Passion Block

I remember the process for writing my first novel. There were some days that I could just write and write and write. The ideas would flow from one sentence to the next.

Molding the Clay

I thought a unique way to consider following your passion(s) was to think of it in terms of molding clay.

Passions of Single Parenting

So, the topic that came to mind for me today was how the lifestyle of single parents can sometimes alter the perception of being able to follow passions.
