“I am going to look around”

Spring. My front yard. Thinking of Anne Lamott: “I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.”Photo: a budding tree in the front yard of Lisa Berne, author of You May Kiss the Bride (Avon Books)

“Like a riot in the heart”

I thought you might like to see my Twitter header. It has one of my all-time favorite quotes on it. (An especially apt one for a romance writer.)

Also, I love the font, even though the commas look sort of like jumbo cashews.

“Stories yet to be written”

Oh my gosh, do I love this image. Tales not yet told; characters not yet conjured into existence; love not yet found, fought for, and won . . .

“A message we all need to hear again and again”

A few days ago, in BookPage, Kristan Higgins published a beautiful essay, “Why Do We Crave a Happily Ever After?” I liked it so much I made a little infographic with a quote from it — like a badge you’d pin onto your blouse. :)
