So…is it a phobia???…I don’t think so…it is not a real intense fear…In fact…I actually never thought about it much….until I began volunteering at the local fire department …I was their Education Officer for three years…so… I wouldn’t call it a phobia…just a healthy respect and knowledge of  fire.

But  just imagine ….a fear of books…think of all the problems such a phobia could cause a person…imagine all the information and interesting stories that person would miss in their life…I suppose a library would not be a favorite place of theirs…and what about friends…would they only visit homes  of friends …that did not display books???…I suppose bibliophobia could be very debilitating  in ones daily life.

 

I just had a thought…I wonder if a Kindle or an E Book would cause a person with bibliophobia the same problems

…or not??

Ok now…time to relax …

 

20 Days till Christmas morning…

A roller coaster…ahhh yes…that describes my life as a children  book author…up one minute and down the next…turn to the right…turn to the left!!

Book signing at McNally this Saturday was good…well….let me clarify that…it was very good…once the first hour was over…and by the time it was over…I realized…I had not done this in some time…NOT GOOD…as I had lost my momentum…I was off my game a bit…and…truth be told…I was even a bit intimidated that day…it was a bit of a difficult hill to ride.

I suppose we all find ourselves having those days…days when our roller coaster is heading downhill….no matter how hard we try not to…Wouldn’t …… start moving up the hill again … be the goal…Going uphill would take much more effort than going down…in fact…going down takes no effort at all!!!….So finding the energy…and keeping your eyes on the up hill…would be in order.

I suppose that…if on a roller coaster…one could find himself going downhill…in two ways….The first would be…coasting down with  eyes straight ahead…seeing where one is headed…and…inevitably…having a bit of  momentum to start-up the next hill…The second would be…heading down the hill backwards…not seeing where you are going… losing momentum as you go…Two ways to go down …and so…two ways to try to get back up…one being  much easier than the other.

What goes up…must come down….right???…If that is so….It would be impossible to stay up…all the time….Wouldn’t gravity… at some point… prevail….however….is it possible that one might stay down…  find it impossible to get back up???….Is it possible that …one might  not be able to find enough energy to get back up the hill???….Can  gravity  become stronger than a person’s drive ???…Is it easier to go up  a  second…brand new hill…rather that having to … attempt to climb the same exact hill…you couldn’t get up the first time???

It all makes me wonder…with all that hill climbing…wouldn’t it be nice if we got a bit of exercise out of it???…Oh..Oh!!!…maybe we do!!…Could it be that … climbing all those hills…exercises our minds…Think about it…Just like the person who hikes and climbs… the more they hike and climb…the the easier it gets???…Or is it that…it  does get easier… only because…they train for it???

If so…is it possible to train for those roller coaster hills/rides … that make up our life???…Can we prepare ourselves to be more successful at getting up the   hills???…Is it possible that… at times…we can get on a roller coaster …that is too big???…One we have not trained for….one we are  not prepared  to ride???

********************************************************************************************************

Want to be creative with your gingerbread this year????…Here are some ideas.

 

I was reading a book today and got to thinking about words…words in the English language…words that don’t make any sense…and…I kept coming up with more  and more examples…and I thought…Imagine being a newcomer to the English language and trying to make sense of it… our language is often used… in such contradictory ways….for example…

“Civil War”-I don’t remember ever reading about… any war being …CIVIL …..”Greenland”-why call a land that is white… most of the time…GREEN???….”Death Valley”-strange name for a place …having…  a LIVING population….”Eggplant”-it may be a plant…but not the size or color or texture of any egg I’ve ever seen…”catgut”–actually comes from a sheep….and …an “underdog”- has nothing to do with a dog.

Words…Ok now…imagine being new to our language and telling someone …When my grandfather “kicked the bucket”…there were a lot of”crocodile tears”…or…The “boob tube” put me” in hot water”…or…My mother is always “splitting hairs” and “picking holes in things”…or…He was running down the hill …when he “hit the wall”.

And …how about…have you ever received an invitation to a “political PARTY”??…or…have you ever been  “in the same boat” as  a “lucky duck”??…What kind of umbrella might  one need when it is “raining cats and dogs”??…Does a “life-preserver” really preserve….Why are “bangs” so quiet???…and…Why is the “hot seat”…never really hot to the touch??

