There’s a story within each person, motivating every action, filling the moment. Our beliefs, our experiences, weave together to create the story of our lives. On our journey, we reaffirm the things we already know and learn to adjust our beliefs based on what experiences has shown us. Like waves on the ocean, we are always in motion; even in stillness.
“I alone cannot change the world,
but I can cast a stone across the waters
to create many ripples.”
― Mother Teresa

It has been my dream since I was a little girl (sneaking off and typing on my mother’s typewriter I wasn’t allowed to use) to write and publish a magazine. In hindsight, it is interesting how I just happened to land a job as a sales representative at a local newspaper and learn the behind the scenes process of newspaper publishing. From there I moved into a sales position at a radio station. As much fun as I had at the radio station, my heart was in print. I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to work at another local newspaper, and I took it! At the second newspaper, I was given creative freedom to develop sales promotions and write. I was in heaven! I learned more about the publishing business and how all of the elements (departments) are just as important as the next to putting out the next issue.
As with the best laid out plans, the wind can change the course of the sailboat. I am grateful for all the love and support on this journey. Life is an amazing adventure.
With a grateful heart,
The best of plans change, shift and are, inevitability, altered. That’s the joy of life; it’s what makes life an adventure.
