Soar like the eagles!
Ultimate meaning of love.

A wee one picked a pretty flower
and gave it to her Mom.
Everyone around her smiled with joy.
She grew older and was taught
a dandelion was “just a weed”
but did the flower really change
when the eyes of her heart

and made them into
such delicious wine!
How eye opening!

I give my all to you and
ask that you enable me
to reflect your joy and hope
on this day and always. Amen
In you, Lord my God,
I put my trust.

When I stand alone
I cannot hear the music
but when instead I hold your hand
the lyrical voices of freedom, hope, love and peace
make my heart soar!

It probably more true (are there levels of truth?) for self published authors, because if anyone is going to promote your book, it’s going to be you.
As to progress–well–there is progress, slow but steady. Since I self-published this volume, if I want it on book store shelves, I have to go to private books stores, and negotiate with each store owner personally. I have managed to get into a couple brick and mortar stores here in northern New Jersey. I am working on putting together a…
