September Journal Prompt & Published!

"The Power of One"
Journal Page
(Click on the rose to see the details!)

This month's journal prompt asked us to create a journal page or spread that answers the question: "What quote moves you in your everyday life?" Needless to say, there are quite a few quotes that run though my mind during the course of a day.

The only quote that I find myself repeating - almost as though it's a mantra - is "the power of one". I'm always amazed at the difference that can be made with one solitary step, one act of kindness or one decision. The list is endless, and the results are always mind boggling. Just think of what can be accomplished by thinking one happy thought!

**********
Published!

Fall 2011
Back in the Spring, I received an email from an editor at "Somerset Apprentice" asking if I would be interested in publishing a journal page that I'd created in a 6"x6" format. Of course! I was surprised and flattered - I couldn't type an acceptance email fast enough! Without giving too much away, here's just a tiny bit of the finished piece that was published in the current issue.


Wishing you a delightful day!

I was at Barnes & Noble Saturday and picked up a copy of Somerset Apprentice to thumb through while I enjoyed my Chai Latte'. Lo and behold, there you were! Well deserved, my friend. Good for you!!!

You are getting a commanding amount of publications you are published in. But that takes the cake! Being asked is mostly unheard of. Of course, your art is so unique, colorful, and distinct, I would know it anywhere. I am in awe of your art.

BTW, the power of 1 is very moving. It speaks volumes about mind and spirit. You could not have asked for a better journal prompt.

Congratulations on your wonderful published piece. Can't wait to get the magazine to see it again in real life.

I do love your saying and yes, we all have those mantras that help us get through. Mine is "The moment of absolute certainty never arrives." It has helped me make decisions that I would have otherwise put on the back burner.

Thanks for the thought provoking and inspiring post Terri.
