“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
Oh the joy of being a writer when these two endeavours Churchill speaks of come together in wonderful synchronicity.
P.S – maybe I should amend that slightly to read – successful writer. If I’m making a living in the financial sense it is a teeny-tiny one. But what the heck – small is beautiful – right? Now I better get out in the field and get to work.
reminds me of contented cattle
on the Arizona plains!
after reading your words 🙂
Yes indeed – lovely Arizona. This picture was taken just outside Arconsanti. I hope all my readers would look so content after reading my efforts.
A successful writer will write whether she makes money or not…either way, you’re covered Francis! Great photo!
Thanks, Jill. It certainly can’t be about the money.
Reblogged this on THE RABBIT HATCH..
Thanks so much. Reblogging is the highest form of praise 🙂
The way I see it now is that my life could not be lived fully without writing. I GET this life and I hope I GIVE more in return.
What a great realization. It really frees the spirit. Getting and giving back is what it’s all about.
[…] Good news over on my wife Francis' blog – she has just released the e-book version of her new novel. Set against the backdrop of Northern Vancouver Island, The Light Never Lies is a story of heartbreaking need and desperate measures. People grapple with the loss of cherished ideals to discover that love comes through the unique family ties they create as they go. Some of you might recognize the cover image, as the view from our front deck. To get a fuller sense of what it is all about, why don't you head on over to Fran's blog, Disappearing In Plain Sight.
