First of all, please allow me to WELCOME all of you new readers to The Silver Pen! Thanks to yesterday’s LIVESTRONG letter and The Glitter Guide profile, I’ve met quite a few new and fabulous people (Silver Lining). I’m so happy that you’re here!
As you will come to know, I’m a big fan of feedback. So, please feel free to noodle around the site and allow your inner Looky-Lou to have free reign. Then, let me know what you think! Anything you’d like to see? Anything you’d like to share? C’mon…no need to be shy here!
Secondly, as many of you know, I am a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. I’m honored and humbled by the opportunity to do so.
Here is my most latest post: Including Children at Funerals.
WTF, you ask? How do I go from Glitter Guide to talking about Including Children at Funerals, you wonder? Well, the truth of the matter is that this is how I roll. I have a passion for balancing the terrestrial with the celestial (as a dear friend describes it). In other words, style & fashion are as much a part of my life as are heavy duty (and sometimes earth shattering) life circumstances.
Life is a roller coaster. Heaven knows that after having worked in pediatric hospice for 10 years and now having spent over a year as a FBC (f-bomb breast cancer) patient, I get the full essence of the ride.
My professional experiences combined with my personal experiences have made me acutely aware of the obvious yet unsettling fact that nothing in this world stays the same for long. The key is how we respond to inevitable change. I happen to be a person who tries everyday to step into the fullness of my humanity, to stay awake in the face of fear, to take risks and always (always!) look for Silver Linings in life.
Thank you for joining me! Thank you so very much!
PS – I have a habit of dropping f-bombs. I just do.
