Hello and I hope this message finds you to be of good health and cheerful! So are you enjoying the lovely spring weather, lately? The rain and sunshine helps things grow and develop as time goes by. May you be inspired by your muse and continue writing outstanding poems and stories. How wonderful life is and how fragile it can be! Yet we are resilient to the dynamics of living. You will be surprised at how friends and family love to read anything you have to say. Sometimes what you write seems to hold more weight and consideration from others who may learn from you.
However, the spoken and written words are some of the oldest and best ways to reach out and touch the hearts and minds of people. Dream Quest One welcomes you to share your innermost thoughts, creativity and feelings in order to connect to the world, as we know it. I wish you love, success in life and never give up on your dreams. Just tie a knot and hold on for the ride.
Take care and have a fantastic day,

â€œOne great thing about poems and stories, for that matter, is most often they have an ability to touch someone from a far away part of the world. I mean, it's this universal appeal that drives men, women and children together for common purposes. Love and beauty can be found in darkness and in the light, through our own experiences with the poetry and writing.â€ ~ Andre L. West, Dream Quest One
