Angels, aliens and fairies: have our myths come to life?

At any moment, I usually have seven or eight books in various states of completion—but recently the books that have surfaced to the top of my pile are about aliens and UFOs, angels and fairies.

Invitation to blog: What is tugging at your heart?

So much of our lives can be spent living the “To Do” list. Things we HAVE TO GET DONE – it’s never ending, and exhausting. Worst of all, we can get to the end of our day – or our lifetime – and wonder where it all went. As life rushes past us, we too [Read More...]
