Picasso's La Vie (Life)
Time to chat a bit to the world at large. I've been experiencing strange days but I keep remembering a saying I heard a few months back that really helps me keep my wits about me and my perspective on track: "Everything will be alright in the end. If it's not alright...it's not the end." I really believe that. As I mentioned in my last post, I recently experienced a blue period, but unlike Picasso's Blue Period, my blue period did not produce works of art or even words on a computer screen. All it did was make me BLUE. In trying to understand the cause of my blues, I determined it has a lot to do with reality setting in: the reality of living in a new home in a new state with new people and navigating a new life that is so different from the one I left behind. But I have never been afraid of change...of trying something new...of being somewhere else. There is a reason this blog is called Somewhere Else. And in case anyone out there who might be reading this thinks I regret my decision to embark upon a new life with a man I married a mere 13 days after meeting him in person for the first time (after two months of getting to know each other via telephone calls, text messages, emails and words with friends chats), I want you to know, I do not regret my decision. I love my husband and it gives me great joy to be able to type these four words: Oscar: I love you! Happy four-month anniversary today!
So.....The Dark Prince is out. I have submitted my Gypsy treatment to some Hollywood producers and I am preparing to bring The Shadow King into the world. I cannot wait to reveal the cover. It's gorgeous and very dramatic. You'll see Andrew on the cover. It's not quite ready but I expect it will be in the next few days. I am very excited! If you've been reading my trilogy, please message me and let me know what you think about Laura's journey so far. And let me know which boy you love and want Laura to be with. I suspect you'll all pick Miguel, but don't count Andrew out! He has surprises in store.
I shall close here but before I do, I want to wish Rina a happy birthday! She's my grandbaby's mom. And I will leave you with this awesome quote supposedly uttered by a man named Patrick Overton (I don't know who he is):
"When you come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught how to fly."
Love that! Until next time!
