She always believed there are moments in our lives that can be defi ned as a transition between the "before and the after," between the "cause and the eff ect." She is in a space between her comfort zone and infi nity. Sometimes she wants to hide and not be seen, not be open, and not be vulnerable, but she also realizes that as a writer, she is obligated. So she comes to the conclusion that there are two ways she can do this, soft and gentle or fast and hard; either way, both will get her to the other side, if she just creates. Whenever you or someone chooses a path designated and appointed just for you, follow that path to the end. Sure, you may sometimes come to a roadblock then take the detour. You see, a detour could be an interstate highway to your dream. It's not the end of the road. Writing makes one's Soul smile and their Spirit shine. It is only me and God's Shadow. It is not an occasional resort for me, but a constant abiding place where she can fi nd not only consolation, but also habitation. It's my home, my safe haven, my quietude and my quiet space where my writing and creativity consumes me, and yet cannot quench the fi re within. My heart speaks to me, and the words penetrate and pierce my soul to the very core of my being. Words of encouragement and inspiration, words that we dare not utter, but is imprinted and embedded deep within our souls. I learned early in life that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph and victory over it. Seemingly, I gain my greatest strength in the midst of distress, because it allows me to grow brave by refl ection. I try in all aspects of my life to live creatively. I reside in my quiet space, where no one else has ever been, only God and my Brave Audacity with Humble Weakness.