Words, words, words….I can’t begin to imagine how confusing it would all be …if I were to be trying to learn English…I do think we must have one of the most convoluted languages there is…When I was attempting to learn French…it seemed  more “straight forward”…hmmmm….          Or is the French language ….  just the same…???

Oh no!!!  …Could it be… that I just kept understanding and taking everyone literally!!!….wow…now that’s a scary thought.

*******

I will be at McNally Robinson’s Bookstore on Dec. 4th…1-3 to sign books…come visit and pick up some Christmas gifts at the same time.

HO HO HO

 

Check out my new visitor counters that show countries visitors are from ….I am now curious to see what shows up ..I know I have had visitors from  places other than Canada…hmmm…I’ll just have to wait and see. Calling visitors from around the globe to check in!!!!

27 days left till Christmas morning….

Ever hear a word being said and you thought to yourself…hmmm….I wonder what that means???…Have you ever been listening to speech and someone uses a word that you have never heard before… and …you get  so caught up with that word…and actually didn’t hear much of what followed???…

Well…that is exactly what happened to me last night….someone was giving a little talk and used the word…”EFFUSIVE”…which threw me right off as I had no idea what it meant…It was used in order to explain someone’s personality…and so…I figured… it had to be something good or it wouldn’t have been said with 20 people present..but…

I thought about it a bit…hmmm…should I let it go…or do I  ask for the meaning???…so …at an opportune time …I decided to dive in…I asked my friend…a past school teacher…what is the meaning of that word????….He did not answer but instead…turned to another retired teacher…and asked him if he would clarify it for me….The second person  then  admitted that …he did not really know that answer…AHA!!!….I was not alone in my ignorance…and …I would venture to think that… although many in the room …”had an idea of the word’s meaning”…they truly did not know it.

Ever found yourself in a like situation???…Wanting to ask for clarification but not sure if you should???…Wondering if you are the only one present…who doesn’t understand????…Waiting and hoping that someone will speak up and ask YOUR  question????…Have you ever weighed your  need to know…as opposed to the possibility of… embarrassing yourself????…

I wonder how much we have all missed or misunderstood…just because we were afraid to ask???…As children…all we do is ask !!!!…what…when …how…why….where….over and over again…that is one way children learn…Why is it that as we get older…we hesitate to ask….Can it be that we feel we have nothing more to learn from others???….Can it be that we want to appear smarter than we really are????….Can it be that it is just not that important to know????…or….Can it be that we are afraid to ask???

Well…for those of you out who need to know..I will clarify effusive for you…

effusive [ɪˈfjuːsɪv]

 

extravagantly demonstrative of emotion; gushing, uttered with unrestrained enthusiasm, burbling, gushy,
Do you know someone who is effusive???….Are you effusive????

Here is another interesting piece of art….made out of chocolate this time….
Who would ever have the heart to actually eat such a beautiful creation…???


Build It and They Will Come….is one of  those feel good movies which I have seen more than one time… To me… it is a story about determination, believing, expectation, hope and happiness….have you seen it???

I was thinking about that movie this weekend…no…I did not build something…however…along with a very dear friend…I planned something…a one day event…and like in the movie…We hoped people would come...and they did!!!!

I am sure you have …at some time through the years…planned something… a gathering…or a dinner…or one of those

Tupperware parties we used to take on……any event…and after all the planning and preparing…came the day of..and your hope was that …THEY WOULD COME …yes…that there would be a nice turnout of people to make your event a success….And along with this…how many of you..just as I did this weekend…have been  excited…a tiny bit worried…hopeful…and then…had an event …that turned out to be a wonderful experience!!!

If I have learned anything over the past few years…it is that …when opportunity knocks…always consider opening the  door…and always be ready to possibly welcome it in…Have you had any knocks at your door lately???….Did you  open it ???…or… Did you close up the curtains tightly… and fearfully sit … quietly in the corner …and let  opportunity  pass you by ????….I have been fortunate to have it knock at my door…often …over the past few years…and although I might have been hesitant  some days…after taking a look through the peephole…I most times….opened the door….and am glad that I did!!

