sacred space with trees

To have a sacred place is an absolute necessity for anybody today. You must have a room or a certain hour of the day or so, where you do not know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody or what they owe you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be.

Many of you are not aware that I am also an artist. I have been reluctant to mention my art website, SusanLStewartArt.com, because it wasn’t functioning properly. I checked today, and the magic fairies must have been at work! It’s fine now, and I hope it will stay that way.

I love hearing from you!

Hope you enjoy,

For our next trip, this time to Italy several years later, I decided we would figure out a way to just take a carry-on and personal item each. This made … Read more

I didn’t remove it all because that’s the way people talk; they repeat themselves. Pay attention the next time you’re in a conversation and listen for what people – and yourself – say to make a point. Sometimes I catch my repetitions. Even though I’m conscious of doing it, I can’t seem to stop.

So now “Unjustly Accused” is 6,000 words shorter while retaining all of the important stuff. If you bought the first edition, you can go to your Amazon account and it should automatically update your copy to the second edition. It’s easy to tell which is which. The first edition cover was a dark blue/black with a barred window at the top and light reflected on the floor. The second edition cover has a photo of rusty prison bars … Read more
