I'll be back...

Hullo, friends, and happy November! Oh, what?! November's already half over??? Oh well... 😄

I come here to inform you that I shall be a way and this blog will be down for a while. Perhaps I shall not be on an especially grand adventure, but I will tell you that when I come back there will be some changes made to this blog. I'm not sure when I'll return, but hopefully by the end of the month. (Don't worry, I won't put on a magic ring and disappear and you'll never hear of me again...😉)

Until then, may the sun shine on your path and beauty surround you always.

Yours truly,
S. F.

A Page From My Quote Book

One of my favourite things to collect is quotes. Words are so beautiful and powerful. Today I was flipping through my little quote book and found this quote. The thought popped into my mind to share it on my blog, so here it is. :)

Never lose an opportunity of seeing  anything that is beautiful;  for beauty is God's handwriting —a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face,  in every fair sky,  in every fair flower,  and thank God for it as a cup of blessing. —Emerson

You heard me fanbling about this book a little while ago, and today's the official release date! I am SO excited to get my hands on my own copy of Burning Rose!

BONUS Before the war, before the legends, before the Separation, there was a man who started it all. There wa…

I came across this awhile ago and think it's a wonderful power boost for when you don't feel like writing. What's your favourite writing advice?

Poetry Leaves #1 - My Place of Solitude

Image
With autumn soon coming, I find myself in a nostalgic state that always comes when the air grows cold and leaves begin changing colours. This year, however, it's different. Instead of just thinking, it's made me write. I want to finish those stories I've started. I want to write more poetry. I want to take myself out of a mindset of dreaming of the things I could discover on pen and paper and acting on those dreams instead.
Which leads to this blog post. I've decided to share the poems I write on this blog, in hopes to keep myself motivated to write them and give me a reason to be a little more active in Blogland. :) Here is my first poem:
My Place of Solitude
I know a place of solitude It's down the road a stretch. I can go there when I need to Have a place to sort my thoughts.
It's a spot down at the river Where it makes a little bend. I found my special "Thinking Rock" there For quiet reigns as king.

As the peaceful river
Goes gliding along
And the…
