Dumbledore's Wisdom
It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.
- Albus Dumbledore: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

About this journal




Worthy Words
If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

Sirius Black: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.

Albus Dumbledore: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Unwritten
I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
Oh, oh, oh
I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inner visions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

NATASHA BEDINGFIELD - Unwritten Lyrics

Quotes
Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The Lord Of the Rings
All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The Fellowship of the Ring
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

~Theodore Roosevelt
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

~John Lennon
When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
could it be worse?
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you
And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Coldplay - Fix You
So let me go out there
I can breathe fresh air
Stay with you all night
Just let me love you
Just for a while, want to
Be with you all night
Be with you all night
Until I fall asleep

Back to work on the SG series :)

Checking in to say that things are finally settling down into an even keel again here at Casa Rushlight. Thank you to all of you who have continued to buy my books and support me in that way over this past year, and by spreading the word about how much you've enjoyed them to your friends. It's been an incredible help to me as I've been struggling through the financial insecurity and uncertainty of these past months due to the pandemic. Every single comment I've read or email I've received letting me know how my books have touched your lives has been treasured and lightened my spirits immensely. I can't tell you how much your support and encouragement have meant to me.

Now that I'm feeling more stable and focused once again, I'm planning to get back to conquering my writing goals. The first one of those is to finish the new book in the Sacred Guardian series. Poor Kaori and Hunter have been languishing for far too long waiting for me to finish the final polishing of their story and get it out there for all of you to read. I'm planning to get started on tackling that this afternoon and intend to have a finished book ready to publish in the very near future.

That being said, I think it would be in my best interests to start focusing on marketing the series once again, and hopefully picking up some new readers who might not have had an opportunity to read the earlier books yet. So look out for those notices as I will likely be planning some giveaways and other goodies as we move forward toward the publishing of book 4.

If you aren't familiar with the series, you can find out all about it on my website here: bit.ly/SGseries

Here is my latest promo graphic for the series to hopefully start getting you excited about it: :)





Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! Hoping you all got through the chaos and challenges of 2020 with a minimum of damage and are looking forward to getting a fresh start in the new year. I've been through my share of personal tragedy and challenges these past months, and am looking forward to the opportunity to take a breath and move forward again with my writing goals.

This is going to be a quick entry because the chaos has not yet settled down entirely for me. I just wanted to check in, let you know I'm okay, and that I hope to be interacting more with you in the coming months. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with all of you. I miss my online community. :)

Take care and stay safe. Much love to all!
