Dear Audience, I am not working on any new projects right now. Perhaps life has changed for me. I apologize if you feel sorry that you cannot read any more of my new fiction! But even though I came up with more ideas and titles for future works, I just don’t have it in me anymore. I feel very proud of the work I did in the past. Like I told you in my non-fiction book, I crafted my novels for a very long time. I dreamed about the storylines and characters, made plot changes, and edited and re-edited. But I have found other things to do in life. I will never forget the stories, nor will I ever forget that I got a good number of people to read my stuff and appreciate it! Thank you. It has been an amazing experience.

On into the 2000’s now. I didn’t take many photographs in my 20’s, but I found a few, and I thought I’d share them with you. I have photographs of me with my family, with a friend, with my dad, and many pictures of my second apartment in Seattle. I had three apartments in Seattle, but I cannot find pictures of my first and third apartments. I met people and had many adventures during this time. I continued going to school and busied myself with volunteer work and friends.
So, let me show you a few photographs of me when I was younger. Earlier I talked about Carrie Fisher and how she was my inspiration, and how much I missed her. Below you will find the picture of me on Halloween when I dressed up as Princess Leia when I was five, in 1983. Also below you will find a picture of me with two friends in high school. As you can see, I was a little bit of a teenage hippie. Then you will find a duplicate of the psychedelic self-portrait oil painting I did based upon a photograph of me when I was seventeen years old. Finally, I have shared a portrait I recently drew on paper with a blue colored pencil of the late Kurt Cobain.
Happy New Year, everyone! I suppose most people on WordPress do blog entries about themselves, their lives, and their views on life. Some people have businesses. Some people wanted to start a blog for school, or for work, or for a new adventure. I started mine because of my writing and art, to get the word out about my publications, and to share with you a bit about myself. It is another year, and after we have had parties in celebration of the end of the holiday season and the start to 2017, we need to buckle down, make resolutions, and form a plan. Listen to me. The years go by, and sometimes happy things happen to us, and sometimes disappointing things happen to us. But we need to keep our lives and other people’s lives in perspective. Humans have been a species on earth for a long time. Scriptures tell us there is nothing new under the sun. Carrie Fisher from Hollywood just died, and she was my muse and inspiration. When I was a child, I used to think that life would take forever, but now I realize that Heaven is in the moment. Seize the moment. Seize the day, as the late Robin Williams would have said. When we look at life as a long process, we will never be happy. Always take the opportunity to be joyful, to be celebratory, and to be in bliss. Happy holidays, again. May the force be with you.
