  My Journal

July 16, 2018

Beyond the thin veil of 'Sahara' dust  permeating air and water before us,  I felt the sandy footprints of  travelers and fishermen.  I heard the surprised delight of children gathering sea shells and calling to the gulls.

Inspiration for Writing


"A Cup of Faith"

Add a bit of Inspiration to Your Writing!

A cup of Earl Grey black tea 'delicately blended with lemon and oil of bergamot' to which I added thick cream that is essential for my taste buds, and I set off to wander among the tea shops in my memories.  Aromas of freshly baked blueberry scones mix with the lemony fragrance of nearby cups of tea.  Along the walls behind the marble counter, Jasmine, Chamomile, Ginger, Raspberry, Rose, and a myriad of other tea choices greet me.
