Books as therapy

Random Quote Time

Angela Mollard from The Sunday Telegraph's Sunday Magazine August 11 2012 gives advice to her young daughter . 

 "Books are great solace when you need a break from your own story."

Joshua Krause "Solace, In Excerpts" (2008)

"Remember when you were little and you loved kaleidoscopes? The tiniest twist, and the pattern would change. Life's like that - but be exhilarated, not cowed. Talk 'til dawn, swim behind waterfalls, kiss. Be brave. Ahead are days of miracle and wonder."

I love how some days you just stumble across the exact thing you need to keep going.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
