“Each piece is it’s own story” ~ Quoted by Eddie  This week has been filled with many ups and downs.

I am very interested in learning about other cultures and beliefs. I have been asked many times what inspires me to write? Along with the next question, “How do I always keep such a positive attitude toward life when there is so much happening so quickly?” I am inspired by my…..

She opens with her podcast with a few special words about pertaining to being in a constant state of love, joy, peace, ease and grace. During this very special interview, Julie took me back in time. She begins our conversation with place that I had hidden in the back of the closet. Until just recently, written…..
