Tuesday, January 8th, 2013 by Susan Gabriel

Living a creative lifeNone of us like to be called names. But what if being a little weird and making people talk is a good thing? In that case, I love being a little weird. It means I am living a creative life.

Are you living a creative life, too? If so, do people think you are a little weird? I hope so. Let’s give them something to talk about! xo


The Secret Sense of Wildflower

”…astute observations and wonderfully turned phrases, with nary a cliché to be found. She could be an adolescent Scout Finch…A quietly powerful story, at times harrowing but ultimately a joy to read.
