Joined 6 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York. Last activity 39 minutes ago.




June 10th. 2017 ~ was the occasion of my 6th anniversary here at Hubpages. I was reminded & congratulated by the HP Team, via email. No fanfare or big celebration followed and for me it was just another day. I did take the time to think fondly on these past six years, how quickly they've flown by & what a profound impact they have made on my muse and me.

I even laugh a little, I suppose, when I think back how every one of the 6 years, was going to be my "last." Oh yes, I had a long list of reasons, which all made sense that it was time for me to move on. Yet, here I am.

As it happened, each time I began to plan my exit, I would think about my dear, sweet, fellow writers, of whom I'm so fond & with whom I have formed a bond. So I'd prompt myself to continue to come up with a way to choose the best of all solutions. After all, that's what I do best, I solve problems. I find answers.

Writers, however, have especially unique ways of doing everything. Yes, we'll admit we're different than the average sort of individual but it's all part of our wonderful, magical muse who lives within. We know we create at the pleasure of our muse, so it's extremely important to nurture & include her in our life at all times, even when she battles for her independence.

Oh faithful reader, please understand,

While the songstress needs to sing and a dancer must dance, there is no question, a writer must write. It's our oxygen and so too, writing is the song in our heart, the dance of our soul, the sun in our mornings and the hauntings of our darkness.

Our readers become our lovers. We run to court them, please and entertain them . So, if you will, sweet loves of mine, join me & my muse on a thousand journeys that span a million miles of tears & mystery~knowledge & understanding. Laugh with us, grow with us, learn with us and take us along, wherever you may go. Whether you might find me here or on the other side of the world, my words are always with you, proving I am loyal and my muse is devoted.

Wishing you Good Health, much Joy and Peace at all times.

Paula J.
