SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

I'm rooting for the STEELERS! I grew up in Greensburg, Pa. and will always be a Steeler fan . That is unless the Bengals ever start winning again. :) I'm looking forward to those advertisements and remain in awe over how much money companies are willing to pay for air time. I think we could probably wipe out world hunger with the money spent on ads this Sunday.

Have fun and may the best team win. GO STEELERS!

NORMAL IS OVERRATED

Okay, I admit it. Hugh Laurie eventually won me over. I can't say that I liked him in House until I saw the episode about what happened to him. Ahh, that made all the difference. Now I can empathize with his outrageous behavior. I appreciate what he's doing to increase awareness about mental illness. After all, what's the fun in being normal? Whatever that is. :)

Share your thoughts. I can just imagine what House might say. :) Scroll down my sidebar to click on the picture of House if you want to support NAMI and buy a cool T-shirt or you can go to http://www.nami.org/ for more information on this very worthy cause. I wonder how many of our lives have been effected by mental illness in one way or another. Help stomp out the stigma and the labels. Make a difference.

Another Inspiring Quote

I love Julia Cameron's work. In fact I might have to spend some time here revisiting, "The Artist's Way."
Julia Cameron said: "All of us are far richer than we imagine. None of us possess a life devoid of magic, barren of grace, divorced from power. Our inner resources, often unmined and even unknown or unacknowledged, are the treasures we carry, what I call our spiritual DNA."

One of my favorite writing quotes. Feel free to share yours.

The people in the story (characters) shall be alive, except in the case of the corpses, and the reader should be able to tell the corpses from the others. Mark Twain
