"Good Day,How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here,…"
Spent 20-some years working as an ad/pr agency owner & consultant. Got my BA from Linfield College and my MFA in creative writing from Antioch in '99. Sold my agency, Imagine Inc., to move to the Oregon Coast. There I rebuilt and remodeled a small building on my property and opened the Cottage at Roads End, an ocean-view getaway for writers and visual artists from across the country. Now I'm happily writing fiction (my OWN words at last!), have been modestly published and give occasional readings throughout the NW. Have completed a novel and a collection of magical realism short stories.

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

When disaster strikes, our natural instinct is to take cover and seek shelter. But in severe weather, especially the type that breeds tornadoes like we saw in Oklahoma and parts of the Midwest this week, there are those who ride toward the storm.
When Margot Adler learned that a cousin had hidden from the Nazis in Amsterdam, she was stunned. Adler started digging around and discovered that like Anne Frank, 25,000 Dutch Jews hid, and two-thirds of them survived. Her cousin was one of them.

Dominique Venner, a well-known French historian who embraced and wrote about ultra-conservative causes for decades, committed suicide today in front of the alter at Notre Dame Cathedral. He had left a post on his blog decrying the legalization of same sex marriage in France. "An infamous law ... can always be repealed," he wrote. "It will require new, spectacular and symbolic actions to rouse people from their complacency."
