Write in every emotion. Happy, sad, betrayed, excited, vulnerable…whatever. Whatever you feel at a particular moment. When you allow the heart to dictate, the story writes itself. – Ash
There is nothing like keeping a deja vu in your back pocket. Easily triggered by the stimulus that surrounds you. Today, a walk to the edge of the harbour and my whole life flashed back. All it took was the smell of saltwater, the touch of a rains mist, and wonderful memories came flooding back as strong as the approaching tide. A picture is wharf a thousand words. – Ash
If you can’t make a habit of writing, make a habit of observing, then write about it. – Ash
Writer’s block is like being a marionette with clipped strings. The only way you are going to get moving again is to start putting together some lines. – Ash
Writing is the life support that keeps my heart beating. – Ash

So, what do you think of my new logo? Sorry my friends, this post is a definite shameless plug and I apologize right away. But, I can’t help sharing how I feel about it. I’ve posted it on a few social media platforms already with awesome feedback so far and I just had to make a blog entry to keep the happiness going. I commissioned this some time ago and I am super thrilled with how it turned out. The process was a slow one, and I wanted it to be that way. It had to be perfect, and I wanted to get something that speaks to who I am as a writer. I think it hit the exact mark. Don’t you?
In the same conversation and very serendipitous, a very good friend of mine over at One day at a time… suggested a few days ago that one of my quotes would look good on a coffee mug. Ding! A light went off. That suggestion and the fact that my logo was ready, made me think of combining the two and potentially creating a little project for myself. How about dabbling into the world of swag, Ash? Maybe a said coffee cup, or a T-Shirt, or pretty much anything I could detail using both my logo and some of my works. Of course, this is coming off the high of being excited, but I feel motivated. It’s a good feeling, I’m proud and I don’t care who knows it. Let’s see what I come up with, shall we? In saying that, I have attached a photo below to give you a glimpse of my vision and what I am talking about. Please, your comments are welcomed and go ahead and share your thoughts. Feed my excitement and you never know, I might give it a shot. Maybe in the not so distant future you too can own a little Earth to Ash.
Having a good day starts with wanting to in the first place. So, when the focus is happiness, just try your best to finish what you’ve started. – Ash
I write to hold on to time. – Ash
Friends come in flowers, some in weeds. The flowers rise with us, support us, and share in the things that help us grow and prosper. The weeds smother us, try to take us over, steal all the sunshine and choke out life until we fall. When you plant your gardens, make sure you can tell them apart. – Ash
