Finding the Divine in the Details


Creativity’s gifts and homecomings


Along this writer’s path this week:

Big thanks to Paula Chaffee Scardamalia for her kind words about Snow Fence Road in her Divine Mus-ings newsletter this week:

 Snow Fence Road Cover… One of the magical elements of Ring’s book is that coastal Maine is as much of a character as Tess and Evan. From berry picking to wind-swept snow drifts that only a snow fence prevents from piling up on the road, the setting provides both backdrop and impact, leaving indelible images on characters and readers in the process. … Ring’s love story resonates with the poetry of her language and her images, and her belief in the nobility of the human heart. Check it out.

And do check out the wonderful resources at Paula’s site below. It has an especially inspiring gift for creating souls this week – an invitation to the joy of a “creative homecoming”. Naturally, that includes the heart “and all that resides therein, emotions, dreams, intuitions, creativity”. It also incorporates thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs, illumination, and of course, Divine inspiration, as well as the sacred possibility of healing and finding balance within ourselves.

Paula gave me a huge gift years ago when she helped me understand the precious relationship my dreams have with my creativity.
