Endings are Beginnings
We have reached the end of a story. It’s the end of one tale and the start of the next. It’s easy to be happy about beginnings. Endings can go either way. They can be happy or sad. It depends on your story. Your story has starts, stops and transitions. It will end for good…

People should listen instead of just waiting for their turn to talk. Did you hear that? Are listening? So often humans just want to talk to get what they want to say out in the air. They pay no mind to the other person talking. They don’t listen. It is called discourse not a monologue…
Sometimes I feel like I am floating in a sea hanging on a life preserver. I am not alone. Everywhere I look there is another author floating by on a boat, raft, kayak, or yacht. We are all clambering to get to the land of readers. Some maliciously pushing each other off their vessels and…
