You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

Monday's Muse: Nature Inspired

Photo source: National Geographic 
Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Isn't this photo just breathtaking!?!? I love the colors and patterns that nature has produced on this canvas of sandstone. For my next vacation, I would love to visit this canyon.  

Quote for the Day: 
"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play
no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality
and an imagined thought or image. What we continually
think about eventually will manifest in our lives."
~Robert Collier~

This IS a gorgeous photo! Thanks for sharing! I love your blog and am a new follower - don't know how I missed it before :) I am also doing a reading challenge (way behind in updating!) Perhaps I missed it somewhere, but what grade do you teach? Do you write Picture Books? MG? YA? Looking forward to getting to know you through the campaign!

Wow, that is a gorgeous shot! I love all of the formations that can be made with sandstone (we've got a lot around here). That is definitely a place I'd like to visit some day.

What a beautiful picture. It looks like fabric of some kind, some sort of fabulously expensive gossamer dress. Love the quote.
I’m delighted to award you The Versatile Blogger Award:
Have a great day :)

That is a beautiful picture. I have to say though, my subconscious mind MUST have a sense of humor.