An obstacle is often an unrecognized opportunity

Is it possible for opportunity to knock ….and…not be heard???…Can an obstacle… really be …an unrecognized opportunity???…and if that is true…does that mean  …the more obstacles a person encounters…the more opportunities a person has???….and …if a person’s life is not full of obstacles…will they have fewer opportunities????…Or could it be…. some people …just pay more attention to their  door????…Is it possible that the … knock…knock…knock… is  louder on some days????…and …Is it possible that opportunity can knock… on two of our doors… at the same time??????…Hmmm…..

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.  ~Milton Berle

Now that’s an interesting thought…..build a door!!!!

So now my collection is moving from….pencil art and carvings…to…crayons…I think I want to try this myself….

All’s well today and so I will stop my telling you about my appliance issues and get on with the real blogging….

Sand…ever think about sand???   How small each piece is and how many it must take to develop one little beach???  Ever wonder why..there is some sand you can drive a car on and others you can’t ….and why do they call it quick sand???  I that really made of sand???  Or how about sand in an hourglass…do all hour glasses use the same kind of sand and has anyone actually timed an hour-glass to see if it really takes the time it says????

Sand…what a topic you might be thinking…but I have to tell you I have found some wonderful things (sculptures) made with sand and want to share them with you over the next few days..  Anyone ever make a sand castle???  I remember loving to do just that when I was younger…For the past three years I had been wanting to do just that while on holidays….but  I never did…why not???  I am not sure…Too childish???…not for me but I suppose I hadn’t done it in so long that a but of intimidation crept in there.

Well….these people were not intimidated !!!   I would wonder how many hours it took to do some of these and how long they remained in tact. Kind of like preparing for anything…the making takes hours…but the taking down…only minutes.  For example…a dinner…an event…a stage show..etc. There is something kind of sad about that  :(……

And so…here they are…Sand Creations….I hope you enjoyed them as you read my post. Pretty amazing work!!

A little sunshine for you…. 

_________________________________________________________________________________________ 

I was invited to be  a guest reader at McNally Robinson’s ,…friday morning storytime in Winnipeg. I was so thrilled that two children in the group either had heard the story or owned the book!!! I was also able to see where and how my book was displayed in the store….some were at the front cashier’s counter….more were on a table in the back and more were on the shelves along with hundreds of other titles…however…Sam was right at the front of the whole bunch!!!So I thought…hmmmm…was that because my book was a new one??? or Was it because I was there to read??? or Was it prominently placed because of its small size and it would have gotten lost behind other bigger ones??? … 

Did this event sell any books?? I don’t know. Should I do more of such events??? For sure!! 

Earlier this week , knowing I was going to be in Winnipeg, I thought I might as well make the trip worth while….so…I phoned two other bookstores …who told me to bring in my book and they MIGHT CONSIDER having it in their stores sometime in the future..They both told me that they have limited books on consignment and that mine would have to go through a review process and MAYBE…just maybe..they would consider putting it on their shelves…. 

And so I DID meet with Chapters and Indigo on Friday… I was a bit intimidated meeting them…a bit unsure how they would react to Sam…a bit nervous after walking through their children’s sections to see hundreds of wonderful books on the shelves…Both people I spoke with…. appeared to like my book and both are calling me next week to discuss details…and they truly sounded sincere…and … it I am hoping Sam will soon be available in their stores!!!. … they both also asked if I would come to their reading times in the future and of course I said …YES!!! 

They told me they do not get very many new children’s titles….and it seems that is a good thing for me and Sam….but…What about their review process???…What about the ..we MIGHT consider???… But happily…Without even reading the story…they wanted it. So there must be a bit of truth about the fact that it is the cover of a children’s book that initially sells it. 

 But what about the  story???…How important is it to getting a book on the store shelves???…Maybe it is the cover that gets a book on the shelf  but the  story that will decide how long a book stays there…I wonder how good my story  will prove to be??? 

I have started a new Sam adventure. After reading about the weird afternoon to  groups of children…I ask the kids for their ideas to help me with my new story…and they have provided me with lots of material!! Now I just have to sit down and work on it. Will it ever be a book or will it just be a story I read. Hmm…first I have to find out how much I even like being an author and if I am willing to do the work required for a second book.

Happy 4th of July to my American Friends !!!!  

