Happy New Year! (Almost). I am very excited to welcome 2018 and see 2017 in the rear view mirror. Although, it has been a wonderful year for me personally, I am acutely aware of how difficult it has been for so many others. Innumerable calamities (both natural and man made) to endure and transcend. I marvel that the threads in our fabric are holding together. In retrospect, it seems miraculous we’re still in one piece!
I wanted to share something amazing that happened to me a few weeks ago. I met with a young woman who does tarot readings, and something quite interesting occurred. She “saw” me writing books, particularly for young people. Not stories, but books that educate, guide, encourage, support, etc. It was something utterly unexpected. Me, write? Mystified, I asked her what I should write about. She paused for a long time and said: you already know.
Well, that sounds pretty woo-woo, doesn’t it? The odd thing is, on my way home, a book concept flashed into my mind – fully formed. Complete with title, chapters, format, layout, and general content. Literally within minutes, this perfectly packaged idea burst into my brain, and it felt completely “right.” Along with it came an equivalent feeling of certainty that I would be spending 2018 writing this book!
The target audience for the book is young people (teens and young adults) who are struggling to find there way in life. Perhaps with drug and alcohol problems, or just problems coping. Those who feel dis-empowered, overwhelmed, lost and confused. I expect my own problematic youth will be inspiration for me…
Wishing you all many blessings in the new year!
