you see yourself through another’s eyes.
Echo Montgomery Garrett, author of My Orange Duffel Bag: A Journey to Radical Change, generously agreed to read my manuscript, Windows to the Soul, and offered the following quote.
“A haunting tale. Diana Black has spun a tightly woven, suspenseful story with unforgettable characters whose actions cause us to do our own soul-searching about the afterlife, love, promises we make, grief and—one of the highest callings of all—forgiveness.”
I’d done all that? I was just thrilled to have taken my story from two words (“She’s dead!”) to 15,000 to 27K and finally to over 50,000 — enough for a novel!
My dear friend and fellow author had seen more to my accomplishment than I had.
How fortunate there’s the view we have of ourselves and our achievements and the view others have of us, and that all are valid and potential windows to our soul.
So here’s to a soulful BLOG that encourages us to pull back the curtains, throw open the sash and peer into our very own wonderous soul!
A BLOG to help us better understand our friends, family, colleagues, dare we say even strangers, by taking every opportunity to look each other in the eye. (Did you know that during a toast the majority of people stare at their glass and not into another’s eyes? Notice next time …)
Join me on this joyful journey and offer your own soul-searching thoughts and ideas.
I know… kind of airy-fairy. But, consider this …
