It seems that throughout my life the written word has ranked up there with breathing and taking nourishment. I cannot remember a time that I did not read. I have always written journals and small stories. I have expressed myself with words, art and photography and found pleasure in creativity as I go through my ordinary life. Perhaps no life is "ordinary" but rather filled with stories and adventures that are often missed. My attitude for each day when I drink my cup of coffee and try to wake up comes from three little words. I can say "Good God morning!" or Good Morning God!" Amazing the difference that makes.
