Do you think in pictures or in words?

Do you think in pictures or in words?
Words or pictures, how does a person think? Does it depend on the age of a person or the stage of development the person is in?

Did you jump or tiptoe into 2021?
January is always a time for reflection and goal setting for me, and many others, but this year more than ever before seems to be challenging.

“What is my purpose for writing books?”
My new book called Living Red is out! The journey has been challenging; however, my third book was published this month.

This pandemic is scary. When precautions started in March, I was lucky because I could work from home. At first, I didn’t go anywhere except the grocery store and began wearing a mask when I went.