     

Yesterday was another book signing day for me at McNally Robinson.  Turned out to be a fun and worth the effort.  Thanks to all who came out and bought books. With each book event I attend, I keep learning things about myself and about other  people….Each event (except readings)…makes me think …be assertive…get out there….talk…talk…say hello…be non threatening…And each time all of those become a little less intimidating. … I have also found that having a good friend along can be wonderful support…as they are a lot better at talking UP your book than you are and much less intimidated….Tooting your own horn is not the easiest thing to do at the best of times!!…Thanks to my friend and fellow author … Eleanor Chornoboy…for being that friend yesterday.    

5,000…On Friday evening my blog showed 5,000 hits…and I wondered whether that should have any meaning to me or not????….I suppose I am thrilled to know that each time I sit and write on my blog…someone out there will read it…especially thinking back to when I first set it up and wondering  should I???…What will I write about????…Will anyone care to check it out??? …and Why would they???Then I got out my handy dandy calculator and figured that each month there have been about 6oo visitors…which made me feel pretty good…until I started checking hits on other sites…only to find out that my number is pretty low.    

So I asked myself…self…Is there something I can do to increase visitors to my site???….Have  I not been faithful in writing at least 5 times a week????….Have I not spent hours visiting others sites..reading…leaving comment..with a link to mine????….Have I not joined enough groups and sent emails to them to keep them informed about my book and site???…Have I not been on facebook, twitter and my space enough????….I have done internet interviews for others sites and I have written articles for others sites and I have tried to keep my site fresh and interesting with weird collections and photos and I have tried to make my readers smile???    

Is it possible for me to double…the amount of visitors to my site???    

Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.  ~Lewis Carroll    

I need some ideas…I need some new thoughts…Got an idea????… Or maybe I need to learn more about connecting through the internet and blogging???…5,000 hits is …for me…great…however…it has now become a challenge  for me to see if I can’t increase that number….which means …think…think…think..do…do…do!!!    

A fool-proof method for sculpting an elephant:  first, get a huge block of marble; then you chip away everything that doesn’t look like an elephant.  ~Author Unknown

So…I will try…I will do more blogging research…maybe I should ask successful bloggers if they have any words of wisdom…and I will stay positive and see if this month I can get more than 600 visitors….On August 4th…will my July visitor count  have increase???…I wonder….How sucessful will I be???     

Yes indeed, yes indeed!

My Next ….Odd Couple

Timing is everything in competitions, in cooking, in driving, in stand up comedy, with heart attacks etc.

However …today I want to muse about timing in life…..

Have you ever heard these phrases….” I am not ready yet.”…or …” I’m waiting for the right time.”…or…”When we have enough  money.”…or …”When we have more time.”. ????

I am pretty confident that you have not only heard these words….but are guilty of saying them yourself…like me.

So it got me to thinking about….how does one ever know…. When ready IS…or When is the RIGHT time…or When the money is Enough…or When they have ENOUGH  time????…Do we really want to plan out our lives???….Can we control the timing of events???…Is timing really everything??

 

Maybe….the right time  or enough money or  enough time or being ready…has more to do with  a person’s mental state….than it does anything else.  A person can be ready for just about anything…at anytime…if they decide to be.

You cannot afford to wait for perfect conditions. Goal setting is often a matter of balancing timing against available resources. Opportunities are easily lost while waiting for perfect conditions.   

 Gary Ryan Blair

If we thought about it…how many times have we been put into situations that we did not plan on being in… only to really enjoy the experience???….What does that have to do with timing???….Yes, after the fact you may say to yourself….what good timing that was…but is because …. it  fit into your life so perfectly???…or that you allowed it to do so????

Now, I will agree….there can be such a thing as BAD timing….for example….a person could get into an accident because they just happened to be at a certain intersection  at a certain moment. Or…you can burn the cake if you do not watch the time.Yes..in these cases…timing is everything!!

But I am talking about timing in a broader sense..I do believe that sometimes….Waiting for the perfect time…can be another way of saying…I don’t really want that???  For example…I’m just not ready to get married….can really means…I don’t want to marry YOU.   Or the statement….Let’s wait to have children until we can afford it…really meaning…I don’t want to have kids…or if you have something to tell a loved one and you say to yourself….I will tell him when the time is right…you really mean …I am afraid to tell him…so I’ll wait.

How often do people use …timing ….as an  excuse for NOT doing something. Either because they don’t want to or are afraid to??

