A Journey

Thank you universe...it is finished. To my mother, where ever you are, I kept my promise, the story is told in a way that I could tell it...as you wished.

All I can say at this time...is it is a miracle. I just wanted to share the miracle with you from Chicago, Il to Daegu, South Korea to Paris to Nanjing China...and all I can say to all of you...follow your heart. There is a reason to go against the flow...and why we have the lessons along the way. For often we judge on the outward appearance...not realizing and not knowing who is really around us.

Great love to you all.

Marilyn - congratulations ! A book is quite an accomplishment - I am very curious about it as the title and the cover art intrigue me - I will look it up on the website you mention above - I wish you well!

Marilyn said...

Hi Marci...all you have to do is click on the image and it will take you right to the preview. All I can tell you was I know this was the right way for me.

And the reason I posted it was to encourage you all to pursue your personal visions.

It is only possible if you see it...and as soon as I saw the work of Mr. Brooker, I knew it was time to write the work I avoided writing for over 20 years...

now I am free to go on to the next phase in my life.

All I can say at this point...is I am ready.

Congratulations Marilyn for your achievements and your release! Thank you also for giving me something; some fire back in my belly. Your comments on my post have been the spark I have been waiting for, maybe have been receiving, but avoiding. My soul stopped in its tracks and said very loudly, 'LISTEN!' and I did, however painful. You are an angel :)

Marilyn said...

Sweetheart...you are wonderful. I don't usually tap people on the head, but I think what I saw is you didn't trust yourself. The tendency is to second guess that fire in our belly and a lot of writer's groups don't take the chance to help each other get to that next level. Knowledge is just parroted information, but wisdom...those are the application lessons in life. We all have pieces that no one else has...through our life experience.

And plainly spoken...this book just rendered by me is about my own experience, one I hope many people have not gone through...but for those who have or are going through...I hope it is a gift of hope. That is why I wrote it.

Those are the things to give to others...and that is what can't compare to anything else...the authentic experience of not just surviving, but hope to thrive.

Thank you for your kind words.

How wonderful Marilyn! Congratulations!

Marilyn said...

Thank you Heather. I hope as more of us publish our works we share them...to show the results of this group. That was my intention for the other writers who are here. You can blog all you want, but if you aren't working on your manuscript you aren't producing your work. There are many talented writers...but it takes more than that. You need it before you...right in front of your eyes so you can see it. Once you see it in your mind its already created.

This one is special because it is the last book for me and because it was the most difficult one to produce on many levels.

I wanted to show it was possible, even though I am in China, even though I am not going to do any book signings, or really any promotion...You can do it.

You can do anything you want and plant that seed deep down in your heart to know what your intention to the world is.

So for all of the writers who contribute here who are working on their dreams...do it. Hold the work in your heart and realize what it truly represents...

making what you may have thought to be impossible...turning it into reality.

Since I have come up from impossible situations, David and Goliaths throughout my life...this was the way this had to be...for me.

Your way...is your way. Your dreams, visions and aspirations are all beautiful and unique unto themselves.

And all of the friends and family that came together to assist me...I was not only humbled, but touched by their love for me.

That is something money will never replace.
