International Day of the Girl Child: Empower Girls. End Violence.

My oldest blogging buddy, Elizabeth, over at Mirth and Motivation, has written a post recognizing a very special day: International Day of the Girl Child.

As parents, we know how important it is to uplift our daughters and help them recognize their own power, strengths and talents.

As writers, we try to infuse our girl characters with strength, humor, intelligence and assertiveness.


I know you will enjoy Elizabeth’s post. She has one of the finest multicultural sites in the world.

On Music: The Shorthand of Emotion…

Even when Elizabeth of Mirth and Motivation says she is writing a short post, her efforts far surpass most of mine.  I’ve been following her blog for a year…when I can only read one post…hers is the one I pick.  Her photography is beautiful…her words are meaningful…her research is top-notch!

Do you like music…Elizabeth provides us with some of the best.