So …what about opportunities that cross our paths and timing ???…How do we know if we should take them or not???…How do we know if it is the right time to go down a path??…Is there really a right time and how would we ever really know???

For the super hero in you....

Personal  Legends

I have been reading the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho which is making me think about…my… Personal Legend. I don’t remember having a personal legend when I was young…or did I ? …and has it just been long forgotten?  Or am I living my legend?

It’s [your Personal Legend]                                                                                                                                                                                                               what you have always wanted to accomplish.  Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.  At that point in their lives, everything is clear and everything is possible.  They are not afraid to dream, and to yearn for everything they would like to see happen to them in their lives.  But, as time passes, a mysterious force begins to convince them that it will be impossible for them to realize their Personal Legend.  –  The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

So what might a personal legend actually be?  If you listen to children… they have dreams….dreams of being a  fireman, the president, an astronaut, a ballerina, or possibly to travel the world. Children dream that they would like to be a hocky star or a movie star or even a writer. It is true that children are not afraid to dream….but when do they stop dreaming?  and what is it that causes them to stop?

It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I suppose you can say , as we get older …our dreams about our lives ….go from BIG …to …little…more realistic dreams. What is it that makes that happen? Is it because once we learn more about our personal legend, we feel it is out of our reach? Is it because other people lead us to believe our personal legend is an impossible dream? Is it because it is going to take more work than we are willing to put in? Is it fear that stops us from trying to achieve it? Is it money? Is it health? Or are these all just excuses ? Can our personal legend change? Are we allowed to change it? And if we do…is it really our legend anymore?”

“When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible for a shepherd to achieve.”…..The Alchemist

The book …The Alchemist…is such a wonderful read. It  made me think about my life and my Personal Legend. I believe that…In paying attention to the main character…the Shepard…you realize why having a Personal Legend is so important. It is not the Legend itself…it is …what you learn , see and live along the way to that legend that matters. It is the jouney..as they say. It is about finding yourself  in not so wonderful situations…as you try to get there….but always finding the silver lining in each time. It is about keeping your eye on what is important…to have a goal and work toward it…but not at the exclusion of everything else…and to be sure to not wear blinders as you go on your way….or you will miss so very much…possibly even an OMEN…as the shepard calls it…that might have been very  important in directing you…

Can a personal legend include small , different legends along the way?  Is my book one of those small legends?

Did/do you have a personal legend? Are you traveling toward it? If so, what have you seen, heard or learned along the way? Hav you had some difficult times…but have you looked for or found the  silver linings???

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.

A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I was thinking about change the other morning as I sat in my friend’s kitchen, writing  my next blog post  and looking out their windows .It was then I realized how refreshing the  new view was as I looked out. You may be wondering…why  write in someone else’s kitchen ? Well, a bit of a favor for friends…as they were both at work, they needed someone to be there for when  the cable guy came…so there I was. 

Anyway…Change…that is what I want to talk about.  Having a different view of the snow that morning made me wonder…if I was enjoying the change so much …why is it that we are so often afraid of change in our lives?  Is it that as we become older,  are we way too set in our ways? Or is it that we are just stubborn ? Or, is it fear…fear of the unknown?

So, who are you… when it comes to change in your  life?   Me , I will admit, I take some comfort in cosistancy…and change?.. I never really thought too much about the subject…but I do know……doing some new things for the first time has been difficult.

Starting a blog was one of them. I knew I should have one if I wanted to let people know about my book.   But if I made a blog,  who was going to read it?  And if anyone actually did check it out , what would they think of me and my ramblings?  How would I come up with subject matter time after time…and how would I make it not boring? Afraid? Yes…I would say so. Writing a blog would mean putting myself out there….it made me think of  those dreams I’ve had…..where I get to where I’m going and find myself  naked!!!  Now…Why would a person want to subject themselves to that?

However, feeling it was necessary but feeling   totally intimidated… I worked for hours and  developed …So you wanna be a writer.  As of right now my blog is only  two and one half months old…but tonight …it is at the 2,000 hit mark…and my book is not even launched yet!!!!  

Good thing I decided to step into the scary.. unknown.  Little did I know …it would be such fun.

Is there an unknown you would like to step into but are afraid? Go for it, it might just awaken the stranger in you.

And now for shoes….Of course I have a another  interesting shoe for you…..

A shoe with wings.
