You don't have to be rich, or smart, or good-looking - It's already yours. Tap into it. More than a place, a person, an idea, Passion is a State of Mind.

"Miguel de Cervantes: ...When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Too much sanity may be madness! To surrender dreams---this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash! And maddest of all---to see life as it is and not as it should be!"

- Man of La Mancha (1972).

Two Cala Lillies on Pink; Yellow Hickory Leaves with Daisy - Glorious flowers by Georgia O'Keefe
Our Passion: A love of life that is best expressed through the love of writing.
Our Mission: To tease, please, provoke, and inspire you, Dear Reader, with words.

"As life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time,
at the peril of being judged not to have lived." - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr

"Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write.
The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for."
ó Ray Bradbury
On the key to success
