Okay, well, Thoughtful Minds United……hmmm..interesting concept, great website. This is one of those places that is hard for me to describe. That doesn’t mean it isn’t valued. It is valued. It has a lot to offer BUT you have to go there yourselves and look and learn from what is there because of the complexity which, in reality, isn’t all that complex…but it is to a certain extent and so if I try and explain it I’m just going to screw it up.

I think having a spiritual relationship with the creative forces that surround us at all times is important to us for a variety of reasons.

Lauren is a photographer. She writes that she takes at least 50 photos a day. I’m lucky if I get to take 50 a year. One of my photos is the cover of The Widow’s Cliff and Other Poems. The heading for my page on Facebook I took. The picture of me sitting at a table in a restaurant was taken by a newspaper photographer. I think being able to take photos of people and places well must be an incredible ability. Anyway, she has her work posted and she welcomes visitors!
